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.

Pediatric Eating Disorders

Eating disorders, like anorexia and bulimia, are serious illnesses that can result in  both medical and psychological complications. Prompt treatment is essential, but parents are often uncertain if their child has an eating disorder and don’t know where to turn for help. Learn more about eating disorder warning signs >

The good news is that with the proper care, full recovery from these conditions is possible and the Pediatric Eating Disorders Center at Atlantic Health System Children's Health can help. Our program is the only one in New Jersey that is exclusive to children ages 8 to 12 and adolescents ages 13 to 21 and includes parents in all aspects of care from the earliest stages of diagnosis through treatment.
