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.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is used to help those who are recovering from injury or illness regain the functional abilities necessary for daily life and independence, such as grooming and dressing. At Atlantic Rehabilitation, this service is often prescribed for patients following orthopedic, cardiac and breast surgeries, as well as after strokes, amputations, and traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries.

Our occupational therapists provide instruction in how to easily accomplish tasks in new ways, often using special equipment, as well as how to make living environments safer. This helps protect vulnerable joints, prevent further injury and conserve energy.
