CT Fertility Program Moving to State of the Art Facility
Below is the official press release for Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT)'s big news. I’m the unofficial announcement, which is cool because I get to do the happy dance.
We’re moving! So very excited to finally tell you all, officially.
We have had a wonderful home for over twelve years and are ready to move to someplace bigger, brighter, and able to handle a lab that is so unbelievably state of the art.
Happy, happy, happy.
It’s so much easier to leave behind the old place, knowing that the new place is being created so thoughtfully and with such purpose.
To serve our patients better.
To ensure that the fertility treatment they get at RMACT is our very best effort, which will only continue to get better and better.
So yes, I’m doing the happy dance. A brand new facility for the brand new year.
Looking forward to moving into our new home and really making it our own ~Lisa Rosenthal
RMACT Moves to a New, Medically-Advanced Facility
Fairfield County’s Leading Fertility Practice Moves Its Norwalk Location to iPark Corporate Offices at 761 Main Street, NORWALK, CT
In January 2015, Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut’s (RMACT’s) main location in Norwalk, CT is moving into a new, state-of-the-art facility to better meet patients’ needs for comprehensive fertility and reproductive health care. The new office offers more conveniences and a bright welcoming environment, but the most important improvement is the new embryology lab, which has the latest technological advances and twice the space of the current lab.
RMACT’s new location, which is on the second floor of the iPark office complex (761 Main Ave, Norwalk, CT, 06851), is 1.3 miles from the current office. It is centrally located in Norwalk with easy access from Route 7 and the Merritt Parkway. The Norwalk office will continue to be RMACT’s primary location, which hosts appointments with five board-certified reproductive endocrinologists, fertility nurses, therapists, a nutritionist, acupuncturists, financial advisors and the third party reproduction team. This is also where the medical team conducts all of the fertility practice’s advanced surgeries and procedures such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) and comprehensive chromosome selection (SelectCCS), as well as provides weekend monitoring.“RMACT’s priority is our patients,” says Dr. Mark Leondires, Medical Director at RMACT. “We decided to move in order to upgrade the patient experience at every level and to take advantage of the latest technology for our new embryology lab, which will help us continue to provide the best infertility care and pregnancy rates in the state. This is good news for the 1,300 new patients we see each year.”
RMACT’s excellent live birth rates are proof of its superior care and support for its patients. Frozen embryo transfer cycles are the future of reproductive medicine based on many advances in the past 10 years. At RMACT frozen embryo transfer delivery rates are higher across all age groups compared to the national rates (www.sart.org).
Since opening its doors in 2002, RMACT has helped shepherd into the world more than 5,000 babies from 46 states and eight countries. RMACT’s passion is to help everyone who wants to be a parent, succeed.
