Idaho hospitals hit by cyberattack, closed clinic

Two Idaho Falls, Idaho-based hospitals and partnering clinics reported a cyberattack on computer systems May 30.

Mountain View Hospital, a physician-owned hospital, posted on its website that its IT teams identified a cyberattack and took immediate action. The attack affected Mountain View, Idaho Falls Community Hospital and partnering clinics.

"Our teams are taking the necessary steps to resolve the situation. Until we feel confident the virus has been fully removed, some clinics will be closed, Idaho Falls Community Hospital will divert ambulances to nearby hospitals and normal workflows may look a little different," the post states.

The Mountain View Hospital website continues to note a network issue as of May 31.
