Ascension faced a ransomware attack resulting in severe disruptions across 140 hospitals, implicating patient care and treatment schedules. The recovery was hindered by the need for 'assurance' letters to reconnect systems with suppliers, adding to the operational chaos. The impact extended to canceled appointments and surgeries, and pushed medical staff to revert to manual processes. The organization's swift action towards transparency and reconnection of supplies post-attack mitigated prolonged delays.
