Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center to join Mayo Clinic Care Network

Show Low, Ariz.-based Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center is the latest organization to join the Mayo Clinic Care Network, a network of health systems and hospitals originally created by the Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic.

Summit Healthcare will remain an independent entity, but will have access to Mayo Clinic providers, resources and expertise. Summit Healthcare providers will also be able to contribute to the Clinic's extensive library of patient education materials and view archived presentations and lectures by Mayo Clinic physicians and researchers.

"Summit Healthcare is honored to become a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network," said Ron McArthur, CEO of Summit Healthcare. "Our mission is: 'trusted to deliver exceptional, compassionate care, close to home,' and this collaboration with Mayo Clinic allows us to achieve that mission by enhancing the healthcare services we already have."

"This relationship is based on our fundamental and shared belief that the needs of the patient come first," says Keith Cannon, MD, medical director of the Southwest region of the Mayo Clinic Care Network. "We look forward to working with Summit Healthcare to find new and innovative ways that will enhance that care."
