Since 2002

RescueStat is a healthcare technology pioneer focused on saving lives and protecting organizations from unexpected critical life events. We do this by delivering simple solutions backed by innovative technology and expert human support.  

Our History

In Boise, ID in 2002, fellow ER doctors, Tad Cowley and Tommy Ahlquist, noticed a real need to save lives from sudden cardiac arrest before patients arrived dead to the hospital.  They partnered with Craig Rasmussen and Rick Johnson and founded Stat PADS.

Stat PADS was created to provide public access defibrillation services for owners of AEDs. We believe that organizations seek to care for their most important resource, their employees, and also want to protect themselves against legal risk associated with lifesaving.  

Now known as RescueStat, we are eagerly partnering with forward-thinking organizations that seek to empower their people to save lives from one of the largest killers in America.

Our mission is to save lives and protect organizations from unexpected critical life events.

Our Core Values


We draw the best out of each other by assuming the best in each other. We don’t take trust for granted and reaffirm it through our actions.


We are truth seekers and believe in continuous improvement. We are creative and thrive on feedback as we innovate forward.


We embrace adversity as a necessary ingredient to fuel our growth. We have a can do attitude and focus on the most important things.
