Cascadia Capital, a leading investment bank serving middle-market clients globally, is pleased to announce its role as the exclusive financial advisor to Northeast Wisconsin Retina Associates (NEWR) in its acquisition by Retina Consultants of America (RCA), a premier physician management services organization. This strategic partnership aims to enhance patient access and care within Wisconsin and surrounding underserved communities.

Expanding Access and Expertise in Retina Care

Northeast Wisconsin Retina Associates, with six board-certified physicians and six clinic locations, is poised to benefit significantly from joining the RCA family.

“We are excited to start our new journey as part of the RCA family of premier retina practices across the country,” said Rajeev Buddi, M.D., of NEWR. “This partnership will help us leverage RCA’s national level of expertise in multiple areas such as clinical trials, clinical pathways, and data analytics to enhance and expand the high-quality retina care that we provide to patients in Northeast Wisconsin. Additionally, Cascadia’s strategic, value-added advice has enabled an efficient transaction process while ensuring future success in our partnership with RCA.”

Commitment to Cutting-Edge Retina Care

Since its founding in 1993, Northeast Wisconsin Retina Associates has been dedicated to offering the most advanced therapies for diseases of the retina and macula. The board-certified, fellowship-trained retinal specialists at NEWR are committed to the protection, preservation, and restoration of vision.

Cascadia’s Role and Expertise

This transaction follows Cascadia Capital’s advisory role in RCA’s acquisition of Retina Consultants of Southern Colorado (RCSC) in 2023.

“Cascadia is proud to have worked alongside NEWR, a highly respected leader in retina care in the Midwest,” said Vitaliy Marchenko, Cascadia Director. “This highly targeted transaction was completed on a record timeline, underscoring our commitment to efficient and effective deal execution. This partnership enables both companies to advance their shared missions of enhancing patient care quality and accessibility.”

Physician partnership and consolidation has become one of the dominant trends in the healthcare landscape. Cascadia has been a key advisor to clinics and doctors interested in exploring or taking advantage of this market dynamic. Our team has worked with retina, ophthalmology, gastroenterology, fertility, dermatology, cardio and vascular, and many other physicians interested in exploring strategic opportunities.
