NORWALK, Conn. – Mayor Harry Rilling and the partners of Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT)celebrated the fertility practice’s new medically-advanced facility at a ribbon cutting ceremony at the iPark office complex.
The new office at 761 Main Ave., Suite 200, features one of the most advanced in vitro fertilization (IVF) labs in the U.S. and every aspect of the new space was built to elevate the patient experience.
"When people walk through this door... you give them a kind of hope they did not have before,” Mayor Rilling said. “Congratulations on your new place.”
Here are some of the features of the new office:
- One of the most advanced embryology laboratories in the country where specialized fertility procedures such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), egg cryopreservation, embryo biopsy, and blastocyst culture are conducted.
- More treatment rooms dedicated to RMACT’s Integrated Fertility and Wellness (IFW) program which offers services that care for the whole patient such as acupuncture, nutrition counseling, support groups and counseling for individuals and couples.
- More space to host classes including Fertile Yoga, nutrition seminars and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) workshops. Many are complimentary.
- More space for physician and nursing education seminars, as well as resident training for the three hospital resident programs in Fairfield County.
- Installation of a biometric security system, which is the latest technology in secure storage for cryopreserved embryos and oocytes.
- A more welcoming, bright architectural design with a focus on nurturing patients to improve their overall experience.
“This facility reflects our approach to fertility care, which is a combination of compassion and proven results,” said Dr. Mark Leondires, medical director at RMACT. “At every step of their fertility experience, we want our patients to have the best medical treatment and access to the latest technologies as well as to benefit from emotional support and whole-body care such as nutrition counseling and stress management. Ultimately, all of these factors contribute to success for our patients.”
Leondires originally chose Norwalk for the fertility practice’s primary location 12 years ago because Norwalk is the heart of Fairfield County at the cross section of I-95, Merritt Parkway and Route 7.
RMACT also has offices in Danbury, Stamford and Trumbull, and an affiliate New York fertility clinic serving Putnam and Dutchess counties.
In addition to Leondires, the RMACT team includes lead physicians Drs. Spencer S. Richlin and Joshua M. Hurwitz, as well as fertility specialists Drs. Cynthia M. Murdock, and Shaun C. Williams.
All five physicians are board-certified reproductive endocrinologists and are members of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology. More information is on its website and Facebook page.
