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.

Morbid obesity is defined as more than 100 pounds overweight and/or suffering from obesity-related health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, sleep apnea, joint disease or infertility. For those people, often the safest and most effective way to achieve substantial long-term weight loss is through a comprehensive approach that includes medical, psychological, nutritional, surgical, diet and exercise solutions.
