RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. – VSP® Vision Care, the only national not-for-profit vision benefits company, today announced it has acquired iCare Health Solutions, an integrated specialty network and administrator of comprehensive ocular care services, from Pine Tree Equity Partners, a private equity firm focused on the investment in and expansion of healthcare services businesses. iCare Health Solutions’ management team will continue in their roles and the company will operate independently while leveraging VSP Vision Care’s expertise and resources to grow its business.

“As Florida’s largest integrated eye care provider, iCare Health Solutions further strengthens our presence in the Southeast through their exceptional delivery of patient-centered care for health plans and their members,” said Kate Renwick-Espinosa, president of VSP Vision Care. “Together, we remain committed to preserving and enhancing the relationship between doctors and their patients.”

Through partnerships with health plans and multi-specialty clinics, the company serves nearly three million members through a robust network of optometrists and ophthalmologists, including nearly 60 held practices and ambulatory surgical centers throughout Florida.

“With VSP’s support, we’ll continue our work to simplify vision care delivery while offering more opportunities to our providers and expanded services to our members,” said Lee Stern, CEO of iCare Health Solutions. “We’re excited to help more people see better, feel better and live healthier lives.”
