Be prepared for some issues if you have to make a scheduled or unscheduled visit to HSHS Hospitals like St. Francis in Litchfield, Holy Family in Greenville, St. Joseph's in Highland, St. Joseph's in Breese and St. John's in Springfield as well as any other HSHS Hospital. They are experiencing technical difficulties and have released a statement.
HSHS is experiencing a systemwide outage of clinical and administrative applications. Providers in our hospitals and clinics are following our normal downtime procedures so we can continue to care for our patients, which is our top priority.
We also are experiencing outages to phones and the internet. We are working diligently to restore services and to establish alternative communications mechanisms.
We will provide updates as we learn more.
