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.

Kid- Fit Med

Some children with obesity cannot achieve a healthy weight through home-based lifestyle changes alone. To meet their needs, Goryeb Children’s Hospital offers a six-month, medically-supervised weight loss program called Kid-Fit Med. It is available to children ages 5 to 18 who have a body mass index (BMI) greater than the 95th percentile for their age or have a lower BMI with weight-associated health problems.

Kid-Fit Med focuses on medically managing the child’s obesity and any associated conditions, such as heart disease or diabetes. Our individualized treatment plans may also include nutritional counseling, physical activity and psychosocial assessments to help achieve successful and long-term weight loss.

The Kid-Fit Med team – which consists of physicians, nurse practitioners, registered dieticians, a social worker and an exercise physiologist – meets with patients on a monthly basis to track their progress and make adjustments to their treatment plan. This is done with the aid of state-of-the-art technology that can assess body composition and body fat percentage.

The cost of our program varies based on insurance coverage. Patients should always check with their individual carriers to determine our participation with their plan and authorization requirements. Financial assistance may be available.

As part of Atlantic Health System Children’s Health, physician services are provided through Atlantic Medical Group and are on staff at Goryeb Children’s Hospital.
