Getting Healthcare Right

Dr. Mark Wendling

Dr. Mark Wendling

I have been a practicing family physician in the Lehigh Valley for nearly 20 years, and continue to practice at LVPG Family Medicine Emmaus. During my tenure with Lehigh Valley Health Network, I have been a member of the teaching faculty of the Department of Family Medicine. I helped launch a quality program in the Lehigh Valley Physician Group and served as Chair of LVPG Board of Governors for nine years, stepping down from that role one year ago.

I have also served as Medical Director of the LVPHO and Valley Preferred for the last six years, evolving the LVPHO ACE program to its current nationally recognized status. As Medical Director of the Lehigh Valley Health Network Accountable Care Organization for over two years, I am also proud of our successful first year of participation in the CMS ACO program, making the LVHN ACO the only successful ACO in the state of Pennsylvania.

I am a graduate of the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine, did my residency in Family Medicine at St. Margaret Memorial Hospital in Pittsburgh — and, notably, was born at Lehigh Valley Hospital.
