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.

Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-limiting, inherited condition that causes thick, sticky fluid to collect in the lungs. Patients with this disease may experience cough, increased mucus and nasal congestion, sinus pain and recurrent pneumonia.

At the Gunnar H. Esiason Cystic Fibrosis Center, part of the Atlantic Respiratory Institute, we provide early diagnosis and routine monitoring of CF, as well as aggressive pulmonary treatments to improve quality of life.

Diagnostic Tests for Cystic Fibrosis

Patients in our program may receive chest X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans and pulmonary function tests, or spirometry, to determine the presence of CF and the extent to which it has affected their respiratory system.

Cystic Fibrosis Treatment

The goal of most treatment plans is to manage symptoms and slow the progression of the disease. Antibiotics, inhaled medicines and oxygen therapy are often prescribed.

Pediatric Transition Program

Pediatric CF patients from Goryeb Children’s Hospital’s Respiratory Center for Children are seamlessly transferred to our adult program once they come of age. Both programs are nationally accredited by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
