Since 1988, HRC Fertility has been committed to assisting ambitious parents in realizing their dream of starting a family. Their Fertility Specialists deliver world-class, compassionate care in cutting-edge facilities, with the goal of making your aspirations a reality through comprehensive care and economical payment alternatives. HRC Fertility's mission includes assisting you in being emotionally and physically prepared to build your family, because a healthy baby begins with a healthy parent. Infertility, like many other traumatic events, can have a negative impact on a person's mental health and quality of life. For many people, the idea and desire to build a family is a fundamental part of one’s culture, identity, life goals and expectations. HRC Fertility recognizes this and offers patients access to its Emotional Wellness program, which offers a multidisciplinary approach and services ranging from brief counseling sessions and intermittent emotional support before and after clinic procedures/surgeries to education on coping skills and relaxation techniques to help you build your family.

HRC has historically been at the forefront of technological advances. In 1989, it established one of the first preimplantation genetics testing programs for sex linked gender disorders. In addition, they were one of the first clinics to offer micromanipulation for the treatment of male factor infertility.

HRC Fertility currently has three state-of-the-art embryology laboratories located in Pasadena, Encino, and Newport Beach. The goal of each laboratory is to produce the best possible embryo that will achieve a successful pregnancy. In order to achieve this, we create the most stress-free environment possible that mimics physiological conditions that enable the embryo to grow.
