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.

Newborn Genetic Screening

Goryeb Children’s Hospital is one of seven state-designated hospitals for the New Jersey state newborn screening program. This program aims for early identification of a variety of serious metabolic conditions. 

Pediatric Genetics and Metabolism at Goryeb Children’s Hospital screens for more than 50 congenital disorders in all newborns born at Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center and Newton Medical Center.  Confirmatory testing will be obtained, and newborns with confirmed diagnoses can continue to be managed within the program.  

Our program coordinates diagnostic options, interventions and family counseling.
