Benchmark founder, Brock Eppley, started the company with a simple goal — to better meet the rehab needs of a single nursing home in rural Central Pennsylvania. His experiences as a speech-language pathologist working in skilled nursing facilities made him confident that the therapy experience could be enhanced and results could be improved for everyone involved – from patient to administrator.
Not long after securing that first contract, Brock’s assumptions were proven correct. CMIs improved, Medicare rates increased, therapists committed to the Benchmark vision, and patient and family satisfaction improved. Initially founded to serve one customer, Benchmark soon found itself expanding to work with other customers through word of mouth. Similar positive outcomes were realized as customers were added, and the company continued to grow.
Benchmark has come a long way since inception. The organization has expanded to now service skilled nursing facilities, hospitals, outpatient clinics, and assisted living facilities in both metropolitan and rural communities from Erie to Philadelphia. Through hard work and a team of dedicated professionals, Benchmark continues to experience strong growth and customer satisfaction while being guided by the following core principles:
