Show Low’s medical infrastructure is significant.
Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center
is a private, not-for-profit regional facility with over 100
licensed beds. The hospital features an outstanding physician staff representing
of medical specialties including cardiology, obstetrics, oncology,
physical therapy, diagnostic imaging and surgical services.
Summit Healthcare acquired a state-of-the-art "LightSpeed® VCT
diagnostic system in 2007. This device is the world’s first Volume Computed
Tomography (VCT) system. Summit Healthcare was also the first hospital in
Arizona to acquire the new state-of-the-art D-SPECT Cardiac Imaging System.
This new gamma camera system has 10 times the sensitivity and twice the
resolution of older systems and it requires patients to lie still for only two
to four minutes--a much shorter timeframe than older devices.
The five-story patient tower provides an ICU unit,
Medical/Surgical unit, women's health unit, an observation nursery, private
rooms and space for future expansion.
