Trinity Health is committed to preserving and improving the quality of health to the people we serve. Our mission is to excel at meeting the needs of the whole person through the provision of quality healthcare and health related services.
The work of the Trinity Heath is supported by NorthStar Criticair, the hospital's critical care helicopter. Established in 1992, NorthStar provides hospital-to-hospital transfers and scene response within a 150-mile radius of Trinity Hospital for adult, pediatric, high-risk neonate and high-risk labor/delivery patients.
NorthStar Criticair is an extension of Trinity’s mission to improve the health of our region. Collaborating with Executive Air Taxi Corp., Trinity’s NorthStar Criticair provides air response and rescue care 24 hours a day every day, with a flight crew, paramedics and other specialists, responding within minutes to deliver definitive care for the patient. Whether on a transport intercept with a rural ambulance, an emergent response in remote locations, or a patient transfer from a rural facility, NorthStar Criticair represents Trinity Health’s commitment to offer its communities and residents the highest levels of healthcare quality and service.
