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.

Pediatric Hospitalist Service

Pediatric hospitalists are pediatricians with expertise in the management and coordination of the complex care of hospitalized infants, children and adolescents. Our pediatric hospitalist service provides care to patients at Goryeb Children’s Hospital at Morristown Medical Center and Goryeb Children's Center at Overlook Medical Center. In addition, the pediatric hospitalists provide care for healthy newborns in the nurseries at both hospitals.

Pediatric Hospitalization

Our team of highly trained general pediatricians coordinates the care of any infant, child or adolescent during their hospitalization. From a child’s hospital admission until his or her discharge, the hospitalist team will:

  • Conduct family-centered and patient-centered rounds daily with nurses, pediatric residents and pharmacists. Include the patient (if able) and family in these rounds to ensure communication between the family and all members of the team.
  • Coordinate all medical and surgical consultations with specialists
  • Maintain close communication with the patient’s primary care physician  
  • Maintain involvement in all quality improvement and patient safety efforts, as well as clinical research projects

Newborns

Our highly regarded maternity services, as well as our neonatal intensive care units, attract patients from the entire tri-state area. For some families, this means having their baby far away from their own pediatrician. The pediatric hospitalist newborn service, led by an experienced general pediatrician and newborn specialist, provides pediatric care for newborns in the first days of life and support for their parents. The newborn team will:

  • Perform a comprehensive review of the maternal and prenatal history
  • Perform a newborn physical examination within 24 hours of birth as well as follow up daily exams
  • Meet with the parents of the newborn daily
  • Coordinate the care or involvement of any specialists or refer the newborn for care in the NICU
  • Coordinate with lactation consultants for breastfeeding mothers
  • Upon discharge, provide parents with information to keep babies healthy and safe
  • Communicate information about the baby’s care to your family’s primary care physician
