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.

Message from the Chief Nursing Officer

A Message from Carol Jones, MSN, RN, NE-BC, Chief Nursing Officer (CNO), Morristown Medical Center:

As the CNO at Morristown Medical Center, I am proud to share our ongoing commitment to nursing excellence, which along with our shared values of professionalism, respect, involvement and dignity, is an integral part of our culture. 

It’s also largely why we have received Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center four times – a feat achieved by less than one percent of all health care organizations in the world.

Nursing at our hospital has changed drastically since we opened over 125 years ago. Today, we use evidence-based practice and research to not only ensure that our patients receive the best possible care, but also that we remain on the cutting edge of advancements in nursing and medicine. Our nurses also make an incredible contribution to the patient experience as advocates, educators and collaborators.

To ensure that we continue to build upon these achievements, Morristown Medical Center opened the Center for Nursing Innovation and Research (CNIR), where nurses can work to creatively solve problems related to patient care. We also recruit and retain the highest quality nursing professionals and create a pathway for their development and advancement. As a result, our nurses are motivated and inspired to advance their profession through national certifications and professional educational endeavors.

In addition to Magnet, nursing’s contribution is essential to Morristown Medical Center’s many outstanding achievements. Learn more about all of our awards and designations >
