LifeFlow Partners Enters Colorado and Oregon with Addition of CCVSA and OVS

New partnerships further strengthen the only doctor-led, doctor-owned platform for vascular and interventional physicians

Bend, Ore.; Denver, Colo.; and Chicago – January 12, 2023

LifeFlow Partners, a management services organization (MSO) that brings together leading independent vascular surgery and interventional practices throughout the United States, is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Colorado Cardiovascular Surgical Associates (CCVSA), serving patients in Denver, Lone Tree, Englewood, and Lakewood, Colo., and Oregon Vascular Specialists (OVS), located in Bend, Redmond, Klamath Falls, and Burns, Ore.

LifeFlow Partners allows partner physicians to focus on providing excellent clinical care, benefit from scale economies and administrative expertise, and increase the value of their practices.

Dr. Jason Jundt and Dr. Wayne Nelson of Oregon Vascular Specialists become cofounders in LifeFlow Partners, a doctor-centric MSO for vascular and interventional physicians.

“Continued reimbursement pressure and consolidation in healthcare cause more and more private practices to be acquired. When that happens, more physicians lose control of their practices and the full value of their efforts,” said Dr. Jason Jundt, a partner at Oregon Vascular Specialists and co-founder of LifeFlow. “We saw this happen to colleagues in dermatology, ophthalmology, and other specialties. Our goal is to help excellent physicians keep control of their practices and fully benefit from them.”

“LifeFlow Partners combines the best of private practice and the best of private equity,” said Dr. Marcus Kret, a partner at Colorado Cardiovascular Surgical Associates and LifeFlow Partners co-founder. “We are bringing together the clinical expertise of leading physicians with the business acumen of healthcare and private equity veterans.”

“We worked together to develop a radically different company—one that prioritizes patients’ needs, physicians’ preferences, and long-term value creation,” said Dr. Hyung Kim, CEO and co-founder of LifeFlow Partners. “It’s a privilege to support CCVSA and OVS and share in that value creation.”
