Skip to the end of the Expertise Menu

Palmetto Retina Center, comprised of five retina specialists across six offices serving South Carolina, has partnered with Retina Consultants of America (RCA), a portfolio company of Webster Equity Partners. This is the seventh leading retina specialty practice to join RCA as the organization continues its expansion across the U.S.  Provident Healthcare Partners (Provident) served as exclusive financial advisor to Palmetto Retina Center. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“We could not be happier with the Provident team as they helped guide us through the complex process of partnering with RCA. As experts in healthcare, they could look at the various candidates critically, accurately analyze our business operations, and position us most favorably for negotiations.  Where Provident really adds value is in the final stages of the transaction.  Diligence is a daunting process, and Provident led the various teams through to a positive conclusion.  I could not recommend Provident more highly if you are looking for transaction advisors in healthcare,” noted Dr. Lloyd Clark, Partner at Palmetto Retina Center.

“The addition of Palmetto Retina Center to the Retina Consultants of America platform adds another group of market leading retina specialists in a new region. Palmetto’s alliance with RCA will allow them to continue to provide superior patient care and clinical research in existing geographies as well as assist them in expansion into the highly fragmented Southeast retina market,” stated Michael Patton, Managing Director at Provident.

“The physicians at Palmetto Retina Center have developed a leading clinical reputation nationally as a provider of retina services and clinical research. The partnership with Retina Consultants of America adds to the growing national network of premier retina practices at RCA,” commented Eric Major, Director at Provident.
