JCA was founded in 1996 through the purchase of Jackson Emergency Medical Services. JCA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is a 50/50 partnership between Emergent Health Partners and Henry Ford Allegiance Health.

In 2012 our Board of Trustees created Emergent Health Partners, which owns and operates JCA as well as five other ambulance services throughout southern Michigan. Altogether Emergent Health’s EMS agencies serve over 1 million Michigan residents.
