Medstar Ambulance of Mendocino County Inc, a non-profit community service, was formed in 2013 to bring affordable, reliable emergency medical care to our community. Medstar purchased Ukiah Ambulance and assumed its service area, including Ukiah, Hopland, Redwood Valley/Calpella and Potter Valley.
Advanced Life Support (ALS) ambulances are available 24/7 in Ukiah and Redwood Valley for emergencies and provide back-up to primary service providers in Anderson Valley and Willits. Medstar has also formed partnerships with providers in outlying areas to augment existing Basic Life Support (BLS) with a Medstar paramedic in an effort to increase access to ALS in more rural parts of the county.
Furthermore, when an emergency occurs, we believe help shouldn't come with a financial burden. Our ambulatory and ambulance services are available to everyone, regardless of ability to pay. And our membership program is available to all residents of our service area, regardless of health care coverage.
Here are some highlights:
- Membership plans start at just $45 per year
- Group memberships are available and make a great employer-provided benefit
- Hardship program will, upon review, allow Medstar to reduce or eliminate any cost for service
