Acadian Companies

Our Story

Acadian Ambulance Service was founded in 1971 and has since earned a reputation as the nation’s largest and most respected privately held medical transportation company. Our growth, diversity and commitment to excellence have garnered us international acclaim and recognition by the U.S. Senate, Microsoft founder and author Bill Gates, Inc. Magazine, and the Smithsonian Institution.

What began as a small ambulance company has expanded to include a diverse suite of services designed to offer the very best support and education in health, safety and transportation. Our company’s six divisions—Acadian Ambulance Service, Acadian Air MedExecutive Aircraft Charter ServiceAcadian Total SecurityNational EMS Academy and Safety Management Systems—offer diverse career opportunities.

Our medical team stands ready to provide emergency and non-emergency services in hundreds of communities throughout Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi. Overall, Acadian employs more than 4,000 employees across the United States and internationally.

The tough standards we meet to earn national accreditation are important for providing the best possible patient care.

This voluntary process signifies that we have met the “gold standard” determined by the ambulance industry to be essential in our operations and relationships with other agencies, the general public, and the medical community. Accreditation means that we are functioning at the highest level possible, and have achieved a goal reached by fewer than four companies in our entire service area.
