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 Units

Every specialist in the Pediatric Unit at Goryeb Children’s Hospital and Goryeb Children's Center provides superior care in a warm, compassionate and patient- and family-centered environment. We know that the hospitalization of a child is one of the most difficult things a family ever experiences, and we are dedicated to supporting you during this stressful time.

Your child may have a roommate, unless your physician specifies otherwise for medical reasons. When we assign a roommate, we take your child’s age, sex and diagnosis into consideration. Children who need to be isolated because of their illnesses have first priority for a single room.

We also provide cribs for infants and toddlers. Even if your toddler is accustomed to a large bed at home, we may put your child in a crib for safety.

The bathroom in the patient room is for the patient's use only. We provide a lavatory, shower, washer and dryer for parents -- please ask a staff member for assistance. A visitor’s lounge with vending machines is located at the end of the hallway, and a TV and VCR/DVD player are available in every room. Age-appropriate toys, video game systems and DVD/videos are available in the unit playroom.
