UTHealth ER’s Placed In “Divert Status”

They placed UTHealth East Texas emergency rooms in “divert status” on Thanksgiving Day because of a potential cybersecurity incident. Divert status indicates that they take patients in ambulances or airlifts to other locations for treatment. UTHealth East Texas operates ten hospitals and more than 90 clinics in the region. Over the last nine months, cyber-attacks have forced them to divert ambulances from Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, and Pennsylvania hospitals. There have been 209 publicly reported ransomware attacks on U.S. healthcare organizations in 2023.
