Our Firm Our Firm


VHP, with offices in Los Angeles, CA and Stamford, CT, was founded by David Alpern and Kenton Rosenberry. We have spent our entire careers investing across many sectors within the healthcare services industry and possess deep domain expertise and relationships.


Our collective experience encompasses over 20 platforms with a strong track record of building leading companies. We endeavored to build a unique investment firm based on complete transparency and alignment with all constituents. We believe our model is differentiated and positions us as desirable partners.


Transparency and Alignment - As core tenets, transparency and alignment governs the structure of our firm as well as our day-to-day actions. We strive to be extremely honest and open in our dealings with companies and management teams. We are firm believers that true partnership does not exist without open communication and complete trust. We also seek to provide our investors more access and insight into our investment activities and decision making. We feel that investors should be treated as customers in the traditional sense, not a means to an end.


Longer-Term View - Our unique investor base provides us tremendous flexibility related to the investment period. Such flexibility allows us the opportunity to make longer-term decisions in the best interest of value maximization for all shareholders.


Value-Added Approach - Having spent our entire careers in middle market healthcare, we intimately understand the time, effort and resources required to build a leading platform. As such, we limit the number of platform investments per partner so that we have the time to allocate significant senior-level attention to each portfolio company. The end result is a true partner in value creation.


Economic Model - Our differentiated economic model promotes perfect alignment with companies, management teams and investors.


Our Firm





I was impressed by how the VHP team immersed themselves in the operations of the business for an extended period of time to truly understand the people, culture and vision. As an entrepreneur new to private equity, I appreciated their candor and that they lived up to every promise.

I was impressed with the efficiency and expediency of VHP in understanding our business and their vision for expansion. I believe that VHP represents a great strategic and capital partner, but also, just as important, a partner with whom I have a strong personal relationship and trust.
