January 26, 2022

 

VANCOUVER, Canada- Olive Fertility Centre is delighted to announce that they are expanding the Olive Fertility family with Olive Fertility clinics opening in Victoria and Kelowna in January 2022.


“We are very excited to help patients across British Columbia grow their families.” Says Dr. Beth Taylor co-found and co-director of Olive Fertility. ”With Kelowna Regional Fertility Centre joining Olive Fertility, and a new clinic opening in Victoria, in addition to our clinics in Vancouver and Surrey, we will be able to offer BC patients comprehensive fertility care close to home, whether they live on Vancouver Island or in the Interior.”


Infertility has been increasing across BC and Canada with 1 in 6 Canadian couples struggling to conceive. Olive Fertility has seen a surge in demand for both fertility treatment and egg freezing during the pandemic. “The number of patients we have seen for IVF and egg freezing has increased by over 30%.” says Dr. Taylor.


For more than a decade, Olive Fertility has enjoyed a collaborative partnership with Dr. Kathy Wise and the team at Kelowna Regional Fertility Centre and is thrilled that KRFC has officially joined Olive and will be known as Olive Fertility Centre, Kelowna.


Like Vancouver, Kelowna has seen the demand for fertility treatment increase. “Joining with Olive Fertility will allow us to meet the growing needs of the Okanagan and surrounding communities.” says Dr. Kathy Wise, clinical director of Olive Fertility Kelowna.


Olive Fertility Victoria is located at 214-911 Yates Street with two full-time Reproductive Endocrinologist-Infertility Specialists (REIs): Dr. James Graham and Dr. Ginevra Mills. The clinic has an andrology lab, ultrasound suite and nursing support for most treatments except IVF. Dr. Graham and Dr. Mills are currently accepting patients.


“We are looking forward to providing outstanding, patient centred fertility care for all patients on the Island, including people experiencing primary or secondary infertility, gender and sexually diverse people, and beyond.” Says Dr Graham, clinical director, Olive Fertility Centre Victoria.
