Acadian Ambulance’s Texas operations have earned a perfect score in the reaccreditation review and received a three-year reaccreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services (CAAS).
Acadian Ambulance has been CAAS-accredited since 1995. Its Louisiana and Mississippi operations were reaccredited by CAAS in 2021. It is one of three ambulance services in Louisiana and Mississippi, one of 11 in Texas and one of 206 in the nation to be designated with CAAS accreditation.
The review, similar to the rigorous process used by hospitals and nursing facilities, is conducted every three years and includes an intensive application process and a multi-day on-site inspection by outside experts. Four reviewers from across the nation visited the company’s Texas service area. For the fifth accreditation evaluation in a row, the company received a perfect score.
CAAS was established to encourage and promote quality patient care in America’s medical transportation system. Accreditation signifies that an agency has met the industry’s highest standards, which often exceed state or local regulations.
“Although it’s not required for operation, we seek CAAS accreditation because it represents the gold standard in EMS and helps ensure accountability to our patients and partners,” said Acadian Ambulance President Justin Back. “The reviewers noted that our equipment, training, technology, and fleet are ‘leading the industry’ and are ‘top-notch.’”
Acadian Ambulance is one of the largest ambulance services in the nation, providing transportation and medical service to areas in Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, and Tennessee.
Since 1971, Acadian Companies has been dedicated to providing the highest level of emergency medical care and transportation possible. The company has expanded to include a diverse suite of services designed to offer the very best support and education in health, safety, security, education and transportation.
