CALSTAR 2 provides emergency medical services to six counties, including Santa Clara, Merced, San Benito, Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Luis Obispo. Our transports originate from both the 911 emergency response system and requests for interfacility transports to specialty care centers.
For trauma victims, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, Stanford University Hospital, San Francisco General Hospital & Trauma Center, Regional Medical Center of San Jose, and Kaiser regularly serve as our primary delivery destinations.
ELIGIBILITY: Professionals requesting this service for injured individuals are ambulance, police, and fire crews who dispatch CALSTAR, complementing the work of the Emergency Medical Services system.
