Acadian Ambulance is now serving the community of Memphis Tennessee following a merger with a local emergency health care service.

Friday Acadian Ambulance Service and Memphis-based Emergency Mobile Health Care (EMHC) completed the merger of their operations with teams from  EMHC joining Acadian.

A release states that they will continue to provide medical transportation for the greater Memphis community including critically or injured patients. The company announced in September 2018 that they would be acquiring EMHC.

“Acadian is excited to bring a 47-year operating history into Memphis and the surrounding region,” said Justin Back, Acadian vice president of integrations. “We are dedicated to continuing the excellent work of EMHC and to bringing new resources into the area to grow our capabilities. We are committed to bringing our new and existing team members into our employee-ownership structure and supporting them so they can focus on patient care.”

Dave Sears, EMHC CEO, said, “EMHC is proud to have served the Mid-South community since 1997. We care deeply about Memphis and are very pleased to have found a partner that is able to continue to advance EMHC’s tradition.”

Acadian Ambulance serves counties and parishes in Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi and Tennessee.
