Medstar is Southeast Michigan’s largest and most integrated EMS and mobile health provider, serving more than 190,000 patients annually throughout Bay, Clinton, Eaton, Genesee, Ingham, Lapeer, Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne counties. Originally created in 1993 by two local hospitals committed to providing quality EMS for their communities, our stakeholder health systems have now grown to include Ascension-Michigan, Henry Ford Health System, and the McLaren Healthcare Corporation.
Our integration with the physicians, nurses, and clinical leaders within our stakeholder health systems combined with our non-profit mission allows us to focus on advancing emergency care in the communities we serve, as well as integrated mobile health (community paramedic), critical care transport, and ambulatory transportation services throughout our stakeholder health systems, as well as healthcare facilities throughout lower Michigan.
We are committed to providing the communities we serve with the best personnel, the most clinically advanced patient care, and the best and safest equipment available. We believe in external validation of all quality metrics and are committed to providing our patients, personnel, community partners, and healthcare stakeholders with data and service metric transparency and clinical integration.
In 2019, Medstar invested $8.7 million to advance the care and service that we provide to the patients, communities, and facilities who entrust us with their care.
The Medstar team provides care to more 911 patients in Southeast Michigan than any other agency. Through our 911 EMS services, Mobile Health Paramedic program, air medical services, on-site paramedic leasing, critical care, and interfacility transport teams, Medstar cares for a patient in Michigan every four minutes.
With our clinical care providers focused on one patient at a time, Medstar serves more than 190,000 patients annually throughout Bay, Clinton, Eaton, Genesee, Ingham, Lapeer, Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne counties.
