The Vascular Thoracic Intensive Care Unit is a 12-bed surgical ICU that offers a unique opportunity for RNs beginning their nursing career, those with experience, and those seeking advanced nursing roles in the future, such as NP or CRNA. This unit is one of the two surgical ICUs making up Carilion’s Cardiovascular Institute (CVI).

We seek nurses who want to learn new skill sets and care for high acuity patients in a safe, structured, and supported learning environment. As a team member, you will discover a culture of teamwork, professionalism, mutual respect, and most importantly, a commitment to high-quality patient-centered care.


As part of CVI, this unit will be relocating to the new Crystal Spring Tower by 2025. The Crystal Spring Tower is a 400,000-square-foot expansion to Roanoke Memorial Hospital – the future home of our Cardiovascular Institute and an expanded Emergency Department. This video explains the stages of construction, which began in the summer of 2020.
