About Us


In 1992, Med Express Ambulance Service, Inc., was founded by Mark Majors, a longtime EMT-Paramedic, with the purpose and passion to improve ambulance access to rural Central Louisiana.  25 years later, Med Express has been recognized as an innovative, progressive and well-respected part of the Louisiana EMS community.

 

Our operations offices are located in Alexandria. This modern facility houses our communications center, professional development, human resources, maintenance of vehicles and central supply.  All other administrative functions are located at the primary Med Express office, 505 Church St., Melville, LA.


All requisite insurance, DEA licenses, medical waste disposal agreements and personnel compliance and certifications are maintained to meet all state, and in our case, all federal requirements for contracted providers.  We are inspected, licensed, equipped, staffed, and operate under the same guidelines of all ALS ground ambulance services


In 2001 MedExpress was awarded a major contract by the U.S. government to provide emergency and non-emergency services to military personnel and their families at Louisiana's Fort Polk military base. Today, Med Express provides Emergency Medical Services at Creech Air Force Base and supports DOD activities in 4 other states.  Within Louisiana, MedExpress operates ambulance and wheelchair van services in five Louisiana parishes- Avoyelles, Rapides, Sabine, St. Landry, Vernon.  Additionally, Med Express is a primary contractor for medical staffing support for the MegaShelter and other disaster related projects.


The mission of Med Express Ambulance Service is to provide excellent emergency and non-emergency ambulance transportation to rural Louisiana in a manner that is unsurpassed in quality, professionalism, and compassion and sustain this mission with reasonable, efficient, and solid business practices.  This mission is accomplished by putting the care of the patient above all else, and offering options that reduces the costs for these services.  By partnering with AirEvac Lifeteam, Med Express now has ACCESS to the most advanced helicopter ambulance service in Louisiana in all of our service areas.
