About Medstar

Medstar is Southeast Michigan’s largest and most integrated EMS and mobile health provider, serving more than 190,000 patients annually throughout Bay, 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.
