Benchmark Therapies was formed in 2005 by a single therapist with a vision of creating a therapy company that truly focused on innovative, patient-centered care by kind, passionate therapists – all while maintaining a partnership approach with clients.

Our President and Founder quickly developed a passion for providing the personalized attention patients deserve – the kind of specialized care he felt was lacking by most contract therapy providers. Through Benchmark, rehabilitation services have yielded undeniable care outcomes and fostered a strong company culture of motivated therapists who feel valued and have the resources required to be true clinicians – all while improving the financial outcomes for our clients.

The integrity, work ethic, and open communication our management teams and therapists possess allow our growing company to have highly valued expertise and influence that is sought after by our clients’ staff and administrators.

Our sole focus then and now is caring for the geriatric population and we continue take pride in dramatically raising the “benchmark” of the quality of life that our patients achieve and the strong bonds of partnership our clients experience.

Our executives have a combined 80 years of therapy experience and over 60 years of management experience. They are responsive, available, and provide true partnership and guidance to our clients and therapists. Our leadership team stays connected to their passion for patient care by building innovative clinical solutions through close collaboration with our clients and therapy teams.
