Atlantic General Hospital Maryland Ransomware Attack Review
The Lyon Firm is actively involved in class action personal privacy cases and is investigating Atlantic General Hospital data breach claims for plaintiffs in Maryland.
Atlantic General Hospital in Maryland is experiencing network disruptions and outages after a significant ransomware attack deployed this weekend, according to local news outlet WMDT47.
The outages caused “limited” patient interruptions, as clinicians maintain operations with downtime procedures. The hospital is continuing to treat patients with all services remaining in operation, outside of its pharmacy, outpatient imaging, and pulmonary function testing.
A notice posted to the Atlantic General website also notes the walk-in outpatient lab “is temporarily closed until further notice.”
The hospital has not added any further notices to its website, and its social media account makes no reference to the outages. The ongoing incident is currently under investigation with support from an outside cybersecurity firm.
