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.

Cancer Screening and Early Detection

Early detection of cancer can save lives. That's why Atlantic Health System Cancer Care participates in the New Jersey Cancer Education and Early Detection (NJCEED) programs in Morris, Passaic and Sussex counties, which help patients find information about free and reduced cost services.


NJCEED provides comprehensive outreach, education and screening services for breast, cervical, colorectal and prostate cancers. In addition, they offer case management, navigation, tracking, follow-up care and facilitation into treatment. These services are free or at reduced costs for qualifying Morris County residents, who are 18 year or older without insurance.

Cancer Education Programs

In addition, Atlantic Health System Cancer Care offers a variety of cancer related educational programs for breast, colorectal, prostate, skin, oral, and lung cancers regarding prevention and early detection, treatment and survivorship issues. Through the generosity of community partners and private donations, we are able to offer additional education and outreach to underserved communities, as well as free screening exams, including mammography.

Cancer screening services may vary by location.
