Sunvera Group, a management services organization in Bingham Farms that provides support services to ophthalmology practices across multiple subspecialties, has formed two new partnerships with Advanced Ophthalmology Associates in Clawson and Clavenna Vision Institute in Birmingham.
Advanced Ophthalmology Associates provides comprehensive eyecare, including care for those with glaucoma, diabetes, and macular degeneration. In addition, it provides surgical eyecare, including cataract surgery.
“Over the last 20 years, my team and I have prided ourselves in delivering world-class care for our patients,” says Dr. Barbara Kuczynski of AOA. “We have seen the success of Sunvera’s current partnerships and are excited to enter our next phase of growth together.”
Clavenna Vision Institute provides medical and surgical eyecare for patients throughout the metro Detroit area. Partners Dr. Carl Clavenna and Dr. Gregory Fitzgerald and their team offer patients comprehensive eyecare, treatment for conditions like glaucoma, diabetic eye disease and macular degeneration.
It also offers surgical eyecare, including LASIK and cataract surgery. In addition, they provide dry eye treatment and medical Botox for conditions like blepharospasm (eye twitching) and hemifacial spasm (face twitching).
“Our team is eager to collaborate with Sunvera Group, allowing us to share best practices, achieve operational efficiencies and enhance the growth of our practice,” says Dr. Clavenna of CVI.
“We are excited about this partnership and continuing our tradition of providing industry-leading eyecare for patients in our community,” says Fitzgerald.
Sunvera Group continues to grow its footprint throughout the Midwest, with seven new partnerships in Michigan and one in Cleveland since 2020. It currently supports 11 ophthalmology clinics and two ambulatory surgery centers in those locations. It is a portfolio company of Ridgemont Equity Partners based in Charlotte, N.C.
“We deeply value the relationships we build with top-performing ophthalmologists and are committed to expanding patient access to quality eye care in Michigan and beyond,” says Greg Nodland, CEO of Sunvera Group. “Drs. Kuczynski, Fitzgerald, Clavenna and their teams have been an important part of the metro Detroit community and bring tremendous value to our expanding platform.”
