Treatment in Place

Alternative Care Models

In parts of our service area, our medics are able to treat patients in the comfort of their own homes, rather than transport them unnecessarily to hospitals and emergency departments.

Air Services

In Flight Since 1981

Because Louisiana’s diverse geography of rich swamps, bayous, marsh lands and vast rural areas make quick response by ground ambulances a difficult task, Acadian Ambulance expanded in 1981 to launch Air Med. In addition to faster response times in rural areas, our helicopters and fixed-wing planes allow Acadian Ambulance to quickly reach, Air Med also allowed Acadian Ambulance to quickly reach emergencies offshore.
