For victims of traumatic injury, the time it takes to receive emergency treatment can mean the difference between life and death. For those whose illness requires immediate transport to a major medical facility, receiving a high-level of care en route may also prove critical. CALSTAR exists to fill the need for rapid transport of patients that frequently can only be provided by an air ambulance.
With ten bases located throughout the state, CALSTAR offers air medical services from Ukiah to Santa Barbara, and from the San Francisco Bay Area to Northern Nevada. CALSTAR's service covers vast areas of wilderness and population-dense urban communities with the same level of commitment and responsiveness.
In 2016, CALSTAR announced its merger with REACH Air Medical Services, another air ambulance provider headquartered in California. The agreement placed CALSTAR within the same corporate holding company as REACH (“REACH Medical Holdings LLC”). Combined, the two organizations form the largest statewide network of air ambulance providers.
CALSTAR participates in The AirMedCare Network (AMCN), the largest air ambulance membership network in the nation with more than 2.5 million members. The AirMedCare Network membership program offers service from leading air ambulance providers in 32 states from more than 260 airbase locations. For more information, visit www.airmedcarenetwork.com.
