WATERTOWN — After taking its computer system offline two weeks ago Saturday following a malware attack, Samaritan Medical Center has been able to get some applications back up and running, with an investigation into the incident still underway.

Applications that have been restored include the linear accelerator machine at the Walker Center for Cancer Care, a radiation oncology machine, and Samaritan’s Picture Archive and Communication System, the hospital’s radiology imaging system. Samaritan’s Electronic Medical Records in specialty clinics such as general surgery are now up and running as well, according to Leslie DiStefano, director of communication and public relations at Samaritan.
