WHY SHADY GROVE FERTILITY
When co-founders, Michael J. Levy, M.D., and Arthur W. Sagoskin, M.D., established Shady Grove Fertility more than 26 years ago, they had no idea that the practice would rise to national and international prominence as a Center of Excellence in the field of reproductive medicine, IVF, and infertility. The goal of the new practice was simple—to provide cutting edge fertility care in an environment that supported patients' physical, emotional, and financial needs—and to make future business and clinical decisions based on what is in the best interest of the patients.
By focusing on improving patients' overall experience and pregnancy outcomes, Shady Grove Fertility found itself aligned with an ongoing commitment to excellence. Initially, ensuring a positive experience and engaging in a quest to raise the bar of success for patients meant hiring the best of the best—from physicians and laboratory directors to nurses, social workers, and other health care professionals. It meant incorporating the latest medical technologies, investing in top of the line equipment and medical facilities, and continually finding ways to make treatment more affordable and accessible through guarantee programs such as the Shared Risk 100% Refund Program.
Today, the depth and breadth of the fertility program and the clinical experience of the physicians and scientists has been instrumental in establishing Shady Grove Fertility’s leadership position in the United States and making it the fertility center of choice among patients and referring OB/GYNs in the Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Baltimore metro-areas. Each year, our fertility specialists performed more basic and advanced treatment cycles than any other fertility center in the country—with success rates continuously well above the national average and high-risk, high-order multiple births (<1%) among the lowest in the nation.
