Physical therapist assumes director role with orthopedic surgeons group

MOORESVILLE, Ind. – Mark Anderson has been named director of Franciscan Physician Network’s Joint Replacement Surgeons of Indiana (JRSI) and the Center for Hip and Knee Surgery (CHKS) at Franciscan St. Francis Health.

JRSI is the physician practice group affiliated with the CHKS, which is recognized in the United States and the world as a premier center for joint replacement surgery. Both JRSI and CHKS are based in Mooresville, with offices in Carmel and Greenwood.

Anderson has been with Franciscan St. Francis for 16 years and has served in the leadership position in Therapy Services at the Mooresville campus for more than 13 years. He graduated from Indiana University’s Physical Therapy program in 1997 and earned his master’s degree in business administration through Indiana Wesleyan University in 2009. 

He will continue to oversee the operations of Therapy Services until a successor has been identified.

Anderson has participated in the development of the joint replacement program at CHKS and has played a key role in the evolution of its joint rehabilitation protocols. He also has been instrumental in formulating the education materials all patients receive prior to surgery.

“Mark possesses the talent, skill and desire to support the unique needs of this high-performing practice as we look to accelerate our market growth locally, regionally, nationally and internationally,” said Peter J. Murphy, senior vice president and chief operating officer, Franciscan St. Francis Health-Mooresville.
