FYidoctors Announces Merger with Family Eyecare
FYidoctors announced a merger with Family Eyecare. Located along the busy Edmonton-Calgary corridor in Central Alberta, the announcement highlights FYidoctors’ first clinic merger in the area.
Founded in the late 1940s by WWII veteran Dr. Les Walker, Family Eyecare was purchased by husband-and-wife duo, Dr. Kevin Engel and Dr. Angela Power in 1999. Joined by associate, Dr. Samantha Sperber in 2017, the clinic holds a longstanding reputation in the community for its highly trained staff, and the personalized approach they take to the vision care of its patients.
“FYidoctors is committed to maintaining a doctor-led approach to eye care which keeps patient needs as the top priority,” said Dr. Alan Ulsifer, CEO and Chairman of FYidoctors. “We are pleased to partner with Family Eyecare who subscribes to these same values and has been doing so for over 70 years.”
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to join the FYidoctors’ family and what this will mean for our patients and their eye health moving forward,” said Dr. Engel. The sentiment was echoed by Dr. Power, who added, “not only will this new partnership provide our practice with a variety of new tools and resources, but it also gives us access to the largest optometric network in the world – which will result in efficiencies and cost savings that ultimately benefit the residents of Lacombe.”
Recognized for its outstanding commitment to vision care in the community, Family Eyecare has been twice nominated for local business of the year in Lacombe, Alberta and is known for its contribution to a variety of philanthropic causes across the region.
