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.

Family- Based Treatment

Family-Based Treatment (FBT), also known as the Maudsley Method, is an outpatient form of treatment for medically-stable patients with eating disorders that puts parents in charge of nourishing their child, while a therapist provides coaching and support. Physician services are provided by Atlantic Medical Group and are on staff at Goryeb Children's Hospital.

Pediatric Eating Disorders at Atlantic Health System Children's Health is one of the only programs in the state that uses FBT in all levels of care – outpatient, intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization.  All of our staff is trained in FBT, and most of our therapists are certified in FBT by the Training Institute for Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders.

Generous Sponsors

Our eating disorders program was developed by and is supported through generous donations from individuals, families and organizations concerned with the prevention and treatment of eating disorders.
