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.

How to Register for Child Birth

Before arriving at an Atlantic Health System maternity center, you must obtain a registration packet from your physician or the hospital, complete the form and send it in as soon as possible. Each time you plan to deliver a baby, you need to re-register.

If you would like to obtain newborn metabolic screening in addition to what is required by the State of New Jersey, you will also need to contact a private company to make arrangements in advance. Your registration packet includes information on the testing, for which there is an additional fee. You must send the signed form back with the registration that confirms you are aware that additional testing is available for a fee through private companies.

When you return your registration information, please include:

  • Your completed registration form
  • A copy of your insurance
  • A copy of a form of ID (driver's license)
  • A signed “Acknowledgement of Receipt of Notice of Availability of Supplemental Screening“ form

A notice of privacy and an optional advanced directive form will be provided at labor and delivery.
