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.

Intensive Outpatient and Acute Partial Hospitalization Programs

Sometimes hospitalization is not necessary or no longer required, but outpatient services may be too limited for a patient’s needs. For these individuals, Atlantic Behavioral Health offers an acute partial hospitalization program and intensive outpatient programs that tailor treatment to each patient’s level of functioning.

Intensive Outpatient Programs

Group-based psycho-education and therapy is provided during a three-hour period, three to five days a week. Because patients in our program return home after treatment sessions, they can more quickly begin the transition to everyday living situations and challenges. Intensive outpatient programs are available at Atlantic Rehabilitation, Newton Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center outpatient services. In addition, Hackettstown Medical Center offers an intensive outpatient program specifically for those with drug and alcohol issues.

Acute Partial Hospitalization Program

During sessions of approximately five to six hours per day, three to five days per week, we provide assessment; group, individual and family therapy; education; medication management; and therapeutic activities. Our staff of psychiatrists and licensed therapists will help patients improve their daily functioning, better manage their psychiatric disorders and related issues, and work towards recovery. Acute partial hospitalization is available at Newton Medical Center.
