25th-Anniv-Logo2014 is a major milestone for The Marden Companies. Twenty-five years ago, with a vision to become a leading regional provider of therapy services, Marden began with a single Ohio outpatient clinic. Since then, we have evolved into a comprehensive ancillary health care organization that furnishes inpatient and outpatient therapy services in five states and in-home nursing in Ohio. Join us as we mark this milestone anniversary, and help us set the tone for the next 25 years, as we roll back the clock and take a brief look at 25 Years of The Marden Companies.

Marden Petroleum Exploration Company, Inc., founded in 1984 was the first of what would later become The Marden Companies. Marden Petroleum drilled and operated oil and gas wells in Ohio and West Virginia. The name Marden is a combination of MAR(ietta) and DEN(ver), as when energy operations were initiated, the Company had an office in Marietta, Ohio and Denver, Colorado.

Randall A. Mason and Harry J. Kuhn founded Marden Rehabilitation Associates, Inc., the parent company of today’s Marden Companies, in July of 1989, while Marden Petroleum remained active. Private shareholders, most of who were investors of Marden Petroleum, initially financed Marden Rehabilitation. Nearly all of the founding shareholders remain involved with the Company today, and several serve as Directors. Mr. Kuhn left the Company in early 1997 and Mr. Mason remained with the organization.

Marden Rehabilitation, with Home Offices in Marietta, Ohio began operations by purchasing a physician-owned outpatient physical therapy clinic in Kent, Ohio. Immediately thereafter, our first Medicare Certified Rehab Agency, Marden Rehabilitation Associates of Portage County, Inc., was formed. (The Portage County company currently operates as Marden Rehabilitation Associates of West Virginia.) Marden Rehabilitation Services, Inc. also began at this time, anticipating contract therapy operations outside of the Rehab Agency.

In 1991 Marden Rehabilitation Services added contract therapy operations for skilled nursing facilities in Ohio. Pennsylvania operations followed in July 1993, West Virginia in April 1994, Kentucky in July 2013, and Florida in August 2014.

Beginning in 1994, Marden initiated therapy services to hospitals creating a comprehensive approach to in and outpatient therapy service and management. The missing piece in the continuum joined at the end of 1997, when Marden acquired Health Care Plus and Preferred Care Plus, adding home health services, including intermittent skilled nursing care, continuous private duty care, and staffing throughout Ohio. Cynthia Bowersock-Thiel founded Health Care Plus in 1991.

Today, The Marden Companies consist of eleven corporations that provide superior medical rehabilitation and home health services. Rehabilitation services include physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech/language pathology services in outpatient clinics, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living facilities throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky and Florida. Home health services include in-home nursing, rehabilitation services, custodial care and medical staffing services throughout Ohio.
