At the Hillel Yaffe Medical Center in Hadera, we were informed that a cyber incident occurred in the morning that damaged the hospital’s computer systems and that the medical center is now run using alternative systems used to provide ongoing care to patients.
The hospital said that the hackers’ demand event for the ransom was reported to the Ministry of Health and the National Cyber System immediately and is being treated by “the best experts in the field,” according to the announcement.
Mahalel Yaffe also stated that “the hospital is currently operating in alternative systems for the treatment of patients. The medical treatment at the hospital takes place on an ongoing basis, with the exception of non-urgent elective activity. ”
This is, according to the hospital’s announcement, an infidelity-type cyber incident without prior notice, which damaged the hospital’s computer systems. However, the hospital was quick to emphasize, as stated, that apart from non-urgent elective activity – the entire treatment of patients is conducted as usual.
At the same time, the nearby Laniado Hospital, located in the city of Netanya, is preparing to receive patients from Hillel Yaffe, should the need arise. In coordination with MDA, which is prepared for this, patients from Hillel Yaffe will be transferred to Lenyado if necessary.
The hospital said the public will be updated on details in line with developments.
