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.

Telestroke

The faster a stroke is diagnosed, the sooner treatment can begin, thus preserving more of the patient’s brain function. That’s why Atlantic Health System Neuroscience uses a telestroke robot that combines the latest in telemedicine technology with state-of-the-art navigation to rapidly diagnose potential stroke patients.

Through the robotically-controlled camera and monitor system, stroke neurologists can remotely see and communicate with the patient and his or her family, other physicians, the patient’s nurse and emergency department staff. They can also assess medical imaging to help speed the diagnostic process and allow for vascular interventions.

The telestroke robot is used in the emergency departments at Chilton Medical Center, Hackettstown Medical Center, Morristown Medical Center, Newton Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center – Union Campus.
