PHOENIX, ARIZONA (March 11, 2021) – American Vision Partners (AVP), one of the largest and fastest-growing eye care practice management organizations in the nation, has announced a strategic partnership with Southwest Eye Institute. Southwest Eye Institute, founded in 2004, is the largest eye care practice in El Paso, TX, with additional operations in Las Cruces, NM.
The partnership will extend AVP’s footprint and serve as a platform for expansion into Texas and New Mexico with the region’s leading eye care practice.
Southwest Eye Institute will continue to operate with no changes to its brand, existing providers or staff, and patients will continue to receive the highest quality care with the added support, technology, and equipment of AVP. The partnership will also provide patients with enhanced access to care through new location openings and additional sub-specialty coverage.
Dr. Marc Ellman, who founded Southwest Eye Institute and will continue to lead the practice, stated, “Since the beginning, I have always had a simple motto for providing medical care, which is to treat every patient as if they were a family member. This partnership is going to allow us to continue to combine compassion with the best comprehensive eye care possible.”
“Our team is very excited to work with the team at Southwest Eye Institute. We support their mission that focuses on patients and we look forward to partnering with them to provide even broader, stronger care to this new geographic region for AVP,” said Randy Dobbs, CEO of American Vision Partners.
