GCG Advises on the Partnership of Southeast Michigan's Premier Ophthalmology Physician Group and Ambulatory Surgery Center to Midwest Vision Partners

Back to news articles

Greenwich Capital Group (“GCG”) is pleased to announce its role as the exclusive investment banker to Grosinger, Spigelman & Grey (“GSG”), Cataract and Eye Consultants of Michigan (“CECOM”) and Eye Surgery Center of Michigan (“ESCM”), or the “Practices”, on its partnership with Midwest Vision Partners (“MVP”), a portfolio company of Alpine Investors. This transaction adds to GCG’s extensive experience within the healthcare services and physician practice management sectors.

About the Transaction

GSG and CECOM provide a comprehensive suite of medical and surgical eye care services, including premium cataract surgery, laser vision correction, disease management treatments, and retina services. ESCM is an award-winning, single-specialty ambulatory surgery center supporting leading ophthalmologists in Greater Detroit. Collectively, the groups employ seven physicians and over 150 employees operating out of four locations. An increasing demand for their services, combined with a robust network of referral relationships and a market-leading reputation has resulted in a network of ophthalmological providers that had established themselves for outside investment. GCG was hired in 2020 as the exclusive financial advisor to the Practices, tasked with assisting the partners to identify a strategic partner to provide the resources and capital necessary to help them expand their growing ophthalmology platform in Southeast Michigan.

“Greenwich Capital Group advised us through a competitive process to find the proper partner in MVP. Joe Schmitt and the Greenwich team were there for us at every step of the way”, said Dr. Les Grosinger, GSG.

“GCG was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. These transactions can be very stressful, and the Greenwich team was always there to calmly keep things moving forward”, added Dr. Alan Parent, CECOM.

GCG brings deep transaction experience and trusted advisory to physician practices, as private equity and strategic industry consolidators continue to seek out acquisition opportunities across ophthalmology and a range of other specialties.
