ArentFox Schiff Advises Centre Partners on Sale of Its Eye Care Portfolio to Gryphon

Centre Partners, a private equity firm specializing in the healthcare and consumer industries, engaged ArentFox Schiff to represent physician-owners and management in the sale of Vision Innovation Partners, a leading ophthalmology service provider in the mid-Atlantic region, to Gryphon Investors on April 7, 2022.

In 2017, ArentFox Schiff represented Chesapeake Eyecare and Laser Center, led by Dr. Maria Scott, and Dr. Mark Whitten in the combination of their premier ophthalmology practices and their sale to Centre Partners. This combination served as the platform acquisition and paved the way for Vision Innovation Partners’ extraordinary growth. ArentFox Schiff went on to represent numerous other mid-Atlantic ophthalmology practices that joined Centre Partners, which, in just four years, acquired 23 practices with a combined 65 clinics and 11 surgery centers across multiple states.
