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.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehabilitation is specifically-designed to help patients with lung disorders – including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pulmonary fibrosis, asthma, and lung cancer – reduce symptoms, decrease disability and improve participation in daily living activities.

Atlantic Respiratory Institute’s pulmonary rehabilitation services consist of:

  • Exercises utilizing tread mills, stationary bicycles and free weights
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Education on lung disease and how to manage it
  • Energy-conserving techniques
  • Breathing strategies
  • Psychological counseling and group support

Our team of pulmonologists, respiratory therapists, nurses, dieticians and social workers works with patients to develop a plan customized to individual needs and abilities. Session durations and exercise intensity are gradually increased over time until significantly more activity can be accomplished with less shortness of breath. After pulmonary rehabilitation is completed, we typically recommend a specialized pulmonary exercise program to maintain physical fitness levels.

Insurance coverage for pulmonary rehabilitation varies, but most insurance plans cover at least part of the program.
