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.

Critical Care Medicine for Respiratory Illness

Whether it’s an advanced case of pneumonia or a severe asthma attack, there are times where patients with respiratory illnesses many need to be hospitalized. At Atlantic Health System, our intensive care units (ICU) are ready to assist these individuals 24/7 with multidisciplinary care designed to improve outcomes and survival rates.

We use mechanical ventilation, hemodynamic monitoring and support, aggressive resuscitation and other forms of critical care intervention, when necessary. Throughout the treatment process, our compassionate staff keeps family members informed of the patient’s status.
