Downtime procedures implemented at St. Mary’s, clinical services continue

April 22nd, 2021

———————————————–

As we reported on our website earlier today, St. Mary’s was dealing with an unplanned network outage throughout the day today.

St. Mary’s experienced a cyber incident in the early morning hours of April 22, 2021. As a result, we suspended access to our information technology applications while we worked to contain the incident.

Our investigation to date suggests that this incident has not affected our patient data or interfered with our patient care. We are actively working to resolve the issue and restore our systems as quickly as possible. During this time, we have moved to well-established downtime procedures at the hospital and our clinical services continue.

“It was good to confirm that patient data and information has not been compromised,” said St. Mary’s President Lee Fairclough. “I am grateful to our St. Mary’s teams that have worked through this challenge to maintain clinical service for our patients, limit the impact and restore services.”

Thank you for your patience as we work through this situation.
