A suspected cyber attack has forced hospitals in Melbourne’s east offline.

Eastern Health, which operates the Box Hill, Maroondah and Healesville hospitals, shut down its IT systems as a precaution after a “cyber incident” late on Tuesday.

Category one elective surgeries were not disrupted.

Category two and three elective procedures will be postponed.

In a statement, Eastern Health said the cyber attack did not compromise patient safety.
