In October 2022, Shore Capital Partners (“Shore”) announced the sale of EyeSouth Partners (“EyeSouth”), a leading provider of comprehensive ophthalmology services across the eastern United States, to Olympus Partners (“Olympus”). Shore formed EyeSouth in 2017 with the goal of creating a leading ophthalmology platform in the South and providing the highest level of support to its practices and clinicians. At the time of founding, Shore completed a strategic partnership with Georgia Eye Partners and its founding physician, Dr. Eugene Gabianelli, was appointed Chief Medical Officer of EyeSouth. Led by Chief Executive Officer Rex Adams, EyeSouth grew its affiliate network from 5 locations to over 155 locations throughout Georgia, Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Tennessee, Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Alabama, North Carolina and Illinois. The growth was driven by organic and M&A initiatives, as well as EyeSouth’s ability to support its affiliated practices and physician partners with strategic guidance, administrative resources, operating expertise and capital with an absolute focus on clinical quality and a patient-first culture.
