Partnership will build upon one of the largest ophthalmic–optometric private practice provider groups in Florida
New Harbor Capital announced today that its portfolio company Quigley Eye Specialists (“Quigley”, “the Company”) has partnered with Visual Health, expanding its footprint into Palm Beach County. This partnership will build upon one of the largest ophthalmic–optometric private practice provider groups in the state of Florida and continues the execution of Quigley’s mission to be a leading patient-first, comprehensive eye care service provider throughout the state.
Visual Health represents the eighth follow-on investment for Quigley Eye Specialists since New Harbor completed an equity investment in January of 2020. Over this period, the Company has transformed from one surgery center with eight clinics to five surgery centers with 24 clinics. Simultaneously, Quigley’s provider base has expanded from 16 to 42 and continues to grow.
Visual Health was founded in 1963, making it the longest established ophthalmology practice in Palm Beach County. Specializing in cataract surgery, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, corneal transplants, and external eye diseases, as well as all areas of eye care, Visual Health provides services at Palm Springs and Jupiter, Florida with each location having an adjoining surgery center.
As a result of this partnership, Quigley Eye Specialists’ patients will have increased access to a broad network of experienced eye surgeons, exceptional optometrists, advanced technology, and compassionate staff to help patients achieve their best possible vision.
“We are excited about the potential this combination unlocks,” said Dr. Thomas Quigley, Founder of Quigley Eye Specialists. “We considered various strategic partners for our initial entry into Palm Beach County and are very happy to have chosen Visual Health because of the caliber of their personnel and organization. Every interaction has reinforced our common mission, caring culture, and patient-centric philosophy. We have no doubt Visual Health is the right partner and now is the right time.”
“The goal of this partnership is to create a win-win for everyone—and in our case, the patient is at the center of that circle,” added Dr. Tom Coffman of Visual Health.
Founded in 1988 by Dr. Thomas Quigley, Quigley Eye Specialists has grown to become one of the nation’s leading multispecialty ophthalmology practices, specializing in cataracts, laser cataract surgery, glaucoma, LASIK, dry eye, eyelid surgery, retinal issues, corneal conditions, routine eye care, and facial plastic surgery.
