New York, NY, and Anaheim, CA, October 1, 2022 – Albaron Partners, LP (“Albaron”), a U.S. private equity firm focused on acquiring majority stakes of companies in the specialty healthcare services sector, today announced the formal launch of Innovation Fertility, a network of leading IVF clinics and laboratories, ahead of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (“ASRM”) Scientific Congress & Expo. in Anaheim, CA, October 22-26, 2022. This is the premier event for reproductive medicine, drawing top experts from around the world.

Innovation Fertility is led by a dynamic and seasoned team of reproductive health and business professionals with years of experience in building successful fertility practices. Their decades of expertise spans laboratory design, technology implementation, strategic planning, and operations support.

“We have been working toward this pivotal moment for some time,” says Dwight P. Ryan, CEO of Innovation Fertility. “Our mission is to leverage our collective experience to empower our partner practices and help deliver better outcomes for more families. But we want these practices to retain what makes them unique and trusted by their patient population.”    

The forward-thinking theme of the ASRM 2022 meeting — “Genes, Gametes, and Genetics: What Will the Future Hold?” —  is in-step with the organization’s new core messaging, which asks practices to imagine “What IF?” Innovation Fertility is on the other side of that question, offering greater efficacy, more support, and better technology. In a time when much value is often placed on the disruptive era of fertility care, Innovation places greater emphasis on following the science and embracing innovative, evidence-based solutions.

“For years, the leadership team has brought the best technology and laboratory practices to fertility clinics,” says Dr. Kathleen Miller, Chief Science Officer at Innovation Fertility. “We are known for being data-driven, science-first insiders. It’s exciting to have a brand that elevates our work and commitment to our practice partners, but we’re also proud to be more than a brand. Years of research, dedication, and big thinking have gotten us here.”

Though ASRM will mark the organization’s formal debut, Innovation Fertility has already been working with fertility practices across the country, giving them the autonomy to run day-to-day operations as they see fit, while bolstering them with the additional support they need to streamline internal operations and scale accordingly.
