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.

Your Child's Visit

The exceptional quality of care provided at Goryeb Children’s Hospital at Morristown Medical Center and Goryeb Children's Center at Overlook Medical Center  is designed to make your child's hospital visit the best it can possibly be. Family involvement in every child’s diagnosis and treatment is key to the child’s healing process.

All of our staff – from pediatric physicians and nurses to child life specialists and on-site teachers – embrace the philosophy of patient- and family-centered care. We understand that parents and family members provide children with the strength and courage to face medical situations that can be difficult and complicated. Family members also offer invaluable information and insight, enhancing the skill with which our experts approach each child’s individual needs.

Our physicians, nurses, patient services representatives, counselors and trained volunteers will work in close partnership with you, communicating regularly and openly, to guarantee that your child’s needs are always addressed. We honor the preferences, needs and values of every family, and we are committed to designing treatment plans that reflect your beliefs and traditions.
