BINGHAM FARMS, Mich.—Sunvera Group, a management services organization providing support services to ophthalmology practices across multiple subspecialties, has formed a new partnership with William S. Goldstein, MD PC and Laser Eye Care Center in Shelby Township, Mich. This partnership further expands Sunvera’s network of ophthalmology and surgical centers across Michigan and Ohio, according to an announcement this week. The terms of the new partnership transaction were not disclosed. Sunvera Group, based in the metro Detroit area, is a portfolio company of Ridgemont Equity Partners.

Currently, Sunvera, which has completed and announced two new Michigan partnerships over the past several weeks, supports 16 ophthalmology clinics and two ASCs in Michigan and Ohio.

Dr. Goldstein, who operates the Laser Eye Care Center along with optometrist Dr. Andrea Braden, has practiced ophthalmology since 1994 and was among the first doctors to perform LASIK eye surgery in the state of Michigan. Dr. Goldstein is also one of a small number of select and highly skilled surgeons in the country who offers the most modern form of cataract surgery with a “no-stitch” incision, according to the announcement.

While the Laser Eye Care Center, which was established in 1998, specializes in laser eye surgeries for a spectrum of vision problems, the doctors also offer comprehensive eyecare, treating conditions like cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic eye disease and macular degeneration. “Our team of eyecare specialists create positive patient experiences and outcomes with every interaction,” Dr. Goldstein said. “We’re looking forward to partnering with Sunvera Group and will continue our commitment to service and our strong reputation as leaders in ophthalmology.”

Goldstein is the recipient of two patient care awards: the Joseph Wahlers Award for Excellence in Patient Care and the H. Saul Sugar Award for Education in Ophthalmology. He was also recently selected as one of “America’s Top Ophthalmologists” by the Consumers’ Research Council of America.

“By growing our network with experienced eyecare specialists like Dr. Goldstein and his team, we further solidify our commitment to expanding patient access to quality eyecare in the communities we serve,” Sunvera Group chief executive officer Greg Nodland said in the announcement. “We’re excited about this partnership and the tremendous dedication and passion for patient care that Dr. Goldstein shares with us.”
