Penn Fertility Care

Quality & Outcomes

Penn Medicine's interdisciplinary teams of professionals are dedicated to providing excellent care and service to all patients in a compassionate and respectful environment. Because patients have many health care providers to choose from, quality measures have become increasingly important when selecting a hospital or physician.

Penn Fertility Care's in vitro fertilization (IVF) success rate data in this section is part of an ongoing effort to increase the level of transparency around quality data and to help our patients make informed decisions about their health care.

The figures and tables on the success rates represent statistics for non–donor egg IVF cycles. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in collaboration with the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (SART), have been mandated by federal law to annually publish statistics from IVF programs.

Quality improvement is embedded in the culture at Penn and has become a way of life for its staff members. Penn's success with quality initiatives is not attributable to one department or person, but rather to the hard work of all staff members at every level of care, from environmental services to nursing staff to medical leadership and senior administration. Penn Medicine closely monitors the latest advances in data analysis, as well as recommended regulatory requirements and national benchmarks, to keep abreast of important developments that are critical to patients' quality of care.
