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.

Cardiac Genetic Counseling & Screening

Patients who want to better understand their risk for inherited cardiac arrhythmias or irregular heartbeats can turn to Atlantic Health System’s Comprehensive Inherited Arrhythmia Program. We are the only program in the state that uses the latest genomic technology to assist in diagnosing, monitoring and treating cardiac arrhythmias.

Those enrolled in the program first meet with one of our genetic counselors, who will gather the family history information. This is followed by an evaluation with an electrophysiologist and our director of genomic medicine. Patients are then given a summary plan for further diagnosis, treatment and follow-up.

Follow-up testing may include a more detailed electrophysiology exam, stress tests, Holter monitoring or electrocardiograms (EKG). In more severe cases, patients may be referred to Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute to discuss if a pacemaker would be appropriate.
