Update on Cyberattack

The University of Vermont Health Network is working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Vermont Department of Public safety to investigate a now confirmed cyberattack that has affected some of our systems. We expect that it will take some time to restore and we are working as quickly as possible to return to normal operations.

The attack has caused variable impacts at each of our affiliates (details here). Staff are continuing to follow well-practiced standby procedures to ensure safe patient care. We understand the difficulty this causes for our patients and the community and apologize for the impact. There have been some changes to patient appointments and we are attempting to reach those patients who have been affected. We will continue to provide systems and patient service updates when they are available.

All media inquiries regarding the investigation should be directed to FBI Public Affairs Specialist Sarah Ruane at scruane@fbi.gov.
