NEW YORK, NY – NYU Langone Fertility Center, a nationally renowned provider of fertility care, announced today the opening of its new satellite location in the heart of New York City, NYU Langone Fertility Center NoMad. The Fertility Center is operated in partnership with NYU Langone Health, one of the nation’s premier academic medical centers, and is part of The Prelude Network, the largest provider of comprehensive fertility services in the U.S.
Located just north of Madison Square Park at 109 West 27th Street, the newly designed 5,000 square foot space welcomes new patient consultations, diagnostic evaluations – including bloodwork and ultrasounds, follow up appointments, and all routine non-surgical procedures. The NoMad office offers easy access to patients throughout New York and New Jersey and is steps away from subway stations (1, B, D, N, Q, R, W) and PATH trains (23rd & 6th Ave and 33rd & 6th Ave). Patients traveling through Penn Station or Grand Central Station can reach the calm, light-filled NoMad office within minutes via walk, subway or a short cab ride.
Spearheaded by Brooke Hodes Wertz, MD, MPH, the NYU Langone Fertility Center NoMad team will include Shannon DeVore, MD, and Jennifer Blakemore, MD. Specializing in all aspects of reproductive endocrinology and infertility, the team will care for patients undergoing treatment for in vitro fertilization (IVF), intrauterine insemination (IUI), fertility preservation (“egg freezing”), fertility assessments and third-party reproduction, among other services.
“We are proud to serve all families with world class treatment options,” says Dr. Brooke Hodes Wertz, Associate Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at NYU Langone Health, “and we are thrilled to expand the Fertility Center’s ability to provide comprehensive, compassionate fertility care in this new environment.”
The NoMad physician team represents the growth of the Fertility Center, as well as the industry’s female reproductive endocrinologists. It also represents how – despite the COVID-19 pandemic which forced the disruption of fertility care for many patients in New York City and across the nation – NYU Langone Fertility Center continues on a path of growth and remains steadfast in its commitment to deliver data-driven guidance and exceptional clinical care to patients seeking fertility treatment options.
“The fertility industry found itself in unprecedented waters, trying to navigate patient care in a COVID-19 world that kept patients and staff safe, while at the same time provided expert care to patients who were on a journey to build their families,” says TJ Farnsworth, Founder and CEO of Inception, the parent company to The Prelude Network. “We are fortunate that NYU Langone Fertility Center, like many clinics within The Prelude Network, has not only weathered this storm but continues to grow and provide patients with compassionate, comprehensive and expert care.”
“NYU Langone Fertility Center has helped thousands of patients realize their dreams of having a family, and we look forward to welcoming patients to our new NoMad location, where they will experience our excellent clinical outcomes and individualized fertility care,” says James A. Grifo, MD, PhD, Program Director NYU Langone Fertility Center/Chief Executive Physician Inception Fertility and professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at NYU Langone Health. “This office represents a new chapter of growth for NYU Langone Fertility Center and an expansion of our ability to lead NYC forward, making the world a better place one loved, cherished baby at a time.”
