Jackson Hospital wards off attempted ransomware attack


By: Shelia Mader

The TIMES received word this morning there was an issue involving a possible ransomware attack on Jackson Hospital. We reached out to Amy Milton, PR/Marketing Director at Jackson Hospital. She said the hospital initially received word of the possible attack around 11 p.m. Sunday evening.

Milton said, “Jackson Hospital received notice from a third-party vendor of a potential ransomware attack. Jackson Hospital’s IT department immediately shut down all servers after being notified and currently is slowly rebooting the hospital’s entire computer system. There is no evidence that any patient information was compromised. Jackson Hospital is open and patient care is not impacted.”

Business is continuing as usual, and she expects no interruption in services.
