Boston IVF, a Waltham, Massachusetts-based reproductive healthcare provider and research company, has acquired Utah-based Reproductive Care Center. With locations in Salt Lake City; Sandy; Layton Idaho Falls, Idaho; and Jackson, Wyoming, Reproductive Care Center provides fertility and family-building services.
As individuals and couples continue to seek reproductive care across the country at historically high levels during the COVID-19 pandemic, the new partnership enables Reproductive Care Center (RCC) to further enhance its standing as a clinical leader in the region,” RCC said in a release. “Boston IVF’s vast library of data analysis and clinical protocols lead to less time in treatment, less total cost and an improved chance for success. Additionally, RCC and future patients will benefit from Boston IVF’s robust scientific team and international research program, which regularly conducts pioneering clinical trials that contribute to industry-wide improvements in all aspects of care — including egg and embryo development.”
With the acquisition of RCC, Boston IVF continues to expand its national fertility network, which now includes over 30 reproductive endocrinologists in 30 centers nationwide. In March, Boston IVF acquired Ohio Reproductive Medicine.
“We are pleased to welcome such a respected leader in reproductive medicine to the Boston IVF fertility network,” said David Stern, CEO of Boston IVF. “Both Reproductive Care Center and Boston IVF have a shared vision to deliver the highest quality of integrated, holistic care and help our patients become parents in the shortest time possible. RCC’s long history of scientific innovation and clinical success aligns perfectly with our business model, philosophy and mission.”
Reproductive Care Center also announced the hire of reproductive endocrinologist Dr. Kristi Maas to its Salt Lake City-based team. Maas joins RCC from a leading Southern California fertility practice.
“It is very important for us to join forces with a leader that shares our vision of the future,” said Dr. James Heiner, Reproductive Care Center founder and chief reproductive endocrinologist. “The RCC/Boston IVF partnership offers us the unique opportunity to implement substantial clinical, scientific and operational enhancements that differentiate us from other centers and positively impact the lives of our patients.”
