Acadian Ambulance is an ambulance service[1] that covers most of the state of Louisiana.

Headquartered in Lafayette, Louisiana, Acadian Ambulance maintains a fleet of more than 200 ground ambulances, as well as eight medical transport helicopters and five fixed-wing aircraft that provide aerial transport to medical facilities.

Acadian began operations in 1971 when funeral homes stopped providing ambulance service because of new, financially burdensome federal guidelines.

In addition to emergency medical services, Acadian offers an aircraft charter service, a personal medical alarm service, fire and burglar alarm service, industrial medical personnel, fire and safety technicians, and medical and industrial training, as well as billing software.

With its large ambulance fleet and over 2,700 employees, Acadian is the largest private rural ambulance service in the United States.


Acadian Ambulance played a leading role in coordinating the response to various healthcare emergencies caused by Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita in 2005.

In the summer of 2006, Acadian exapanded into southeast Texas and began providing emergency medical services in Orange County, Texas. In October 2006, Acadian acquired the assets of MetroCare EMS and began providing emergency and non-emergency transports in Jefferson County, Texas.


Acadian Ambulance Service also provides ALS Ambulance Service to Jackson County, Mississippi.
