Eyecare Business Groups to Merge




PORTLAND, OR – Professional Eye Care Associates of America has announced a merger with practice management group OD Excellence.

The deal was effective July 9. The newly merged group will be headquartered in Portland, OR, and will retain leadership and staff from both PECAA and ODX.

Members of both PECAA and ODX “can expect to see enhanced service offerings in the coming months,” according to a press release.

“Our merger with PECAA is a perfect match for both companies,” said Dr. Jerry Sude, chairman and CEO of OD Excellence. “With all the consolidation currently taking place in our industry the timing is perfect. The additional benefits that PECAA and ODX members can expect to receive in the very near future will lead to increased practice revenue and reimbursements at the same membership fee they are paying now. I am excited to continue working with ODX members and sharing new benefits going forward.”


The combined group “plans to leverage the service offerings and vendor partnerships of both organizations to provide members with additional education opportunities, camaraderie building events and consulting services,” according to the release.

“The PECAA Team is excited to join forces with OD Excellence,” said Jamie Hughes, PECAA general manager. “Both organizations share a mutual commitment to helping practices thrive in today’s competitive environment, and this partnership will provide members with even more tools to help fuel practice success. We look forward to working with the ODX Team and their members moving forward.”
