Vantage EyeCare Expands in Philadelphia Area With the Addition of Three Eyecare Practices

Vantage EyeCare LLC, which was formed earlier this year with the intention of becoming the largest, private ophthalmology group in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, has added three eyecare companies to its operations, according to an announcement Friday. The three are: Century Eye Care (with offices in Bristol and Langhorne, Pa.), Northern Ophthalmic Associates (with offices in Pennsylvania’s Jenkintown, Norristown and northeast Philadelphia) and South Jersey Eye Physicians (with offices in Columbus, Medford and Moorestown, N.J.). The three new divisions will come under the Vantage EyeCare umbrella effective Jan. 1, according to the announcement.

The terms of the transactions were not disclosed. Under the terms of the deal, Century Eye Care will merge with Tri-County Eye Physicians & Surgeons division, according to the announcement.

Vantage EyeCare describes itself as an “independent physician organization” that believes the best way “to remain patient-focused is to remain physician-led,” according to the announcement.

Vantage EyeCare was originally comprised of 45 providers, 25 service locations and 300 employees. With the addition of Ophthalmic Surgical Associates in July 2018, and now the three new divisions, Vantage Eyecare will have 85 providers, 36 service locations and 536 employees—nearly doubling in size—to serve the diverse needs of its patients, the announcement noted.

“At its core, Vantage EyeCare offers a collective commitment to the highest standards of care despite the increasing complexities of delivery,” according to the announcement. The group strives to offer “personalized care from a foundation of doctor-patient trust and collaboration”.
