Medstar, Michigan’s largest EMS and mobile healthcare provider, officially opened its new deployment center in Genesee County. The location is at 6210 Lehman Drive in Mundy Township. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Thursday, Mar 10, 2022
Medstar’s new state-of-the-art, 12,400 square foot clinical deployment center includes an EMS shift readiness area, EMT and paramedic education facility, public CPR and AED first aid training space, fleet maintenance, and an expanded communications center. The facility will enhance services throughout lower Mid-Michigan with 55 ambulances and 150 employees.
Welcome remarks before the ribbon-cutting were given by our CEO Kolby Miller, Mundy Township Supervisor Tonya Ketzler, Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson, and Fenton Township Fire Chief Ryan Volz. The Grand Blanc Chamber, Flint and Genesee Chamber, Grand Blanc Rotary, local public safety and healthcare leaders, and members of the Medstar team also joined in officially opening the new deployment center.
The launch of the new facility coincided with awarding two AEDs to the Metro Police Authority and Gaines Township Fire Department. The AEDs were purchased through Medstar’s Shock and Save Campaign. They represent the first of many to be provided and installed throughout our service area.
“This innovative facility will advance the reliability and clinical performance of Medstar’s care and service throughout the communities and healthcare facilities we serve in Genesee County,” said Kolby Miller, Medstar CEO. “As the needs of the Genesee County community continue to grow, so does Medstar’s commitment. We needed a larger facility to keep up with the increasing demand and talent recruitment. The new site solidifies our ongoing commitment to providing quality care for our patients and team members.”
Medstar is Michigan’s most integrated 911 EMS and mobile healthcare provider, serving more than 190,000 patients annually throughout lower Michigan. Created in 1993 by two local hospitals committed to quality EMS, the nonprofit agency serves communities in nine counties.
