How One Balances Medicine And Business, Dr. Mark McKenna Above The Stereotype!November 7, 2017 - Author: steph
As a surgeon, Dr. Mark McKenna strives to re-establish the value of elective medical services. With his newly launched medical aesthetic clinic, OVME, he’s breathing life into the idea. Having served the industry for over a decade, Dr. McKenna emphasizes that the industry needs effective disruptive solutions to advance medical care procedures. Now that he’s acquired extensive experience and developed a broader skill set as an aesthetic surgeon. Dr. McKenna feels it’s the right time to put his ideas in motion.
The Louisiana-native holds a license to operate in Georgia and Florida as a certified practitioner of aesthetic surgery. He also serves the Medical Examiner Board of both states. He received his medical degrees after completing his residency and medical training at Louisiana’s prestigious Tulane University. After graduation, Dr. McKenna briefly practiced medicine with his dad while developing a real estate manager. He later expanded his business interests to include Uptown Title Inc. and Universal Mortgage Lending alongside McKenna Venture Investments.
Although Hurricane Katrina reshaped the future of his businesses in New Orleans, this didn’t dampen his entrepreneurial spirit. Dr. McKenna founded ShapeMed after starting afresh in Atlanta. With ShapeMed, he focused his medical practice on aesthetic surgery and wellness procedures based on an elective approach. In 2014, Life Time Fitness Incorporated, a 24-hour health club chain directed by Dr. McKenna acquired ShapeMed.
The doctor remains actively committed to community philanthropic endeavors and family. When Katrina ravaged New Orleans, Dr. McKenna was among sponsors rebuilding the community. In fact, he’s been credited as one of the chief developers behind the city’s affordable family-defined housing projects. His contribution elsewhere has been tremendously beneficial in provisioning future-forward solutions to improve quality life.
Having achieved enormous success as an entrepreneur and medical professional, Dr. McKenna explains it all on “Doctorpreneur.” The CBS documentary series which aired its first season in Fall 2013 (October 27th) focused on highlights of medical practitioners and their crossover to entrepreneurial horizons. At the time, Dr. McKenna discussed how ShapeMed came about and its transformative process to reach the mainstream industry.
Dr. McKenna gets around as a responsible community advocate supporting numerous initiatives. He’s a former affiliate of the NOIDB (New Orleans Industrial Development Board). Similarly, he’s one celebrating the city’s cultural and musical heritage as a board representative of New Orleans Jazz Fest. He’s also promoting growth and innovation as an Entrepreneurs Organization advocate.
