There has been good progress made to return our IT system back to full capacity, following the region-wide cyber security incident over a week ago. A full restoration now appears to be just a few days away. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time. Please note that we are still without email and the internet, yet the majority of our clinical and support systems are operational once again. No services have been disrupted over the last week or so.
Please contact the hospital on 5683 9777 or the Community Health Centre on 5683 9780 should you have any queries about our services or appointment times.

There has been steady progress made throughout the week to return South Gippsland Hospital’s Information Technology (IT) system back to its full capacity, following a region-wide cyber security incident that occurred on Monday 30 September.

Several key IT systems are now on line and our ability to provide clinical services has not been affected at any stage as a result of the incident.

There have been no cancellations to surgery. Our urgent, inpatient, maternity and community care services remain fully functioning.

Please note as there is no email capability currently, if you need to contact us, please do so by phone on 5683 9777.

Thank you for your patience.

South Gippsland Hospital’s Information Technology (IT) system has been impacted by a region-wide cyber security incident.

This has not affected our ability to provide clinical services.

There have been no cancellations to surgery.

Our Urgent Care Centre is operating as usual, as are all the hospital inpatient and community care services.

Paul Greenhalgh Acting Chief Executive Officer, said the incident has impacted on shared IT systems between hospitals within the Gippsland Health Alliance (GHA) and South West Rural Health Alliance (SWARH).

“Despite the interruption to the regional IT system, we are still fully operational as we have implemented our business continuity plan and have strengthened our paper-based systems to maintain services and provide safe high quality care.
