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.

NICHE Program

Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE) is a national organization designed to improve the quality of care for older adult patients and their families. Hospitals achieve NICHE designation by educating their nurses and staff in geriatric treatment methods that result in better outcomes.

At Atlantic Health System, several of our hospitals have senior programs recognized by NICHE. Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center and Chilton Medical Center have all received “Exemplar” status – the highest designation achievable.

NICHE helps our hospitals:

  • Address issues specific to older adults
  • Improve patient satisfaction
  • Support families in their role as caregivers
