Also, in my previous job, where i was in a hospital, the PACS network was cut from outside access. And from most of the other inner networks. Its POSSIBLE to hack it from outside, but the difficulty raises a lot. With the level of security most hospitals have (both IT and on-premise), you would probably deal with it faster, by going on the spot.
