Vancouver Canada-Olive Fertility Centre is proud to announce that they have been voted Best Fertility Clinic in Vancouver in the Georgia Straight Best of Vancouver Awards 2020.
We want to express our gratitude to all our wonderful patients who chose Olive to help them create their families and voted us the Best Fertility Centre in Vancouver for the sixth year in a row. We are also thrilled to have been voted in the top three for Best Local Employer.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have received Best Fertility Centre and Best Local Employer as it recognizes the level of care we provide for our patients and the kind of work environment we want for our staff. We really feel it is only by taking care of the people who work here that we can provide the excellent patient-centered care we are known for,” says Olive Fertility co-director, Dr Beth Taylor. “The fact that Olive Fertility has among the best pregnancy success rates in Canada is due to our award-winning lab, internationally acclaimed team of fertility experts, and outstanding staff. Everyone at Olive, from the receptionists at the front desk to the patient care coordinators, nurses, embryologists and doctors, strives to ensure that patients have the best experience possible.”
The rate of infertility in Canada has doubled over the last 20 years according to a Stats Canada report, in part because more women are delaying pregnancy until they are in their 30’s and even 40’s. “Frequently women don’t know that fertility declines more quickly after 35 and that a woman over 35 and her partner should have a full fertility workup if they haven’t conceived after six months of unprotected intercourse,” says Dr Taylor. “The biological clock starts ticking much more quickly at this age. So, the sooner a problem is diagnosed, the more quickly the treatment can start.”
Recent advances in fertility treatment and preimplantation genetic testing have improved the chances of achieving a pregnancy and having a healthy baby even for women over the age of 38.
Fertility evaluation and testing is fully covered by MSP in British Columbia with a referral from a family physician or a doctor at a walk-in clinic.
Olive would also like to congratulate Acubalance Wellness Centre for receiving the Georgia Straight Best of Vancouver Acupuncture, Naturopathic and Integrative clinic.
Located in Vancouver, BC, Olive Fertility Centre is one of Canada’s leading fertility clinics, offering an award-winning IVF lab, personal care teams, 70+ years of combined experience, and innovative programs including specialized genetic testing, egg freezing, and prenatal NIPT testing.
Inclusion of all gender and sexually diverse people is an important value of Olive Fertility Centre. We are continuously striving to create an environment of compassionate belonging where all of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community are supported, valued and respected.
