Most Heritage Valley Health System services open after cyberattack

UPDATE (6/30/17): Heritage Valley Health System announced Friday that, with the exception of its satellite based laboratory and diagnostic imaging services, all facilities are open after a global cyberattack affected its network.

"Heritage Valley Sewickley and Heritage Valley Beaver hospitals, Heritage Valley Medical Group, Heritage Valley Pediatrics and Tri-State Obstetrics & Gynecology physician practices, ConvenientCare walk in clinics and all other community locations are open and operational," according to the health system's website.

Patients are encouraged to keep scheduled appointments that are not lab draw and diagnostic imaging services. However, lab and diagnostic imaging services are functional and available at Heritage Valley Beaver and Heritage Valley Sewickley hospitals.

Lab and diagnostic imaging services are unavailable at the following locations:

  • Heritage Valley Medical Neighborhoods in Chippewa, Edgeworth, West Allegheny, Moon Township, Calcutta, Ellwood City and Robinson Township;
  • Ambridge Laboratory Draw – 1155 Merchant Street, Ambridge
  • Baden Laboratory Draw – 220 Ohio River Boulevard, Baden
  • Beaver Falls Laboratory Draw – 1125 Seventh Avenue, Beaver Falls
  • Heart & Vascular Laboratory Draw – 605 Sharon Road, Beaver
  • Heritage Valley Women's Health Center – 200 Pleasant Drive, Center Township
  • Hopewell Laboratory Draw and Diagnostics – 5000 Industrial Blvd, Aliquippa and 2032 Brodhead Road, Hopewell



Services in the Heritage Valley Health System continue to be limited, two days after the network was affected by a global cyberattack.

Similar to Wednesday, lab and diagnostic services at Heritage Valley medical neighborhoods and community locations are Thursday. Those services are available at Heritage Valley Beaver and Heritage Valley Sewickley hospitals.

ConvenientCare and Heritage Valley Rehab services are open during their regularly scheduled business hours.

The announcement comes two days after the hospital group confirmed it was hit by the Peyta cyberattack that impacted its computer system. Doctors and nurses could not access patient records, X-rays or test results. They were still treating patients.

"Corrective measures supplied by our antivirus software vendor have been developed and are being implemented and tested within the health system," the network said in a release.

Heritage Valley has two hospitals - one in Beaver and one in Sewickley - and 60 doctors' offices along with 18 satellite centers. It employs more than 3,500 people and provides care in Beaver, Butler, Lawrence and Allegheny counties.

A spokeswoman told Channel 11 they have found no evidence that patient information has been accessed, but they are still investigating.
