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.

Faith Community Nurse Networks

Atlantic Health System’s Faith Community Nurse Network recruits, trains and supports volunteer and paid nurses to help congregants make informed personal health decisions.

The typical responsibilities of a faith community nurse include:

  • Identifying congregation health needs and issues
  • Educating the congregation about healthy lifestyles, risk-reducing behaviors, developmental needs, preventive self-care and spiritual practices for health and healing
  • Assisting congregants through medical issues including diagnosis, treatments and referrals
  • Acting as a liaison and advocate for congregants admitted to the hospital
  • Making home, hospital and nursing home visits as needed
  • Recruiting and coordinating volunteers from the congregation to serve in various health ministries
  • Obtaining health resources from Atlantic Health System as necessary
  • Helping the congregation with access to community resources and agencies

All of our services are provided in accordance with the values, beliefs and practices of the congregation.

Nurses in our program will also have access to quarterly networking meetings that offer CEU credit and opportunities to share best practices.
