Shady Grove Fertility Richmond, Virginia Fertility Associates, and VAIVF & Andrology Center Announce Merger, Expanding Services and Improving Access to Care for Patients
Date:11/7/2018

The leadership teams of Shady Grove Fertility (SGF) Richmond, Virginia Fertility Associates, and VAIVF & Andrology Center announced today their merger, effective January 1, 2019. By combining the successful clinical, scientific, and operational approaches under the current brand SGF Richmond, this merger offers the opportunity to provide enhanced fertility services to more patients in southern Virginia and its surrounding areas.

Virginia Fertility Associates was formed through the merger of The Fertility Institute of Virginia and the Richmond Center for Fertility and Endocrinology in January 2017 to become the largest IVF practice in the Greater Richmond region, offering high quality reproductive healthcare that embodies a consistent, personalized, patient-centered philosophy. Drs. Steingold, Edelstein, Tidey, and Shah have been repeatedly recognized as “Top Docs” in Richmond Magazine and remain at the forefront of reproductive endocrinology, with well over 30 years of experience in helping individuals and couples start or expand their families. The VFA/VAIVF & Andrology Center practice stands behind its high success rates with a patient-care approach that complements well the model followed by SGF.

SGF Richmond was recently formed under the physician leadership of Dr. Erika Johnston-MacAnanny, who will serve as Medical Director of SGF Richmond.

The merged practice will become part of the Shady Grove Fertility network of fertility practices, with 32 locations throughout Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington, D.C., Georgia, and Florida.

"This collaboration is one we are excited about because it connects practices and providers who share similar goals and values. Both SGF and VFA/VAIVF & Andrology Center have a demonstrated commitment of helping patients access quality care, and both practices agree that the true measure of success is by the number of individuals and families we are able to help achieve the families of their dreams,” remarks Mark Segal, Chief Executive Officer of SGF.

The SGF Richmond laboratories will be directed by Dennis W. Matt, Ph.D., HCLD, current Scientific Director of the VAIVF & Andrology Center. Dr. Matt is an Associate Professor in OB/GYN at the Medical College of Virginia where he served as Scientific and Laboratory Director for 13 years prior to co-founding the Virginia IVF & Andrology Center. According to Dr. Matt, “Current SGF Richmond patients will benefit from full service, fully CAP-accredited, state-of-the-art embryology and andrology laboratory services performed by highly qualified embryologists and medical specialists closer to home.”

“Uniting our practices made perfect sense as we share much of the same business, medical, scientific, and operational values and culture. This merger synergistically combines the unique skills of each practice, offering a tremendous advantage to patients who are trying to conceive,” adds Dr. Johnston.

"We are delighted to be joining forces with SGF. We recognize their position as national leaders in reproductive medicine, as well as the clinical expertise and cutting-edge technology they’ve pioneered that have led to more successful pregnancies than any other center in the nation. Because they not only value clinical expertise but also practice a ‘patient first’ philosophy, it makes for an easy decision when choosing with whom to align,” says Anish A. Shah, M.D.

SGF Richmond provides a full range of diagnostic and treatment options to help heterosexual and same-sex individuals and couples achieve their family-building goals, as well as elective egg freezing and fertility preservation prior to cancer treatment.

"As the face of infertility continues to evolve, each member of the SGF Richmond medical team brings equal parts skillful clinical competency and genuine compassion to help more people build their families. Drs. Steingold, Edelstein, Tidey, Shah, and Johnston are all highly accomplished, highly respected contributors in our field, showing a demonstrated commitment to advancing science, education, and advocacy," adds SGF's Chief Medical Officer, Eric A. Widra, M.D.
