Ivy Fertility Acquires Dallas IVF in Latest Expansion

SAN DIEGO – Ivy Fertility has acquired its first clinic in Texas with Dallas IVF, a company with four locations in the state and named by Newsweek as one of the best fertility clinics in the nation last year.

Ivy Fertility’s network now includes 52 reproductive endocrinologists in 27 locations across 9 states.

Locally, Ivy Fertility operates the San Diego Fertility Center in San Diego, Del Mar and Temecula. Other California locations are the Fertility Centers of Orange County in Irvine, IVF Fertility Center and Los Angeles Reproductive Center in Encino, Nova IVF in Mountain View and Reproductive Partners Medical Group in Los Angeles, Redondo Beach and Westminster.

Dallas IVF, led by Dr. Brian Barnett, Dr. Lowell Ku, Dr. Dara Havemann and Dr. Sara Mucowski, has helped more than 13,000 babies be born since it was founded in 1997. The clinic serves the greater Dallas-Ft. Worth area with locations in Dallas, McKinney, Tyler and Frisco, which has a state-of-the-art in-vitro fertilization lab and surgery center.

Overall, more than 20% of patients at Dallas IVF have had previous unsuccessful cycles or were turned away for treatment at other clinics.

“Exceptional compassion is the cornerstone of Dallas IVF’s mission,” Barnett said in a statement from the Texas company. “When considering joining a larger network, finding a partner that shared our values of patient care and inclusivity was paramount. Ivy Fertility offers hope to families all over the world, and we are excited to contribute to that effort as the newest member of their collaborative network.”

Ivy Fertility CEO Lisa Van Dolah likewise had high praise in welcoming Dallas IVF to the company’s network.

“We believe that compassion and cutting-edge technology can and should go hand in hand, and Dallas IVF exemplifies that commitment,” she said. “Everyone deserves access to the most exceptional treatment, and we are looking forward to offering our expert care to aspiring parents in Texas and beyond.”

Dallas IVF announced its acquisition to its clients on its website.

“As we join forces with Ivy Fertility Network, we want to reassure all our patients and partners that our commitment to high-quality patient care remains steadfast,” the announcement reads. “The collaboration will enhance our capabilities but will not change the core of how we serve you.”

The statement also reassured patients that existing insurance participation would not change, and the partnership would leverage the companies’ collective strengths to enhance their treatment offerings.

“Our dedicated team of specialists remains dedicated to supporting you with the same personalized care and attention you have come to expect from us,” the statement continued.

New Partners, Pilot Launches

Ivy Fertility provides in-vitro fertilization treatments, donor egg and sperm services, fertility evaluation and testing, outcome-focused genetic testing, intrauterine insemination services and gestational surrogacy. The company states it also is committed to providing safe, welcoming, and proficient family-building services for the LGBTQ+ community.

In January, Ivy Fertility announced it was partnering with fertility specialty pharmacy SMP Pharmacy Solutions to serve patients at its 13 fertility clinics.

“Creating a partnership with SMP enhances the end-to-end patient experience and uplevels the expectations of what’s possible,” Ivy Fertility Chief Growth Officer Constance Rapson said in the announcement. “As an organization, we are committed to every moment in the journey. SMP helped us find ways to enhance our patients’ unboxing moment.”

The two organizations have launched co-branded packaging of fertility medications for patients as part of the partnership.

Up to 80% of the IVF process takes place outside of a fertility clinic, with patients responsible for tracking ovulation to injecting medication.

“Fertility treatment can be an incredibly challenging chapter in our patients’ lives, and that reality is always top-of-mind when we think about how we want Ivy to show up in the world,” Ivy Fertility Brand Manager Caroline Ferguson said.

“Thoughtful branding makes people feel taken care of. We want patients to know that their care team is with them in spirit, even when they’re administering their own treatment from home.”

The initiative comes after a successful pilot launch at Utah Fertility Center, an Ivy clinic with four locations throughout Greater Salt Lake City and Southwest Utah.
