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.

Moments That Matter: Haley's Story

Watch Haley’s story on nyjets.com, airing March 31 on CBS.

It’s a fact that when patients who are experiencing cardiac arrest or other heart issues receive prompt medical attention and are taken to a hospital, they are more likely to survive and have fewer long-term complications. For instance, take Haley B., who was saved by first responders using an automated external defibrillator (AED) and then successfully treated at Morristown Medical Center.

Moments That Matter: Haley’s Story

When she was 29, Haley unexpectedly went into cardiac arrest due to a rare, previously-undiagnosed heart arrhythmia. Her fiancée immediately administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and called the local police. Upon arrival, they used an AED, which was provided in part by a generous donation from the Newton Medical Center Foundation, to stabilize Haley’s heartbeat. She was then transported to Morristown Medical Center, where she underwent surgery and received an internal  defibrillator.
