Summit Healthcare Introduces Tele-ICU Care to Northeast Arizona

Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center of Show Low, Arizona launched tele-ICU care in partnership with Advanced ICU Care on October 4. The critical care services provided by Advanced ICU Care physicians and nurses complement the care provided by Summit teams at the bedside to ensure 24/7 intensivist coverage for Summit ICU patients. This additional critical care support is proven to improve patient outcomes and reduce average ICU stays.

“Advanced ICU Care’s continuous oversight of our ICU patients is a great addition to our hospital. Our doctors sleep better at night knowing that Advanced ICU Care is continually monitoring their patients when they aren’t there,” said Ron McArthur, CEO.

“This program brings 24/7/365 critical care expertise directly to our patients, along with evidence-based practices, to augment the high-quality care our physicians and nurses provide,” said Alan DeWitt, CMO of Summit Healthcare. “This is yet another example of how we deliver the highest standards in patient care and safety.”
