Idaho hospitals still recovering from cyberattack

Idaho Falls (Idaho) Community Hospital and its clinics are still working to bring its IT systems back online after a cyberattack forced the hospitals to take them offline May 30. 

In a June 2 update, Idaho Falls said its staff have been "working around the clock" to determine the scope of the attack and to bring its systems back online.

The news comes after Idaho Falls Community Hospital and Mountain View Hospital, a physician-owned hospital, reported on May 30 that a cyberattack had infiltrated their computer systems, forcing staff to take them offline.

The attack had caused both facilities to divert ambulances to nearby hospitals and close some of their clinics. 

Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Health is a minority investor for the Idaho hospitals.
