CALSTAR 4 — UKIAH
1351 S. State Street
Ukiah, CA 95482
CALSTAR 4 opened for service on April 15, 1998 in the dynamic and progressive community of Ukiah. Surrounded by vineyards, pear orchards, and the forested coastal mountains, Ukiah is the seat of Mendocino County in Northern California.
The base serves an extensive and diverse area—a 150-mile radius that encompasses rural community hospitals such as Ukiah Valley Medical Center, Howard Memorial Hospital in Willits, and Mendocino Coast District Hospital in Fort Bragg. The closest Level II Trauma Center is Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, an hour away from Ukiah by ground ambulance, making air medical transport an essential asset to this community.
About half of our transports derive from the 911 emergency response system and half are Interfacility Transfers (IFTs), moving patients from local hospitals to those with specialty services, such as the cardiac care provide at St. Helena Hospital. It is not unusual for CALSTAR 4 to transport patients to UCSF, UC Davis, or Stanford University Hospital.
