The Mackool Eye Institute And New York Eye Surgery Center Sign Letters Of Intent Related To A Transaction With OCLI and Spectrum Vision Partners

Dr. Richard Mackool stated, “There are significant financial and practice benefits from a partnership with a leading organization such as OCLI and SVP, but our vision is to accomplish more. Our member physicians will have immediate access to world-class ongoing internal surgical and skills update programs, and I know we can do this extremely well. We have a great deal of teaching skill and experience in our practices, and we are very serious about this.”

Dr. Jerome Levy, long-term past president and now President Emeritus of the Outpatient Ophthalmic Surgery Society (OOSS), an organization dedicated to ophthalmic ASCs nationwide, stated, “We look forward to working with our colleagues from both OCLI and The Mackool Eye Institute to continue delivering exceptional patient care. The economies of scale of multiple leading ASCs and many affiliated practices in the NY metropolitan area will allow our surgeons to expand their ability to examine and treat patients, and to care for those requiring surgery in our very efficient ASCs.”

“SVP is extremely pleased to be assisting OCLI with its continued growth as these prestigious practices join to expand their partnership of eye care doctors and surgeons in the New York metropolitan area.” Tom Burke, CEO of SVP stated. “We are particularly pleased to collaborate with Dr. Richard Mackool and Dr. Jerome Levy, whom we have known and respected for more than thirty years. They are both innovative thought leaders, whose significant personal and clinical dedication to the advancement of eye care and eye care leadership is renowned. Our team is honored to have been chosen as the management services organization who will lend guidance and support to these state-of-the-art practices and their Ambulatory Surgery Centers.”

“The doctors and respective teams at these practices deserve recognition for all they have done to uphold the high standards of their profession. They are truly at the forefront of ophthalmology, and have led the way with significant efforts to improve their patients’ eye health, first and foremost. Again, we are very proud to call them partners and to be at their service.”

Dr. Eric Donnenfeld, past president of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, stated, “The addition of two legendary giants in the field of ophthalmology, Drs. Richard Mackool and Jerome Levy, greatly enhances the dedication of our practice to superb patient care, innovation, and extraordinary surgeons.”

The Bloom Organization (“Bloom”) served as an advisor to both New York Eye and The Mackool Eye Institute. Bloom negotiated terms of the letter of intent and assisted with sell-side diligence on OCLI and Spectrum Vision Partners. In addition to advising ophthalmologists across the United States, Bloom is advising physicians and executives in all lines of healthcare services. “Dr. Dick Mackool and Dr. Jerome Levy are national leaders in the ophthalmology space and well respected amongst their peers. We believe they bring tremendous value to their new partners at OCLI,” said Brian Liberty, Senior Vice President at The Bloom Organization.
