Brown Gibbons Lang & Company (BGL) is pleased to announce a new partnership between EyeCare Associates of East Texas (ECA) and EyeCare Partners (ECP) resulting in the addition of ECA’s four Texas clinics to ECP’s national network of full-scope medical optometry and ophthalmology practices, and launching ECP’s expanded presence in Texas. BGL’s Healthcare & Life Sciences team served as the exclusive financial advisor to ECA in the transaction. The transaction furthers BGL’s commitment to ophthalmology — and more broadly, the provider services sector — and represents its sixth completed provider services transaction in 2020. The specific terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Based in Tyler, Texas, ECA has grown to become one of the leading eye care providers in Eastern Texas. Today, the practice serves the community in four clinical locations and its own ASC with 12 providers supported by approximately 100 clinical and administrative staff. ECA provides comprehensive vision care in areas including, but not limited to, cataract surgery, retina treatment, glaucoma treatment, and Lasik surgery.
Based in St. Louis, Missouri, EyeCare Partners currently offers comprehensive medical eye care services throughout Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia. The doctors of ECP serve the vision care needs of hundreds of thousands of patients annually.
