Even in blizzard conditions, you can still count on the dedicated staff of Shady Grove Fertility when it comes to delivering exceptional, uninterrupted care to our patients.

Shady Grove Fertility Stays Open 365 Days a Year

Our patients count on us and we count on each other. Because of that commitment, we stay open 365 days a year, no matter what Mother Nature has in store. When inclement weather is forecasted, our team starts early, preparing and planning to care for patients through the weather. Each Shady Grove Fertility office makes the difficult decision to stay open or to close based on the condition of their location and what’s in the best interest of the patients and staff.

When a tough decision comes down to an office closing, it’s an all-hands-on-deck operation to make sure every patient is cared and provided for. We make sure all non-critical appointments are either rescheduled or relocated.

At Shady Grove Fertility, Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

During Blizzard 2016, while some offices were forced to close for safety reasons, our surgery centers and embryology laboratories remained open. All time-sensitive procedures, such as egg retrievals, occurred at each of these locations, allowing patients to continue treatment cycles as planned.

To stay open, dozens of dedicated staff stayed in local hotels so they were able to get into work to take care of their patients. One team member recalls, “Physicians and staff walked from their snowed-in neighborhoods, others picked up stranded teammates, and many worked through the weekend and into all hours of the night to be sure every last detail was thought of and our patients’ best interests came first. We call it “the Shady Grove way.” It’s doing whatever it takes no matter what. With Shady Grove Fertility, creating families and being a family is our mission.
