We offer a competitive compensation package and the ability to put your nursing degree to work in a range of locations throughout the hospital, including:
Cardiac Catheterization Lab
In our cardiac catheterization lab, you’ll be able to work alongside some of the best cardiac specialists in the nation. This lab contains three state-of-the-art procedure rooms in addition to a new cardiac advanced procedures suite. Wheeling Hospital was named as only the 14th US hospital to become an accredited Mission: Lifeline Heart Attack Receiving Center for its excellent treatment of the most severe type of heart attack. The accreditation was jointly granted by the American Heart Association and the Society of Chest Pain Centers.
In addition to diagnostic caths and interventional cardiology, our cath lab also performs transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), transcaval TAVR, WATCHMAN implantation, and MitraClip therapy along with a wide variety of electrophysiology studies and procedures.
Cardiovascular Step Down Unit
Our 22-bed, inpatient step down unit provides direct care for young adults to geriatric patients after cardiac, thoracic, and vascular surgery. We also care for patients with other heart-related conditions that require close observation and monitoring.
Emergency Trauma Services
Our 34-bed Level II Trauma Center (the region’s only Level II facility) was opened in 2012 and provides state-of-the-art technology to care for and monitor patients experiencing trauma or medical emergencies including chest pain, stroke, or severe bleeding.
Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
In our 22-bed ICU, we care for patients of all age ranges requiring close observation with high-tech monitoring equipment who are experiencing trauma, congestive heart failure, pneumonia, sepsis, or undergoing procedures like neurosurgery or a coronary artery bypass graft.
Intermediate Care Unit (IMU)
We treat patients in this 28-bed unit who are experiencing chest pain, congestive heart failure, and other cardiac conditions, or are pre/post-heart catheterization, pre-coronary artery bypass graft as well as other types of cardiac issues requiring closer observation, telemetry, or various vasoactive intravenous (IV) drips. Patients transferring out of critical care units also often come to the IMU.
Medical/Surgical Unit (4th Floor)
On the fourth floor of the hospital, we operate a 52-bed inpatient medical/surgical unit providing care for orthopedics, neurology/neurosurgery, general surgery, and dialysis.
Medical/Surgical Unit (5th Floor)
On the fifth floor of the hospital, we offer an additional 42-bed medical and 22-bed surgical unit for patients who have been diagnosed with gastrointestinal, pulmonary, or low-risk cardiac disorders. Some patients are on telemetry, but vasoactive IV drips are not administered on this unit. We receive admissions from the emergency room, outside facilities, physician offices, and the ICU.
Our 24-bed, inpatient oncology unit treats patients with a cancer diagnosis who may be receiving a combination of treatments, such as radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or palliative system control.
We treat medical and surgical patients from infancy to 18 years old in our 22-bed inpatient pediatric and special procedure unit. Additional services include special procedures for outpatients who may need IV antibiotics, blood administration, chemotherapy, central venous catheter care, and dressing changes.
