Ambulances were forced to divert to other hospitals when a cyberattack knocked computer systems offline at hospitals in Connecticut and Pennsylvania, according to the hospital spokespeople. Crozer Health, with three hospitals and a medical center in Philadelphia, was still diverting ambulances for stroke and trauma patients to other hospitals because of a “ransomware attack,” Crozer Health spokesperson Lori Bookbinder told reporters. The hack hit Prospect Medical Holdings and affected all of their health care facilities, according to a statement from PMH affiliate Eastern Connecticut Health Network. PMH owns 16 hospitals in California, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island, according to its website.
