Bergman Clinics acquired eye clinic Phaco Centrum
Bergman Clinics, the largest chain of clinics for specialist medical care in the Netherlands, acquired eye clinic Phaco Centrum from the founding ophthalmologists. The founders of Phaco Centrum continue their employment as ophthalmologists at Phaco Centrum. The acquisition is an important step in the development of Bergman’s eye care division. Bergman Clinics aims to further expand its network of eye care clinics in the coming years. Earlier this year, Bergman acquired Ozon Oogkliniek, also a provider of eye care.
