SHANGHAI, March 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Oregon Reproductive Medicine (ORM) is announcing a joint venture with Shanghai-based Travel Healthcare Limited (THL) to launch ORM China in the coming months. ORM is a globally recognized fertility center based in Portland, Oregon, and has one of the highest pregnancy success rates in the world for women and men who seek their assistance with reproductive needs.

Since 2014, ORM has worked closely with THL as its exclusive partner in China to provide patient education and extended services to Chinese families. Services include: arrangements for pre-cycle testing, travel support, translation services, integration with third-party egg donation and surrogacy agencies, etc. The team is also able to provide assistance for families regarding Chinese citizenship and entry requirements for the babies born through ORM's treatment programs in the United States. Through these extended services, the team helps provide seamless integration to ensure the best possible outcome for Chinese families.

"ORM has been working with families in China for almost 4 years, so developing an established presence in Shanghai was the next logical step," said Steve Parker, Director of Business Development at ORM. "ORM China will help us continue to serve our families by bringing our trusted fertility care directly to them. Our team of physicians and staff are thrilled to demonstrate our long-term commitment to China through ORM China."

The goal of ORM China is to offer a seamless patient experience across the Pacific. The staff in China will receive training according to ORM standards, and will be fully integrated with the US-based team. In the future, ORM China will expand its geographic footprint to other key cities in China, beyond THL's existing office in Shanghai.

ORM China will be fully operational in the next few months; during this transition period, THL will continue serving Chinese families through their Shanghai office.

March Fertility-Care Seminars in Beijing and Shanghai

ORM's Dr. John Hesla will be in Beijing and Shanghai March 2-7. Dr. Hesla is a reproductive endocrinologist specializing in the treatment and care of patients with endocrine and infertility issues. During his visit, he will hold two seminars for intended families interested in learning more about IVF, surrogacy, egg donation, genetic testing and other related reproductive services offered by ORM China:

  • Shanghai - March 4 – 13:30 PM, Hyatt on the Bund (No. 199 HuangPu Road, Shanghai)
  • Beijing – March 5 – 13:30 PM, Sofitel Wangda Beijing (No. 93 JianGuo Road, Beijing)

"There are many options available today to help families on their journey to parenthood and many couples and individuals are finding hope through the assistance of reproductive medicine," said Dr. John Hesla. "We look forward to the launch of ORM China to continue helping provide the best care possible to Chinese families."

ORM China and THL will co-sponsor the seminars for intended parents. Registration is now open through THL's hotline +86-21-6403-5658.
