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.

Geriatric Emergency Services

At Morristown Medical Center, we understand that older adults have unique needs when it comes to medical emergencies. That’s why we offer specialized services for these patients in the Medicines Company Geriatric Emergency Department.

Available features include eight private rooms large enough for wheelchair access, a bathroom and seating for family members. What’s more, patient beds are equipped with comfortable mattresses that have weight-distribution systems designed to lessen the pressure on sensitive skin.

Our team, which includes a geriatric nurse practitioner, a dedicated social worker and pharmacist, is specially-trained in senior health.
