height

Here is my best explanation:

'peak' is the definition.

('height' can be a synonym of 'peak')

'figure attending hospital' is the subsidiary indication.

'figure' becomes 'eight' (I've seen this in other clues**).

'attending' means one lot of letters go next to another.

'hospital' becomes 'h'.

'eight' put after 'h' is 'height'.
