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.

Gynecologic Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive alternative for open hysterectomies and other gynecological procedures typically associated with large incisions and long recovery times. At Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center and Chilton Medical Center, our teams of specialized surgeons use the da Vinci® surgical system to treat gynecologic conditions, such as: 

In addition, Morristown and Overlook medical centers offer robotic surgery for the treatment of cervical cancer, endometrial cancer and uterine cancer.

Gynecologic robotic surgeries available at Morristown, Overlook and Chilton medical centers:

  • Bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy
  • Hysterectomy, including both radical and supracervical hysterectomy
  • Myomectomy
  • Ovarian cystectomy
  • Sacrocolpopexy
