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.

Patient Registration

Registration is required for all procedures at Atlantic Health System hospitals. In most cases, it is recommended that you call ahead of time to schedule an appointment. Please note that some procedures do not require a scheduled appointment.

If you are making an unscheduled visit to our hospital, please ensure that you have a valid identification (ID), insurance cards and a signed prescription from your physician, including the diagnosis code or ICD-9 code.

If you have a scheduled appointment, please plan to arrive a minimum of 30 minutes prior to you appointment so that you can register with us.
