Modern Vascular's Origins & Leadership

The spirit of Modern Vascular began in the early 2000s, when a young healthcare professional and entrepreneur, Yury Gampel, organized a group of like-minded partners to create and build businesses under the motto: “a successful business is the business of excellence”.

Each member of this group has been making their own unique contributions to this business team resulting in Modern Vascular's inception in 2017. Yury Gampel, the CEO of the organization, brings endless energy and boundless vision. Ernest Tepman and Mark Rabinovich are the organizing force. Tim Murphy and Steve Springborn are the heart and compassion of the organization. The result is the corporate culture which rewards competence, energy, enthusiasm, talent, and compassion in every employee.

Dr. Steve Berkowitz, Chief Medical Officer

The clinical operations at Modern Vascular are led by Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Steve Berkowitz. Dr. Berkowitz comes to Modern Vascular from Banner Health in Phoenix, Arizona, where he served as the organization's Medical Director of Specialty Performance Improvement. Prior to that position, he was the Chief Physician Executive and medical group president for Northern Light Health, a nine-hospital system in Maine. He's also held the title of Chief Medical Officer at St. David's Healthcare, a six-hospital system in Austin, Texas and at the Central and West Texas Division of HCA, which was awarded the Texas Award for Performance Excellence and the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality award.

"I am thrilled to join the Modern Vascular team," Dr. Berkowitz said. "The organization is dedicated to saving patients from the unnecessary risk and cost associated with amputations. I have seen the work that is being done in their clinics and am convinced their treatments represent the gold-standard for PAD care.”
