(PRESS RELEASE) BRENTWOOD, TE – Vantage Surgical Solutions, a leading provider of mobilized surgical solutions, today announces its acquisition of Ophthalmic Surgical Solutions (OSS), a Kansas-based company specializing in ophthalmic surgical equipment and services. This strategic move marks an important milestone in Vantage Surgical Solutions’ growth strategy and further solidifies its position as a premier provider in the ophthalmic surgery industry.

Founded in 2015, OSS is headquartered in Lecompton, Kansas. The company’s founder and CEO, Duane Kibbee, will bring his vision and experience to the Vantage leadership team as Clinical Manager.

Through the support of Pharos Capital Group, the acquisition of OSS brings together two storied industry leaders with more than 40 years of combined experience bringing ophthalmic surgery access to rural communities through partnerships with hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers. By joining forces, the companies aim to enhance their capabilities, expand their product offerings, and provide the scale and synergies necessary to reach a broader national audience.

“We are thrilled to welcome Duane and his highly successful organization, Ophthalmic Surgical Solutions, into the Vantage family and are excited about the geographical expansion this represents,” said Bradley Hill, CEO of Vantage Surgical Solutions. “This acquisition aligns perfectly with our growth strategy and strengthens our commitment to delivering surgical innovations and exceptional services to the market. By combining our expertise and resources, we will be able to provide a wider range of solutions and deliver unparalleled value to rural health communities. Thanks to our partnership with Pharos Capital Group, we anticipate additional acquisitions that are focused on improving patient outcomes, increasing access to care, and/or lowering the cost of healthcare.”

“Vantage Surgical Solutions has been a constant in the ophthalmic space for many years,” noted Kibbee. “I have found the two organizations to be extremely compatible and am excited about the synergies and scale that sharing resources and clinical adjacencies can offer our existing customers and the market in general. Based on the diligence process itself, I am confident the integration and combined go-to-market approach will be seamless.”

Customers of OSS can expect a smooth transition as the integration process takes place. Both companies are dedicated to ensuring uninterrupted service and support during this period of growth and expansion. The acquisition will also open new opportunities for customers to benefit from an expanded portfolio and enhanced clinical and technical support.

The company continues to expand its national presence delivering state-of-the art equipment and curated supplies to hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers, allowing them to deliver comprehensive care to their communities without the burden of huge CAPEX investments or inventory management.
