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.

Blood Transfusions

Some surgeries may require blood transfusions. Your surgeon at Atlantic Health System will discuss this possibility with you. Occasionally, you may be able to donate your own blood and have it stored for your surgery. This is usually done three to four weeks prior to surgery. Your surgeon's office will instruct you how to make these appointments.

Please note that all blood and blood products are routinely screened for HIV (AIDS virus) and other contagious diseases.
