In 1980, the procurement of Billie Jean King Tennis Club, King's Court Racquet Club and surrounding properties by area doctors formed an association unique to Erie County.

Their idea of creating a large health, wellness, and social activity center for Erie County families and nearby residents grew into an expansive, multi-corporate organization in excess of 200 employees and 3,000 members.

Today, Fitness Erie, Inc., dba The Pennbriar Athletic Club, stands as a tribute to the doctors' initial concept of health and wellness, and the foundation that fostered the development of a full service state-licensed day care facility, Pennbriar Child Care Services, Inc., in Erie.
