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.

Family Advisory Council

At Goryeb Children’s Hospital, the Family Advisory Council promotes patient- and family-centered care by providing resources and guidance to both hospital staff and family members.

The Council aims to forge a comprehensive and compassionate partnership among patients, families and health care professionals through communication and collaboration, ensuring that families always have a voice in their child’s care.

Family advisors are parents of children who have received or are receiving pediatric care at Goryeb Children’s Hospital at Morristown Medical Center. Through their personal narratives, family advisors illustrate how health care professionals can fulfill our patient- and family-centered care mission, values and philosophy. They help health care professionals understand what families most want and need from caregivers in order to collaborate and communicate effectively with them throughout all stages of a child’s care.


To become a Family Advisory Council member, you must be committed to the idea of positive change, be an active listener and pass a background check.
