There Where You Need Us

Acadian Companies

We started more than 50 years ago with a coverage area of less than 300 square miles of Lafayette Parish in South Louisiana. Thanks to the drive and tenacity of our three founders and eight medics, Acadian Ambulance has evolved into what is now Acadian Companies, a multi-faceted company with a global reach.

Air Med Emergency Response

Acadian Air Med

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 challenging, Acadian Ambulance launched Air Med in 1981. In addition to faster response times in rural areas, Air Med also allowed Acadian Ambulance to quickly reach emergencies offshore.

Executive Aircraft Charter Service

Fly Anywhere in North America, In Style

The availability of Air Med’s fixed-wing fleet when aircraft weren’t being used for medical flights prompted the creation of Executive Aircraft Charter Service. The aircraft’s interior can be easily reconfigured for passenger flights, making it possible for Executive Aircraft Charter Service to provide business and leisure flights throughout the continental United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America.
