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.

Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disease

A stroke, sometimes referred to as a “brain attack,” is a condition where blood flow is blocked to a part of the brain, resulting in cell death due to lack of oxygen. If enough brain cells are destroyed, the patient may experience long-term side effects, such as loss of memory and muscle control.
