MARSCare was founded in 1984 by Gerald F. Szucs, Ph.D.
Dr. Szucs is a past Assistant Secretary of Health in the Office of the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare, in Washington D.C. The Company was originally known as “Mid Atlantic Rehabilitation Services, Inc.” hence the acronym, “MARS.” In 1986, MARS began its history as a staffing agency for Physical and Occupational Therapists. In 1993 services were expanded and we started providing home health services for an adult/geriatric population. Additional expansion efforts continued in 1997 when we wanted to serve more unmet needs of our community resulting in the addition of our Pediatric Services.
In 2006 the doors of Frankie’s World Medical Day Care Center were opened. Frankie’s World Foundation, a 501(c)3, not-for-profit, charitable organization was created to support young children with special medical needs by operating the medical day
care center. The Center provides for the health and well-being of children, ages birth through 12 years, who are medically-fragile, technology-dependent or have been diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses by providing skilled nursing care in a traditional daycare setting.
Today, with the advent of Frankie’s World Pediatric Services (FWPS), we celebrate the fact that we have come full circle! FWPS is the newest collaborative effort of MARSCare and Frankie’s World Foundation. Through a special arrangement, Frankie’s World Medical Day Care Center now offers comprehensive Home Health services in a seamless, easy to navigate fashion. One phone call, one agency for families to navigate along with all the advantages of a facility-based center, our mutual patients now benefit from this new service delivery model. We are now truly, a FAMILY OF HEALTHCARE COMPANIES, dedicated to being at home and/or at our daycare with our families.
