Our History

No Area is out of Reach

Acadian Air Med

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, Air Med also allowed Acadian Ambulance to quickly reach emergencies offshore.

Today, Air Med flies more first-response missions than any other air medical service in the United States.

Our Mission

As Acadian Companies employee-owners, we see every opportunity to make a difference. Our mission of “Knowing life matters” guides our actions as we treat more than just the injury or ailment, but the person as a whole.

Air Med Services’ commitment to safety, innovation and use of new technology will help deliver the highest level of services and care while ensuring at the end of the day, our customer’s expectations are exceeded and all of the Air Med team goes home safe.
