I didn’t just buy a great machine for the job. I painstakingly designed the best system to get the purest air possible into the labs. Each of the 4 filtration systems has the same power as a Boeing 737 jet engine.
New York, NY (Vocus) October 21, 2010
New Hope Fertility Center is celebrating the opening of a West Side office (4 Columbus Circle, on the SW corner of W 58th St. and 8th Ave.). The new location has been a longtime dream of New Hope director Dr. John Zhang, and the design and technology that it incorporates builds upon 20 years of Zhang’s personal experiences visiting and studying leading IVF clinics around the globe.
Dr. Sherman Silber, the world’s leading expert on male infertility and a close colleague of Zhang’s said that he was impressed with how the new facility merges “the highest grade technology for infertility and reproduction, dwarfing other conventional IVF programs in both quality and cost-effectiveness.” The facility combines state-of-the-art IVF technology, ecologically sound design and construction, and a patient-centered layout.
Innovative ideas and superior engineering combine to create a uniquely robust and technologically advanced facility. When speaking about the air-filtration system, for example, Dr. Zhang explains, “I didn’t just buy a great machine for the job. I painstakingly designed the best system to get the purest air possible into the labs. Each of the 4 filtration systems has the same power as a Boeing 737 jet engine.” This is particularly important because the Columbus Circle location will not only function as New Hope’s primary Research and Development lab but will also house one of the largest oocyte donation and banking centers to date.
In addition, while the new location is in Columbus Circle, it is not in one of the looming skyscrapers that are often associated with the area. As a result, although patients will still have easy access and convenient transportation options, they will find that the actual facility is a quieter, more intimate space offset from the noisy hustle and bustle of the big city. Inside, with 15,000 square feet of ecologically designed green construction, the new location will boast three spacious waiting rooms and a relaxing recovery space. The expanded layout will mean less waiting time, quicker appointments, and ultimately a lower impact on patient schedules and daily lives.
The completion of the new location will dovetail with the launch of an online record-management system allowing all New Hope patients to have 24/7 access to their records. The West Side office will also open at 6:30am, earlier than its Park Avenue counterpart, to accommodate teachers and other working professionals who would prefer to make appointments before work.
The opening ceremony will be held on October 22, 2010 and the facility’s doors will officially open to patients on Monday, October 25th. The newest addition to New Hope Fertility Center’s New York City operation promises to be another big step forward for the clinic as well as the field of fertility treatment. This West Side expansion presents one of the most impressive and rigorous clinics to date, and we all share in the pride and excitement of continued hope.
