In 1970, Preston founded Life Care Centers of America in Cleveland, and is the sole owner, chairman and CEO. It later grew to be the largest privately owned long term care facility chain and the third largest privately owned long-term care facility in the United States.


Together with his brother Winton, he co-founded a company called Hospital Publications to create patient booklets and public relations materials for hospitals, and the company operated until 1972. The idea had come from his work in hospitals, where he concluded that there was a need for better public relations in the Health care system. Through this Business, he observed the conditions of elderly patients in hospitals, and concluded that there was a need for better long term care.

His Father died in 1994, and Preston endowed the Benjamin M. Preston scholarship at Atlantic Union College, of which his Father was an alumnus.
