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 a variety 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 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. 

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.
