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 Palliative Care

For children with life-limiting conditions, pediatric palliative care at Atlantic Health System Children's Health offers services that minimize suffering and enhance the quality of life of both our patients and their families. Palliative care is often provided alongside life-prolonging care or as a stand-alone treatment.

Our pediatric palliative care services include:

  • Active and compassionate therapy
  • Management of pain and other distressing symptoms
  • Psychosocial and spiritual care
  • Support services for caregivers

We take a holistic approach to our therapies, helping patients and their families fulfill their physical, psychological, social and spiritual aspirations, while remaining sensitive to personal, cultural and religious beliefs.

Our interdisciplinary team of physicians will collaborate with patients, families and caregivers, making them an active part of the care team. We’ll support their hopes for a cure and prolonged life and assist them in making decisions to reach those goals.

Liam’s Room

In addition, Goryeb Children’s Hospital has partnered with Liam’s Room, a New Jersey-based non-profit organization that provides inpatient, comprehensive care rooms and support to palliative care patients and their families. Our Liam’s Room features a comfortable, home-like environment with various amenities, including beds for parents, desks, refrigerators, private bathrooms and child entertainment.
