Clinic Services and Profile
Consumers can find fertility clinic success rates and clinic profiles at www.cdc.gov/art/artdata/index.html.
The information in this section is provided to help consumers navigate and understand the information presented online, explore clinic services, see the types of patients each clinic treats, and understand fertility clinic success rates based on the latest data from the National ART Surveillance System. To view pooled data from all US reporting clinics, select the link above or below the map on the main page. Pooled data from all reporting clinics provide a national summary of patient and cycle characteristics and ART success rates from all reporting clinics in the United States.
The Clinic Services and Profile navigation tab provides an overview of clinic services, the clinic’s contact information, a map showing clinic location, the medical director’s name, and summary statistics.
A Clinic Services and Profile table includes the following information:
A clinic may have a donor egg program for ART in which a donor egg is retrieved from one woman (the donor) and fertilized with either partner or donor sperm, and then the resulting embryo is transferred to the uterus of another woman (the recipient). A “Yes” indicates the clinic provided the service, and a “No” means they did not.
A clinic may have a donor embryo program using embryos that were donated by other patients who previously underwent ART treatment and had extra embryos available. A “Yes” indicates the clinic provided the service, and a “No” means they did not.
A clinic may have a program for freezing embryos for potential future use. A “Yes” indicates the clinic provided the service, and a “No” means they did not.
Policies regarding ART services using gestational carriers (also known as surrogates) vary from clinic to clinic. Some states do not permit clinics to offer this service. A clinic may have a gestational carrier program. A “Yes” indicates the clinic provided the service, and a “No” means they did not.
The Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) is an affiliate of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). It is a professional society composed of clinics and programs that provide ART. A “Yes” indicates the clinic was a member at the time of reporting, and a “No” means it was not.
A clinic laboratory may be accredited by at least one of three specified accrediting organizations: the College of American Pathologists, The Joint Commission, or the New York State Tissue Bank Program. A “Yes” indicates the clinic had an embryo laboratory accreditation at the time of reporting. A “No” indicates that the embryo laboratory was not accredited by any of these organizations or did not provide proof of accreditation to CDC. A “Pending” means that the clinic submitted an application for accreditation to one or more of the three organizations and provided proof of such application to CDC. Please note that effective in 2021, the New York State Tissue Bank Program will no longer be a recognized accreditation body for embryo laboratories. More information on laboratory accreditation for specific clinics is provided in Appendix C: 2019 Reporting Clinics, by State.
Because ART consists of several steps, an ART procedure is typically referred to as a cycle of treatment rather than a procedure at a single point in time. Total cycles are the total number of ART cycles a clinic started.
Fertility preservation cycles are the number of cycles started with the intent of freezing and banking all eggs or embryos for at least 12 months for future use.
The total number of pregnancies that resulted from ART cycles. Since some pregnancies end in a miscarriage or stillbirth, the number of pregnancies may be higher than the number of live-birth deliveries or infants born.
The total number of live-birth deliveries of infants conceived with the help of ART. One delivery could result in one or more infants born.
The total number of infants born who were conceived using ART, including single infants and infants born in a multiple-birth delivery (such as, twins or triplets).
