Experts are investigating after computer systems at two central Florida hospitals showed signs of unusual activity.
Village Regional Hospital and UF Health Leesburg Hospital switched multiple systems to protect patient information during Monday night’s incident, switching to pen and paper to document patient visits, news outlets report.
“We have since learned that the activity was related to a cybersecurity incident,” Frank Faust, a spokesman for the University of Florida’s Health Central Florida, told the Orlando Sentinel. “With respect to Protected Information, at this time we do not believe that any patient or personnel records have been compromised or shared.”
Faust said information technology teams from the University of Florida are investigating.
“It takes time to fully resolve these types of situations,” Faust said. “We are investigating what happened systematically to understand precisely and precisely what happened, and take appropriate action to resolve any and all issues.”
The village is one of the largest retirement communities in the country, with a population of over 130,000.
