Inception Fertility Ventures Partners with Houston Fertility Specialists

Together with its existing Houston operations, the company's expanded geographic scope will enable them to help create even more families in and around the greater Houston area.


HOUSTON, May 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Inception Fertility Ventures has partnered with Houston Fertility Specialists (HFS) with a plan to merge HFS with its Aspire Fertility Houston operations, allowing them to provide fertility services to a much broader market. The merged business will now operate fertility clinics in Houston, Sugar Land, Katy, and Clear Lake, all under the Aspire Fertility brand.

HFS was founded in 1986 by Reproductive Endocrinologist George M. Grunert, MD, and Lab Director Alfred Wun, PhD, HCLD. For more than 30 years, HFS has been helping patients achieve their dream of starting or expanding their family. HFS is one of the largest fertility practices in the United States, with four locations, seven physicians, and more than 7,000 babies born. In the new venture, Dr. Grunert will continue to serve as the IVF Program Director and Dr. Wun as the Lab Director. Dr. Grunert, Dr. Wun, and the entire HFS team look forward to the partnership and the opportunity to expand this premier IVF program throughout Houston.

In the two short years since they opened their doors Aspire Fertility Houston has successfully served patients in the Texas Medical Center and surrounding areas, with a focus on patient experience and clinical excellence. HFS's clinical expertise, combined with long-standing referral relationships in areas of Houston that Aspire does not currently serve, provides a market-leading proposition for the combined practice. The combined venture will enhance the company's future growth and performance. Immediate plans to expand into other areas of the greater metropolitan Houston area are already underway.

 

HFS is an impressive operation with an amazing team of physicians, nurses, and support staff, and we couldn’t have chosen a better partner. We will work closely together to seamlessly merge our exceptional clinical services while expanding our geographic presence. The true strength of our partnership is that Aspire and HFS share a vision in that our common purpose is to achieve the highest bar in patient experience, science and medicine—no exceptions.
— TJ Farnsworth, Inception's Founder and CEO
We couldn’t be more excited to join forces with Aspire. We share a common culture in that our patient’s experience is just as important as their outcome. To that end, it is important to note that only our name will change; patients will continue to receive 5-star care from their physician and support staff.
— Dr. Randy Dunn, HFS managing partner
