We have various shifts available including full-time day or night, PRN and part-time.
The New Patient Care Unit at Vail Health
A new addition to the Patient Care Unit features five new, private patient rooms designed to promote a healing environment in a new location of the PCU corridors. With incredible views of the mountains, the rooms offer a quiet, serene atmosphere for improved patient- and family-centered care.
