Acadian Ambulance Service is acquiring MedicOne Medical Response’s operations in Tennessee, Mississippi and Texas. The acquisition takes effect on February 1, 2022. MedicOne will continue to operate in Illinois.

Founded in 1999, MedicOne Medical Response has become a leading frontline healthcare transportation provider. Acadian Ambulance, founded in 1971, is a leader in emergency and non-emergency medical services in Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi and Tennessee.

Acadian Ambulance expanded into Tennessee in 2018 with the acquisition of Emergency Mobile Health Care in Memphis. The MedicOne acquisition will add Nashville to Acadian’s Tennessee service area and will strengthen current operations in Memphis, northern Mississippi, and Dallas.

“Both of our companies were founded with two key goals: to provide the best possible patient care and service, and to create a rewarding and fulfilling workplace for team members. MedicOne Medical Response and Acadian share a dedication to high standards in patient care and a commitment to the communities we serve,” said Acadian Ambulance Chairman & CEO Richard Zuschlag.

“This was a natural next step in our evolution,” said Jim Reeves, Chief Executive Officer & Founder of MedicOne Medical Response. “We are excited about the commitment and resources Acadian will provide to ensure superior service for our customers and continued growth and long-term success for our hardworking employees.”

Acadian Ambulance is one of the largest ambulance services in the nation, providing transportation and medical service. It is employee-owned and accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services, and its sister division, Acadian Air Med, is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems.
