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 Program for Children

Goryeb Children's Hospital's Kid-Fit for children ages 5 through 11 works with the patient’s family to identify healthy changes that can be promoted at home. Our program uses state-of-the-art technology that can assess body composition and body fat percentage.

We use this information, along with evaluations of the child’s eating habits and physical activity behaviors, to develop a treatment plan that’s tailored to individual needs. Exercise recommendations, nutrition planning, sleep  assessments and counseling may be prescribed.

After the initial consultation, our exercise physiologist and registered dietician meet with patients on a monthly basis to assess progress and review goals. The treatment plan is adjusted or new treatments are prescribed, as needed, to ensure long-term success and a healthier lifestyle. 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.

There is a minimal fee for each lifestyle assessment and financial assistance may be available.
