EyeSouth Partners has announced its 40th affiliation with its partnership with Community Eye Care Specialists. The affiliation marks EyeSouth’s first in New York and third in Pennsylvania, according to a news release.1

Community Eye Care Specialists is led by Gordon Wuebbolt, MD, and Beau Froebel, MD, who have been serving patients for almost 30 years in Pennsylvania. “Partnering with EyeSouth is an exciting opportunity for our practice,” Wuebbolt said in the release. “The doctors and staff at Community Eye Care Specialists are proud to provide quality comprehensive vision services [to] patients in Pennsylvania and New York for over 27 years. EyeSouth shares our passion to offer the best possible treatment plans using the most advanced technology while providing undivided attention to our patients and their needs. This partnership will expand on Community Eye Care Specialists’ mission to help our patients live their best lives through compassionate, patient-centered eye care.”

EyeSouth Partners provides eye care–focused management services, which assist with network building for US eye care services. The company’s network consists of 40 practices and more than 300 eye care providers that administer medical and surgical eye care services in more than 180 locations.
