CALSTAR 5 — SALINAS
20A Mortensen Avenue
Salinas, CA 93905
CALSTAR 5 was established in Salinas in April of 2002. Based at the Salinas Airport, a mere 12 miles from the Pacific Ocean and Monterey Bay, CALSTAR 5 primarily serves the communities of the Central Coast in Monterey County, San Benito County, Santa Cruz County, and northern San Luis Obispo County – an area that fuels a two billion-dollar agricultural industry and supplies 80% of the country’s lettuce, artichokes, strawberries and other crops.
While CALSTAR 5 routinely transports to community hospitals such as Good Samaritan Hospital San Jose, Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital, and Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital, our primary receiving hospitals for trauma patients are Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, Stanford University Hospital, Regional Medical Center San Jose, and San Francisco General Hospital & Trauma Center.
