Founded in 1741, the city of York is considered by many as the first capital of the United States. The Articles of Confederation were signed by the Second Continental Congress here in 1777. Its beautifully restored historic district is an architectural treasure. While York retains its farming and manufacturing heritage, at its heart York is a thriving cultural community that has attracted creative talent and innovative entrepreneurial investors from across the nation. Life in York County offers affordable housing, options for higher education, a thriving arts and cultural community, historical attractions, parks and recreational resources, a semiprofessional baseball team, fine dining and more — within an easy drive of major East Coast cities, including Baltimore, Washington D.C., and Philadelphia. It is also near the scenic Pocono Mountains to the north.

This is an opportunity to direct program growth in one of our population centers, and tailor a practice to your expertise and interests. Neighboring cities are also potential areas of growth.
