Stillwater Medical Center officials say they recently discovered an electronic security breach that affected some of their systems.

A social media post said they “immediately took steps to ensure the security of our environment, launched an investigation with the assistance of a computer forensic firm and notified law enforcement.”

Hospital officials said they’re working to bring the systems back online as quickly as possible.

They also said they “have no evidence that any patient data has been compromised as a result of the incident. We remain operational, and we continue to provide patient care.”

As of the time of this publication, there is nothing on their web site to suggest anything is amiss. Their most recent update on Facebook said

At this stage of our investigation, to date, we have no evidence that any patient data has been compromised as a result of the incident. We remain operational and we continue to provide patient care.
This is all of the information we have to share until our investigation is complete and we understand the full scope of the incident.
