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.

Coronary Bypass Surgery

During coronary bypass surgery, heart surgeons at Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute at Morristown Medical Center, part of Atlantic Health System Heart Care, use a blood vessel from a patient’s leg, arm or inner chest to bypass an obstruction in a coronary artery, improving blood flow to the heart. A patient may undergo a single, double, triple or quadruple bypass, depending on the number of arteries that are blocked. Sometimes coronary bypass surgery can be performed with minimally invasive techniques, making only small incisions in the chest, resulting in less risk and trauma and faster recovery.
