GILLETTE (WNE) — About 98 percent to 99 percent of the computer systems at Campbell County Health were expected to be back online Friday, two weeks after a ransomware attack at the hospital left it without its 1,500 computers.

Campbell County Health officials expressed their appreciation for the work staff, state and federal agencies have done and continue to do in tackling the attack.

“In conjunction with our law enforcement partners, our cyber security response team and everything else, we are safe, we are protected,” CCH IT Director Matt Sabus said at the hospital board’s fall retreat Thursday.

“I just want to applaud our team,” CEO Andy Fitzgerald said. “The only good thing to come out of this is that they just keep plugging away at it.

“We’re not back to normal, but it’s much better than where we were a week ago.”

On Wednesday night, more than 60 employees showed up with only 40 minutes of notice to come and work on the systems. They were divided into teams and were able to clean up close to 500 computer systems in under two hours.
