On August 1st, 2012 Pacific Fertility Center opened the Pacific Fertility Egg Bank (PFEB), the first freestanding donor egg bank in northern California. The Pacific Fertility Egg Bank concept burgeoned in 2006 as a result of advancements in egg freezing technology. After much innovative work in the PFC Laboratory perfecting the freezing technique of 'vitrification', our first recipients of frozen donor eggs were pregnant in 2007 and delivered in 2008. Over the ensuing four years, additional research and refinement of laboratory techniques continued, resulting in the development of the Pacific Fertility Egg Bank.

Held in Los Angeles, the two-day event featured a large exhibit hall and about 20 hour-long programs and panels with some of California's top fertility experts and family-building professionals.

Pacific Fertility Center (PFC) has long been at the forefront of providing fertility services for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community.  Helping the LGBT community create healthy families directly aligns with our core mission which is “to provide patients with ethical, individualized, and compassionate fertility care.”

In constructing the strategic goals for 2012, the PFC MDs voiced a deep commitment to widen their reach to the LGBT audience.  The objectives were two pronged:  first, to educate the LGBT community about available fertility resources, and second, to provide the tools to manage the issues and perceived obstacles that accompany this important, life changing decision.

“As a unified team, guided by the highest ethical standards, we provide our patients with individualized and compassionate fertility care” is our mission statement here at Pacific Fertility Center (PFC).

PFC is one of the largest single-site fertility centers in the U.S. This offers many advantages, such as the ability to provide a full range of fertility services with constant physician coverage—7 days a week, 365 days a year. It also affords us the volume to adequately evaluate our success and outcomes on a timely basis.

Complementing the assets of PFC's size, we are currently introducing Patient Care Teams to provide even more personalized, coordinated services. Each of our 6 physicians will now head a Patient Care Team, a dedicated team of staff devoted to that doctor's patients.

PFC Egg Donor Lynn’s experience with egg donation at PFC

I never felt alone
“My entire experience as an egg donor was amazing. I felt very blessed to have the unique opportunity to provide a wonderful, deserving couple with my eggs. Giving my recipients the chance to become parents to a healthy baby was my privilege and I would gladly do it again. PFC upheld their reputation for being the best agency in the US. The staff is professional, well-trained, friendly, and always helpful. I never felt alone in this process. The entire PFC team is like a family. I felt safe and comfortable and everything was taken care of when I needed anything. I can’t wait to hear the outcome…my prayers are with my recipients every day; like I said, this entire process was awesome.” Testimonial from Lynn – PFC Egg Donor
