EyeCare Partners formed a partnership with Novus Clinic, Corrective Eye Center, and Retina Specialists of Ohio (RSO), expanding its presence in Northern Ohio. Furthermore, the company has plans to construct a 16-exam lane clinic and a new ambulatory surgery center (ASC), both of which will be used to assist patient eye care in the Cleveland area starting in 2023.
Following the expansion in Northern Ohio, the network also warmly welcomes Kristina Thomas, MD, a well respected specialist in the field of cornea and cataracts who will be working out of Novus Clinic and Corrective Eye Center.
“As EyeCare Partners continues to grow, we remain focused on providing seamless care for all patient needs from comprehensive eye exams to specialty surgery," Kari Holloway, PhD, ECP’s Ophthalmology Division President, said in a company news release.
“Novus Clinic, Corrective Eye Center and Retina Specialists of Ohio are three specialty practices that will further support our goal of providing the best service to patients. Additionally, with Dr. Kristina Thomas joining our network we continue to strengthen our expertise in cornea and cataract surgery, further underscoring our commitment to elevating eye care across every specialty. We’re excited to see what we can accomplish together.”
With more than ten years of clinical experience, Dr. Thomas is a well renowned ophthalmologist who has attained board certification. In 2012, she was chosen by Cleveland Magazine as one of Northeast Ohio's Best Doctors. She finished her residency in ophthalmology at Case Western Reserve University after earning her medical degree from Drexel University College of Medicine. She then pursued fellowships in cornea, external ocular disease, and refractive surgery at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
“I’m pleased to join ECP in a role that allows me to bring my corneal and cataract expertise to a group of elite practice partners providing top-notch eye care services that meet the needs of our diverse, local communities," said Dr. Thomas. “The ECP network continues to rapidly grow and innovate, and I look forward to working together with this team to make a significant impact on patient care.”
