Your neighbors for over half a century

Acadian Ambulance began operations in South Louisiana more than 50 years ago. In 2000, we expanded to Mississippi when we became the 911 provider in Jackson County, and we began operations in Desoto County as part of our Memphis operations in 2022.

Our Mississippi team members have continually worked hard to raise the standard of medical care and transportation.

We have established lifelong and strong relationships with local hospitals, medical personnel and community leaders.

Employee Owner Month

We don’t have employees.
we have owners!

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.
