Denver’s Vision Care Specialists Announces Deal to Acquire Englewood Eyecare


DENVER—Vision Care Specialists (VCS) announced Wednesday that it has acquired Denver eyecare firm Englewood Eyecare, which was founded by David J. Newman, OD, a leading Denver optometrist who has been in private practice for more than 30 years, according to the announcement. Financial terms of the transaction were not reported.

The Englewood Eyecare office will become the seventh location in the VCS group, which also includes Colorado offices in Aurora, Highlands Ranch, Lakewood, Parker, University Hills and downtown Denver. Founded in 1974, VCS has grown by way of following an operating model that is based upon physician-defined standards of care, according to the company.

“Having Dr. Newman and his staff join the VCS family creates great symmetry for our expanding company and for the Englewood community,” VCS chief executive officer Jeff Poe said in the announcement. “As part of a larger network, Dr. Newman will have access to more resources and be able to serve Englewood's growing community. His long-term stability and success in Denver make him and his practice a great fit for the Vision Care Specialists' family.”

Newman and his staff, including optician Nikky Roberts, will continue to provide vision care and personalized optometric service to patients at their office at 850 Englewood Pkwy, Suite 100A.

“I'm thrilled about the opportunity to join such an illustrious practice,” Newman said. “This is a perfect fit for Nikky and me, since Jeff Poe and his team share our vision of making patient care our top priority. Their large network of doctors and staff will help us offer even more services to our patients.”
