GILLETTE (WNE) — Campbell County Health’s operations may be back to normal after a September ransomware attack crippled the organization, but it is still working to recover from its financial losses.
“There’s no impact on operations at this point,” CCH Chief Financial Officer Mary Lou Tate said about the effects of the attack.
The assault knocked out more than 1,500 computers and servers throughout the organization, which included Campbell County Memorial Hospital and the Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center.
CCH still has not received settlement money from its insurance companies, which is expected to be around $1.5 million — the amount lost due to the attack, Tate said.
“... we had a few weeks where we had less volume and less revenues,” she said. “When we get the insurance settlement revenues [they] will be accounted for, but the volumes will never come back for the year.”
The insurance companies requested information on the hospital’s finances for three months before and after the attack, Tate said. CCH has given them a “massive amount of data,” but it could be another month or two before the hospital learns more about the settlement.
The hospital also is still examining how much it cost in overtime hours and extra personnel that were used to address the attack.
