KAWARTHA LAKES: Following a cybersecurity event which occurred earlier this month, Ross Memorial Hospital (RMH) estimates it will be “a number of weeks before operations return to normal.”
This finding was announced in a press release, sent out on Friday, February 17th.
On Tuesday, February 7th, the local hospital announced they had “declared a Code Grey, at 10:53 p.m. on Sunday, February 5th, due to a suspected cybersecurity incident.”
The most recent press release stated the hospital has “been working diligently to bring all impacted systems back online.”
As of press time, the Code Grey remains in place at the local hospital, despite what hospital officials describe as “significant progress” since the Code Grey was announced.
“At this time, RMH can’t provide a specific timeline as to when the Code Grey will be lifted. The hospital will continue to share updates as the restoration process continues and more information becomes available,” the press release concluded.
The hospital is continuing to encourage people, with “less urgent conditions,” to consider other care options, as the hospital works to recover from this incident.
