South Star
Speedy, In-Flight Care

After a traumatic accident, few sounds are as reassuring as the SouthSTAR helicopter quickly coming to your aid.

The first 60 minutes after a traumatic injury is called the “golden hour” because it’s the most critical time to have a successful outcome. If you have serious injuries, quick transfer from the accident scene to trauma center is crucial.

SouthSTAR medical air transport provides reliable and speedy transfer so you or a loved one can get necessary critical care. SouthSTAR is South Jersey’s only designated airborne emergency medical service. The SouthSTAR helicopter provides airborne emergency medical services 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.

The helicopter is staffed by two state police pilots, as well as a Virtua flight nurse and flight paramedic. These medical professionals are specifically trained to work in the air medical environment. Such advanced care and the speed of the helicopter increases chances of survival.
