You’re not an employee.
You’re an owner!
In 1993, Acadian instituted an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), giving eligible employees the opportunity to own private shares in the company. Through this structure, employees own the company, giving us a sense of pride and a stronger investment in our work.
Acadian sets up a trust fund for qualifying employees and contributes new shares of its own stock or cash to buy existing shares. Acadian employees currently own 80% of the company stock.
What We Stand for
Acadian employees have a great deal of pride in their jobs and see every day as an opportunity to make a difference. Our passion and compassion guide our actions as we treat more than just the injury or ailment, but the person as a whole. Our innovation and use of advanced technology help us to improve our services and care for the citizens of Ouachita Parish.
As an employee-owned company, our team members are treated with respect and work together, as a family, to ensure we are providing a safe, friendly, inclusive and diverse work environment.
Acadian Ambulance Service
Acadian began as a small ambulance company in Lafayette Parish, Louisiana on September 1, 1971. Since then, we have expanded to include a nationally recognized diverse suite of services designed to offer the very best support in health, safety and transportation. Our fleet now contains more than 580 ground ambulances, helicopters and fixed-wing airplanes in 77 parishes and counties spanning Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas.
In addition to providing emergency and non-emergency pre-hospital care and transport, we provide EMS education, industrial health, environmental and safety services, inspection, training, consulting, dynamic security equipment and monitoring for homes and businesses and charter flight services.
