Acadian Service Area

Servicing more than 70 counties and parishes throughout Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas.


Acadian Ambulance began operations in 1971, covering fewer than 300 square miles of Lafayette Parish, to fill a dire need of emergency medical transportation. Thanks to the drive and tenacity of our three founders and eight original medics, Acadian has evolved into a multi-faceted company with a global reach.

“Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think our operations would span four states, be so diversified and have more than 5,000 employees. Perhaps the greatest blessing has been the ability to attract good, loyal, hard-working people. They truly are the cornerstone of our success.” – Richard Zuschlag



Serving 37 parishes in Louisiana, the mission of Acadian Ambulance is to provide superb service. All areas of our services are driven by a desire for excellence and we put service first in a professional and sensitive manner, while maintaining the dignity of those we serve.




Since we began service in the state in 2000, our Mississippi team has worked hard to raise the standard of medical care and transportation. We’ve become a valued and trusted member of the Jackson County community, and we’re proud of the service we have provided and the relationships we have built.




Acadian’s commitment to the Mid-South expanded to the greater Memphis area in early 2019 with two key goals: to provide the best possible patient care and services and to create a rewarding and challenging workplace. With the new resources and services we bring to the area, we can build on our tradition of excellence to best serve patients, facilities and community partners.




In 2006, Acadian became the 911 provider in Orange County. Since then, we have added 34 more counties and serve more than 17 million people spanning 36,300 square miles and operating more than 300 ambulance units.
