Retina Consultants of America Acquires Brown Retina Institute

January 03, 2022

Retina Consultants of America (RCA), a physician management services organization, has announced the addition of Brown Retina Institute in the San Antonio, Texas metropolitan area.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Brown Retina Institute joins RCA as a new partner who will help grow Retina Consultants of Texas' (RCTX) San Antonio presence and improve patient care through collaboration with Dr. Mein and his partners who presently serve the Alamo city.

Brown Retina Institute is the 20th practice that Retina Consultants of America has acquired since its foundation in January 2020.

Dr. Jeremiah Brown, Jr., a board-certified ophthalmologist, established Brown Retina Institute in 2010. He is also the President of the San Antonio Society of Ophthalmology and a Clinical Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio.

Dr. Brown has more than ten years of professional experience in vitreoretinal surgery after serving in the United States Army as a vitreoretinal surgeon and earning the Army Meritorious Service Medal.

“By joining forces with Retina Consultants of America, we will have the opportunity to offer our patients greater opportunities to participate in trials to develop better treatments for blinding eye diseases," said Dr. Brown.

"RCA also has the funding to ensure that our patients have access to the latest, most effective technology and diagnostic equipment. We are proud to be associated with this outstanding group of retina physicians and surgeons.”

With BRI’s two locations spanning from San Antonio to Schertz, RCA physicians will now provide patient care at 10 locations across the region.

Formed by Webster Equity Partners and based in Southlake, Texas, RCA is partnering with leading retina specialists who seek a strategic partner with the capital resources and expertise to invest in their practice infrastructure and position them for continued growth in their markets.
