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 Hospitalization

Inpatient mental health programs are designed to help stabilize those with mental illnesses. At Atlantic Behavioral Health, we encourage personal empowerment among our hospitalized patients through self-awareness and education.

Each adult admitted to our program receives a medical evaluation by our team of professionals, which includes on-site psychiatrists, nurses and licensed social workers.

Treatment may consist of group psychotherapy, individual and family counseling, activities therapy and medication management. With the patient’s consent, we strongly recommend involvement by family members throughout all stages of care.

After a successful treatment, patients can return to the care of their psychiatrist or clinician and when necessary, may be referred to an intensive outpatient program.

Inpatient mental health services are available at the Head Family Inpatient Psychiatric and Behavioral Health Center at Morristown Medical Center, as well as Newton Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center.
