Emergency Shut Down at Medical Clinic in TN after Cyberattack

July 22, 2023


A cyberattack on Murfreesboro Medical Clinic & SurgiCenter (MMC) in Tennessee shut down operations for around two weeks.

On April 22, 2023 the network was rapidly shut down to contain the attack. MMC said the action taken limited the damage caused. MMC has been working with cybersecurity experts and law enforcement to investigate the incident and determine the extent of the attack. While those processes were completed, the decision was taken to close all operations.

MMC planned to reopen on a limited basis on May 3, 2023, then restore full operations shortly thereafter. However, the recovery process took longer than planned.
