CVP is building one of the country's leading ophthalmology management services organizations by bringing best-in-class operations, marketing, and patient experience expertise to partner practices working at the forefront of life-changing advances in eye care. CVP's network aligns the efforts of many physicians operating in all ophthalmic subspecialties around a singular vision: transformative eye care. The expanding CVP network leverages the professional resources of Cincinnati Eye Institute in the Midwest, Virginia Eye Consultants in the Mid-Atlantic, and the capital resources and expertise of Revelstoke Capital Partners, to identify and fund growth initiatives that would not be available to a single practice working on its own. The CVP leadership team looks forward to robust opportunities for partnership with best-in-class providers in pursuit of life-changing advances in eye care.
CVP is a premier ophthalmology management services organization formed in 2018 through a partnership with Cincinnati Eye Institute, one of the nation's largest ophthalmology practices, and Revelstoke Capital Partners, a Denver-based private equity firm. Virginia Eye Consultants joined the company in 2019, expanding the network to the Mid-Atlantic. CVP partner practices feature more than 150 industry-leading providers across all major subspecialties in ophthalmology and optometry. Partner practices and their affiliated providers are currently based in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and Virginia, with other regional and national partnerships now in discussion which are expected to add significantly to the growing network of 47 clinical centers, and eight ambulatory surgical centers. CVP strives to attract best-in-class physicians and staff and deliver the highest quality eye care in the industry. www.cvphealth.com
