Vivere Health, LLC Breaks Ground on New Fertility Center in Louisiana

Vivere Health, LLC broke ground today on the new, state-of-the-art Vivere — Audubon Surgery Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, marking continued progress in building the nation’s leading network of Fertility Centers of Excellence (CoE) dedicated to the highest quality patient care and outcomes. The addition of this state-of-the-art fertility clinic will be the fifth Vivere CoE, the first in Louisiana, and will enable Vivere to meet the fertility needs of metro New Orleans and the surrounding areas.

This facility will be the first that Vivere is able to custom build to reflect it’s business model and will serve as the clinic model for future national expansion.

Expanding the Model

The construction of the New Orleans facility, which is estimated at $3.5 million, is a milestone in developing the Vivere brand and the company’s business model, which allows physicians to focus on medicine while Vivere handles the marketing and business needs of the facility.

“The acquisition of facilities requires a certain amount of coordination and adaptation of the Vivere model,” said Joe Cashia, President and CEO of Vivere Health, LLC. “This facility will be unique because we are constructing it from the ground up. Every detail will be reflective of the thought we put into the Vivere model of care, from our family-focused patient waiting room to our cutting edge surgical suites.”

The Vivere model calls for the business end of the center to be supported by the company, allowing physicians to focus on medicine and patient care. The facilities themselves are meant to be a departure from the traditional doctor’s office waiting room – with a “family living room” feel and calm, relaxing environment. Most notably, Vivere clinics combine surgery centers and IVF laboratories in the same building to streamline the processes of IVF and other fertility treatments, leading to improved patient outcomes and increased pregnancy rates.

About the Facility

The Vivere – Audubon Surgery Center will be led by Reproductive Endocrinologists, Dr. Ron Clisham and Dr. Lindsay Wells of Audubon Fertility and Reproductive Medicine, a well-respected fertility practice located in the heart of uptown New Orleans.

Vivere Health is building the Vivere-Audubon Surgery Center in partnership with Dr. Lindsay Wells and Medical Executive Partners. The facility will feature a two operating room surgery center and IVF laboratory, and is scheduled to open early 2013.

“We are honored and delighted to be partnering with two of the leading doctors in IVF world, Dr. Lindsay Wells and Dr. Ron Clisham. We look forward to a very prosperous growth of yet another patient-centered Fertility Center of Excellence.”

The combined surgery center and laboratory will enable the affiliated physicians to deliver the latest treatments technologies in female and male fertility using cutting-edge technology. Services offered at the Vivere-Audubon Surgery Center will be expansive and will include In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD), Intro Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), and embryo and egg freezing.

The facility will be located at 2701 Napoleon Ave, New Orleans, Louisiana. Information about Dr. Clisham and Dr. Wells can be found
