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.

Rheumatic and Autoimmune Diseases

At Atlantic Health System, we offer specialized programs that diagnose, treat and manage rheumatic and autoimmune diseases. Our programs also work closely with other health care professionals in assisting patients who require additional pain management, surgery or other services to treat their conditions.

Rheumatic Diseases

Rheumatic diseases are a group of more than 100 disorders that cause arthritis and other painful conditions of the muscles, bones and other tissues. While more than half of all people aged 65 and older have some form of arthritis, these conditions can affect young and old alike – from 2 to 92. Some rheumatic diseases are very serious, and they’re often difficult to diagnose and treat, but many appear in mild form and respond extremely well to  treatment.

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases refer to problems with the immune system’s reactions to an individual’s own tissues. In an autoimmune reaction, antibodies or immune cells can attack the body’s own healthy tissues by mistake, causing damage or loss of function. Autoimmune diseases can affect almost any part of the body, including the heart, brain, nerves, muscles, skin, eyes, joints, lungs, kidneys, glands, the digestive tract and blood vessels. Our highly trained medical teams work together so patients can live their lives to the fullest. Physician services are provided through Atlantic Medical Group >
