OUR ORIGIN STORY

It all began when a pregnant woman from a rural community died from blood loss, leaving a father alone with their newborn. For STARS founder Dr. Powell, her death was one too many. Something had to be done.

Motivated to change emergency care across rural Alberta, Dr. Powell and his colleagues created a helicopter air ambulance service, which was built and supported by the community.

While the faces have changed, STARS team members continue to be motivated by our passion for saving more lives and our desire to be the disruptive innovator who contributes to transformation in the health-care system.

As we’ve grown and evolved, STARS has never wavered from our mission. Fundamentally we all believe that where you live – or work, play and travel – shouldn’t impact your chance of survival.

Our strategy focuses on three core groups that are integral to our fight to save lives:

Patients

VIPs are at the centre of our universe and at the forefront of everything we do.




Crew

Our missions would not be possible without everyone who works here and makes it a reality.




Allies

We have a community of supporters who play a vital role in our efforts to save lives.
