I work in sicu at Northwest medical center in Springdale, Ar. I don't believe that any hospital in this area has a cv icu, but each of the three major area hospitals has a cvor with a good deal of cabgs, avrs, mrvs, etc which go to sicu. In our sicu we get anywhrrr from 2 to 5 hearts a week--so probably nothing like a cvicu in a large hospital. Back in the fall we were actually getting about 2 a day, so i guess it varies. You'll hear the typical complaints that i think are typical for small to medium sized hospitals like low pay and such, but i love the nw arkansas area so i don't mind. Cost of living is good, beautiful state parks if you like the outdoors. Feel free to drop me a message if you have any questions about the area.
