On Thursday, November 9, 2023, Tri-City Medical Center became aware of unauthorized activity on our computer network. We immediately took our systems offline to halt the activity and engaged the help of third-party cybersecurity specialists to help investigate the matter, work to restore our systems, and take steps to prevent something similar in the future.
Our top priority remains the health and wellness of our patients, and we continue to serve patients with emergency needs at this time. We have temporarily halted elective procedures while we work to restore our systems to full functionality. We are also coordinating with law enforcement.
We have been in contact with San Diego County, local first responder agencies and neighboring healthcare facilities to ensure the health of our patients and community.
We will share updates with our staff, patients and the community when new information becomes available through our investigation.
Thank you for your support.
