Upon approval for admission, an admission date and time are coordinated between Acuity Specialty Hospital, the referral source, the referring physician, the patient and/or family. Communication is arranged between the referring physician and the Acuity Specialty Hospital attending Physician. There are also participating Physician Specialty groups providing care at Acuity Specialty Hospital. AHNJ operates within AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center’s Atlantic City Campus, on the newly renovated 5th floor of the Wellness and Friendship Pavilion. Acuity Specialty Hospital of New Jersey is a 30-bed facility that operates as a separate and distinct “hospital-within-a hospital” with its own leadership team, employees, and physician staff. All rooms are single occupied rooms. Each patient is seen daily by an attending Physician and all patient’s care will be coordinated by a multidisciplinary team including Specialty Physicians. Each patient will be assigned a Case Manager upon admission. Within 24-48 hours, your Case Manager will coordinate a family meeting to discuss the plan and goals of care.
It is helpful to have the following information available upon admission:
- Personal Identification card(s)
- Insurance cards or Medicare cards
- Living will, power of attorney or durable power of attorney if applicable
- Copy of an organ donation request card if applicable
We strongly suggest you leave valuables at home. The hospital is not responsible for valuables or money kept in your room.
There are no restrictions on visiting hours at Acuity. We do ask that there are only 2 visitors at one time due to space restrictions. However, one family member or friend is allowed to stay with the patient overnight for as long as requested and approved.
