PECAA and OD Excellence Merge

Independent optometrist alliance group PECAA (Professional Eye Care Associates of America) announces a merger with practice management group OD Excellence, effective immediately.


The newly merged group will be headquartered in Portland, OR, and will retain leadership

and staff from both PECAA and ODX (OD Excellence). According to the group, members of both organizations can expect to see enhanced service offerings in the coming months.


“Our merger with PECAA is a perfect match for both companies,” says Jerry Sude, O.D., chairman and CEO of OD Excellence. “With all the consolidation currently taking place in our industry the timing is perfect. The additional benefits that PECAA and ODX members can expect to receive in the very near future will lead to increased practice revenue and reimbursements at the same membership fee they are paying now. I am excited to continue working with ODX members and sharing new benefits going forward.”


The combined group plans to leverage the service offerings and vendor partnerships of

both organizations to provide members with additional education opportunities, camaraderie-building events, and consulting services. The timing of those integrations will be announced to members at a later date.


“The PECAA Team is excited to join forces with OD Excellence,” says Jamie Hughes, PECAA

general manager. “Both organizations share a mutual commitment to helping practices thrive in today’s competitive environment, and this partnership will provide members with even more tools to help fuel practice success. We look forward to working with the ODX team and their members moving forward.”
