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.

Emergency Alert, Location Services & Telephone Reassurance

Emergency alert systems are devices, often in the form of a pendant or wrist unit, that can connect people to immediate help. They are ideal for individuals who live alone, are at risk for falling, or have serious medical concerns. Many of these services are privately paid; however, there are some community programs available to those with limited resources or who live in certain counties or towns.

For those with cognitive impairments, wandering or getting lost in familiar places can be a serious concern. Location systems help individuals with cognitive impairments stay safe and give their loved ones peace of mind.


Telephone Reassurance Services

Telephone reassurance services have volunteers who place daily or regular phone calls to home-bound seniors. They offer friendly conversation as well as a routine check-in for safety. Most programs also have procedures in place to engage help should the recipient not answer the phone.
