SUMMIT HEALTHCARE REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER - SHOW LOW, AZ

Submitted by:Cristi Starkel, n/a
This facility is now called Summit Healthcare. The name changed approximately a year and a half ago. I am a resident of the area and have been for 4 years. In addition, the hospital has a new wing added to it. I do not know the specifics of it, but I do know the information should be updated.
Thanks

I heard that we can get aro-vac insurance, to cover any emergency trips we have to make. Is this true.
