Fort Lauderdale, Florida, UNITED STATES


Fort Lauderdale, Sept. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cross Keys Capital served as the exclusive sell-side M&A advisor to Rockland Retina (RR) in its partnership with Retina Consultants of America (RCA).

Rockland Retina is a premier provider of medical care for retinal disease in New City, New York, part of the New York Metropolitan Area. Founded in 2001 by Louis Maisel, MD, Rockland Retina provides elite retinal care to a broad patient base across Rockland and Orange Counties, and Northern New Jersey.

Dr. Maisel, when asked about the process, stated, “Partnering with Cross Keys Capital gave me access to prospective partners I would not have been able to obtain on my own. This made it possible to successfully partner with the strongest organizations with a shared vision of patient care - Retina Consultants of America and Vitreoretinal Consultants of New York."

Formed by Webster Equity Partners and headquartered in Southlake, Texas, RCA is partnering with leading retina specialists who seek a strategic partner with the capital resources and expertise to invest in their practice infrastructure and position them for continued growth in their markets. RCA is unique in offering the first horizontal alliance in the eye-care field focused solely on retinal care.

“We are excited to expand further in the New York region, joining the resources of VitreoRetinal Consultants (VRC) together with Dr. Maisel. His commitment to delivering the highest quality of care and passion for his patients align perfectly with RCA’s mission and the vision of VRC,” said Robert Grabow, CEO of RCA.

Jeanne Proia, Managing Director at Cross Keys, commented, "We are proud to have been a part of bringing these two practices together. This kind of partnership shows how both parties can contribute value in a relationship like this from the start."
