Conceptions will be joining the RMA network of clinics known for their emphasis on pre-implantation genetic testing and single embryo transfer that has resulted in some of the highest live birth rate in the United States, with 83% of RMA patients under 35 bringing home a baby, as compared to the national average of 68.6%, recorded by the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (SART).
“RMA has been a leader in advancing the field of reproductive medicine, providing patients access to the latest technologies and the most highly qualified physicians to produce the best possible outcomes,” says Mark R. Bush, MD, FACOG, FACS, current Medical Director at Conceptions. “Our shared philosophy of patient-focused care, combined with clinical and laboratory excellence, makes the union of Conceptions and RMA a natural fit.”
Dr. Bush, who has been instrumental in building Conceptions into one of the leading fertility centers in Colorado and across the U.S., will be stepping down as its medical director but will continue to practice at the fertility center. Robert A. Greene, MD, FACOG, who has been a practicing physician at Conceptions for the last eight years, has been named the new Medical Director.
“Our team at Conceptions looks forward to joining the RMA family, a partnership that will strengthen and build on our ability to offer the highest level of reproductive care,” says Dr. Greene. “All our providers at Conceptions and RMA share the same focus and passion for doing everything we can to help our patients successfully grow their families.”
