Iselin, NJ, and King of Prussia, PA, April 5, 2018 – Omni Eye Services (“Omni”), a portfolio company of NMS Capital (“NMS”), announced today its strategic partnership with Kremer Eye Center (“Kremer”), a market-leading regional provider of medical-surgical eye care services in the mid-Atlantic. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Headquartered in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, Kremer is a market-leading medical-surgical eye care provider in the Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware area and one of the largest multispecialty ophthalmic practices in the mid-Atlantic. Over the past 35+ years, Kremer has remained at the forefront of ophthalmic surgery, performing the first LASIK surgery in North America and introducing one-stitch and eventually no-stitch cataract surgery.
Remarking on the transaction, Dr. Christopher Quinn, CEO of Omni, said, “Kremer’s reputation in the mid-Atlantic is unparalleled, and their commitment to a supportive and respectful relationship with community optometrists through co-managed care makes for a natural alliance with Omni. We look forward to being a part of Kremer’s continued success. As part of the strategic relationship, all of Kremer’s physician partners will maintain their current roles with the group and will hold significant ownership in Omni while continuing to operate as Kremer Eye Center in its existing markets.”
Dr. Michael Aronsky, Kremer managing partner and surgeon, commented, “We are thrilled to partner with Omni and benefit from the efficiencies and administrative support of Omni’s practice management services enabling us to better focus our attention on the needs of our patients. Kremer has been providing high-quality eye care in the mid-Atlantic for nearly four decades, and we believe this affiliation positions us well for the future. We look forward to collaborating with the Omni team to expand our presence, while continuing to provide first-class patient care and establish an exceptional work environment for our physicians.”
Luis Gonzalez, partner at NMS, added, “This is Omni’s second affiliation of 2018, and the Kremer partnership significantly accelerates Omni’s presence to over 50 providers across 16 practice locations, including two ambulatory surgery centers, throughout New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. Kremer represents a very attractive foundation for us in the mid-Atlantic market and, similar to Omni, has consistently demonstrated the highest focus on patient care, employee satisfaction and community outreach.”
