I can't seem to find the answer to this question. Does showcase work count towards Health weeks?

Short answer: No. 

Long Answer: Health weeks are accumulated through contracts, where the Producer contributes X amount of money into the Health Fund on your behalf for each week worked.  The Showcase Code allows small-time productions to use Equity members without compensation, except travel stipend.  Since the producer of the Showcase isn't putting money into the Health fund for you, it doesn't count for weeks.
