Physicians and Staff from SGF’s D.C.-Metro Area Hosted a Family Day at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. for Over 200 Families

What a powerful experience. I know all of us physicians are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to celebrate Family Day with our patients, their families, & our team. There were many tears flowing that day, & we are thankful for the opportunity to do the work that we do to help build families

Shady Grove Fertility, the nation’s largest fertility center with more babies born than any other center in the U.S., hosted a Washington, D.C.-Metro Family Day on Sunday, September 9, 2017. D.C.-Metro-based SGF physicians, Drs. Jason Bromer, Paulette Browne, Frank Chang, Kate Devine, Joseph Doyle, Melissa Esposito, Rachana Garde, Stephen Greenhouse, Eric Levens, Shruti Malik, Kimberly Moon, Gilbert Mottla, Anitha Nair, Jeanne O'Brien, Barbara Osborn, Lauren Roth, Arthur Sagoskin, and Eric Widra, along with many Shady Grove Fertility staff hosted nearly 200 families for a day of fun and celebration at the National Zoo.

“It can be heart-wrenching to see couples who come to us with little hope left. We do everything that we can and, for the vast majority, we are able to help them realize their dream of a family. Family Day, for us, is a uniquely special day when we have the opportunity to truly see our patients’ dreams come true. We can see firsthand the smiles on their faces as they hold their child,” remarked Dr. Bromer, of SGF’s Frederick and Hagerstown, MD offices.

Dr. Doyle, of SGF’s Rockville, MD location, added, “What a powerful experience. I know all of us physicians are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to celebrate Family Day with our patients, their families, and our team. There were many tears flowing that day, and we are thankful for the opportunity to do the work that we do to help build families.”

Families lined up with each of the Shady Grove Fertility physicians to have their pictures taken and express their mutual appreciation and gratitude.

“Within our patients we see tremendous grit and resilience. Our patients inspire us and reignite our belief in the power of perserverence every day. Family Day celebrates their continued hope in the face of adversity and challenge,” shared Dr. Levens, of SGF’s Annandale, VA office.

“Thank you, Shady Grove Fertility, for a super-fun family day event today at the National Zoo! It was nice to see familiar faces and inspiring to see so many little miracles (and their exhilarated and exhausted parents) running around on this beautiful day,” remarked an SGF patient who attended.

Shady Grove Fertility is encouraging its community in the D.C.-Metro region and all of its 28 locations throughout Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Georgia, and Washington, D.C., to never underestimate the power of hope, belief, and community. “Taking care of patients and knowing that they trust us is such a privilege and we never take our work lightly. We all need a support network in order to overcome life’s challenges. And infertility is no different,” added Dr. Greenhouse, of SGF’s Fair Oaks and Haymarket, VA offices.

While this event has passed, SGF would still like to spread the love and inspiration by asking patients to share their story and post photos captured from Family Day to their favorite social community using the hashtag #SGFstrong.

Shady Grove Fertility will be hosting additional family days in the Baltimore-Metro and Pennsylvania regions later this fall.
