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.

A new alternative to surgery for heart patients

Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute at Morristown Medical Center is the only facility in New Jersey to offer the groundbreaking, minimally invasive CoreValve, a transcatheter valve implant for patients with severe aortic valve stenosis and MitraClip surgery for patients with severe mitral valve leakage.

Our state-of-the-art facility features two specially designed hybrid operating suites that can be used for both complex catheter procedures and conventional open-heart and vascular surgical procedures. Minimally invasive surgery enables patients to undergo advanced cardiovascular repair procedures with as little as one overnight stay; occasionally patients may even be ready to leave the hospital the same day.

We have pioneered advanced techniques, such as minimally invasive surgery for atrial septal heart defects. Our world-renowned team of cardiac specialists uses a wide range of innovative devices to replace failing heart valves, which can offer patients the best option for success.
