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.

Heart Care Patient Stories

Through Atlantic Health System Heart Care our expert treatment and comprehensive services are designed to make your visit the best it can possibly be. See what some of our recent cardiac patients had to say:


For the past three months I’ve spent time reflecting on my life and found it was impossible to remember a time when I was surrounded by more caring, professional, concerned, instructive, patient and especially nice people."

Eleanor Ann Lipkin, Cardiac Health Center of Morristown Medical Center patient

“The fact that your community health personnel would come out – even on a weekend – speaks well of their commitment to women’s health. They are all to be applauded.” – Davida Isaacson, Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute at  Overlook Medical Center’s Women’s Heart Awareness Program participant

“Sometimes in life we just get lucky – and fortunate – and blessed! And I am so thankful that my unexpected heart problems were able to be mitigated very successfully by the excellent staff and doctors at Morristown Medical Center and equally important, by the cardiac health center staff that have provided such high level professional care for the past two and a half months.” – David Pease, patient at Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute at Morristown Medical Center
