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.

Head and Neck Cancer Therapy

Those with head and neck cancer may experience difficulties with swallowing, voice quality, speech and jaw mobility either as a result of the cancer or the methods used to treat it. To help these patients maintain a productive life, Atlantic Rehabilitation provides evaluation, education and therapy before, during and after cancer treatment.

Our head and neck cancer rehabilitation services include:

  • Humidification of the mouth and throat
  • Laryngectomy tube fittings
  • Electrolarynx, or assistive-speaking device, training
  • Pre-laryngectomy education
  • Vocal and respiratory rehabilitation

Often during pre-education, we will loan patients an electrolarynx so they can feel comfortable speaking with the device prior to having surgery. This helps to decrease anxiety and improve the patient’s state-of-mind about their long-term rehabilitation.
