After six months of careful planning, Flinders Fertility is relocating from the Flinders Medical Centre to the TechInSA bio-science hub at Thebarton.
Flinders Fertility has been working towards this move for some six months and it is not a response to the recent power blackouts.
Flinders Fertility Chief Executive Stefan Moro says the new premises will be one of the most advanced embryology laboratories in Australia, constructed to meet the latest international quality and performance standards.
“We have written to our patients and doctors with this news and are confident the custom-made facilities will allow us to deliver improved patient service, laboratory efficiency and even more secure storage of our patients’ reproductive materials in one of the safest, most stable and secure fertility facilities in Australia, strategically located central to major hospitals including the Royal Adelaide and FMC.
“The move also sees Flinders Fertility co-located with our strategic Pre-implantation Genetic Screening (PGS) partner, Reproductive Health Sciences Pty Ltd, which should also reduce the wait for biopsy results and assist our patients on their journey to parenthood.
“Over the next four weeks, reproductive material will be safely transferred from FMC to the new facility by specialist medical transport. From November 21 clinical services will resume at our Thebarton facility. We believe this central location and its ample car parking will be of further benefit our patients,” Mr Moro says.
