Amulet Capital Partners and Shady Grove Fertility Form US Fertility
July 30, 2020
US Fertility (“USF”), the largest physician-owned and physician-led management services organization supporting leading fertility programs across the United States and internationally, announced it has created the largest physician partnership of reproductive endocrinologists in the U.S. Through this partnership, affiliated practices will gain access to best-in-class non-clinical, administrative, and technical platforms that streamline and simplify delivery of fertility care.
USF was formed earlier this year through a partnership between Amulet Capital Partners, LP (“Amulet”) and Shady Grove Fertility (“SGF”), the largest independent fertility practice in the U.S. SGF is joined by Fertility Centers of Illinois, Reproductive Science Center of the San Francisco Bay Area, and IVF Florida in becoming founding practices of US Fertility. The USF network currently comprises 55 locations across 10 states and, through its clinics and over 80 physicians, completed nearly 25,000 IVF cycles in 2018. In forming US Fertility, the clinical and practice management software assets of IntegraMed Fertility were acquired.
