In 1988, Mark and three colleagues who were also Physical Therapists founded Penn Sports Rehab in King of Prussia. These two companies worked together, to establish themselves as premier orthopedic rehabilitation clinics. They attracted many complicated cases referred by surgeons, case managers, and manufacturing companies. Mark expanded the companies into long-term care as well as performing peer reviews for many insurance companies. In 1996, Mark and his partners were provided with an excellent opportunity to sell both companies and expand into more occupational medicine with Atlantic Health Group. When that opportunity fell short of expectations, Mark reformed Penn Therapy Associates, Inc. At that same time, Mark formed a joint venture with his friend Roy Lerman, M.D., at Main Line Spine in King of Prussia. That facility continues to operate as a satellite facility of Penn Therapy Associates.
