IN VITRO SCIENCES SETS GROWTH PLAN FOR ARIZONA

Avon, Connecticut, October 8, 2019 – In Vitro Sciences (IVS), a prominent network of fertility centers, recently acquired a majority interest in Advanced Fertility Care (AFC), an advanced reproductive services (RE) facility operating in the greater Phoenix area. The two entities are joining forces to expand the availability of RE services to expectant families throughout Arizona and the greater Southwest.

This partnership between IVS and AFC is unique to the specialty in that it will leverage IVS’s affiliation with Women’s Health USA (Whusa), a widely-recognized network of more than 600 ObGyn providers across the nation, including 50 providers in the Phoenix metropolitan area, to drive a new model of comprehensive and high-quality care delivery between obstetrics and fertility services.

Brian Pskowski, President of In Vitro Sciences, commented “In Vitro Sciences has been actively looking for partners who share our mission of creating widespread access to the highest quality care for patients facing fertility issues. Advanced Fertility Care has an excellent reputation in Arizona so it’s only natural to combine efforts to help them achieve their – and our - next level of expansion. We look forward to applying our respective strengths to advancing the care coordination in the reproductive field.”

Dr. Nathaniel Zoneraich, FACOG, the founder and lead physician for AFC, is energized by the new arrangement. “We’ve known for some time about the potential we have to expand our leadership in the Arizona market and beyond. IVS brings us the tools and bench strength to help us realize that goal more quickly. Together we will focus on broadening our strategies to better meet referring ObGyn demand and maximizing quality and convenience of patient care coordination.”

Under this new partnership, the entities will also begin to work on a best approach for geographic expansion throughout the region and on deepening the ancillary services they provide.

Advanced Fertility Care (AFC) serves patients from all over Arizona with the latest fertility treatment options including IUI, IVF, ICSI, embryo biopsy and genetic testing. With primary offices in Scottsdale and Mesa, AFC consistently demonstrates high pregnancy success rates, enabled by the best technology and treatment protocols available. AFC has been recognized as a Center of Excellence by every major insurer.

With a 22-year history in the fertility arena and a comprehensive suite of business management services, In Vitro Sciences (IVS) partners with reproductive endocrinology practices across the United States.  IVS got its start in partnership with Women’s Health USA, a national management service organization supporting more than 600 ObGyn providers around the U.S., with more than 50 in Arizona alone. The two entities partner to offer strategic management services for independent practices, including: implementing creative growth strategies supporting streamlined operational costs, payer alignment, merger and acquisition plans, marketing, and risk management services.  Its unique partnership model enables physicians and physician groups to maintain their independence while leveraging the resources of a national organization.
