Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement

Effective April 1, 2016, Atlantic Health System hospitals – Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center, Newton Medical Center and Chilton Medical Center – participate in the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model.

Mandated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), this model requires our hospitals to be accountable for the costs and quality of related care for hip or knee replacements and other major leg procedures. Accountability begins at the time of admission through 90 days after the patient leaves the hospital and is known as an “episode of care.”

Depending on our quality and cost performance during the episode, our hospitals will either earn a financial reward or be required to repay Medicare for a portion of the spending above an established target. As a result, patients can expect that we will actively work with physicians, home health agencies, skilled nursing facilities and other providers to ensure they receive the coordinated care they need, while reducing complications and repeat hospital visits.

In addition, this regulation permits our hospitals to engage in financial sharing arrangements with other health care providers, who are called CJR Collaborators. This helps to further improve quality of care and reduce costs. Atlantic Health System’s CJR Collaborators include the orthopedic surgeons at our four participating hospitals, as well as select home health agencies. 

Detailed lists of our CJR Collaborators are organized by hospital below and are updated on a quarterly basis. For more information, please review the CJR consumer fact sheet or contact CJR@atlantichealth.org.
