GAMA STATEMENT REGARDING RECENT CYBERATTACK ON LOVELACE HEALTH SYSTEM
This week, the Lovelace Health System suffered a cyberattack, which caused a network outage. The attack resulted in temporary shutdowns of parts of the Lovelace system. Lovelace administration is working tirelessly along with its doctors and staff to get the system back online and continue to provide safe, high level care to New Mexicans. We all realize that this has strained an already over burdened system.
Cyberattacks on health care facilities are serious criminal acts that affect thousands of people. We applaud the entire medical community across the state of New Mexico, whom have stepped up to fill the gaps left by the Lovelace attack. We ask for continued collaboration from our medical community and ask for the ongoing patience and understanding from patients as we work to accommodate all New Mexicans and their health care needs.
Promoting excellence in patient care by identifying
and solving physician practice problems in any environment through advocacy, education and collegiality.
