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: Laura's Story

Laura A. was ecstatic to be pregnant with twins in 2016. As she bought tiny baby clothes and set up a nursery, she also planned to give birth at Overlook Medical Center, where she herself had been born. Laura liked that Overlook is a designated Baby-Friendly hospital and she also knew that Overlook has a state-designed neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)   , just in case everything didn’t go as planned.

Laura’s pregnancy went smoothly until she reached about 30 weeks, when she woke up in bed to find that her water had broken. She headed straight for Overlook and was put on bed rest to prevent infection.

Three weeks later, Laura went into labor and gave birth to her tiny but healthy twins, Amelia and Theodore. The twins were cared for in the NICU at Overlook for a couple of weeks, then were able to go home with Laura and her husband. “I would definitely recommend Overlook Medical Center to any of my friends who were expecting babies,” says Laura. “I’m confident that they would be really happy with the care that they received.”
