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.

Inpatient Geriatric Psychiatry

Inpatient Geriatric PsychiatryGeriatric psychiatry is designed to address the specific difficulties faced by older adults, including higher incidences of depression, isolation and dependence on other family members. At Atlantic Behavioral Health, we provide services to improve the health and restore the quality of life of geriatric patients.

Our staff of psychiatrists, nurses and social workers can evaluate older adults to determine if they are suffering from psychosis, depression, geriatric dementia, anxiety, delirium and other cognitive conditions or mood disturbances. Family members are invited to join the evaluations to determine if the patient is at risk for injury as a result of their immediate surroundings.

Inpatient geriatric psychiatry services are available at Morristown Medical Center, Newton Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center.
