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.

Cerebrovascular Disease Diagnostic and Treatment Options

Cerebrovascular disease is a group of disorders affecting the blood vessels in the brain. In addition to stroke, these include transient ischemic attacks (TIAs), intracerebral hemorrhage, subarachnoid hemorrhage, intracranial aneurysms, and arteriovenous malformations.

Kyle Chapple, M.D., Discusses Brain Aneurysms

Neurologists at the stroke centers of Atlantic Health System Neuroscience can rapidly assess and treat patients with any of these cerebrovascular conditions.

If an artery is blocked, we can may use intravenous alteplase, otherwise known as the “clot busting” drug, which can be effective if administered within the first three hours.  

For patients who have internal bleeding of the brain due to an aneurysm or arteriovenous malformation, we can perform endovascular procedures, which allow our neurosurgeons to operate without performing a craniotomy or opening of the skull. This results in less discomfort and blood loss and shorter hospital stays for the patient.
