Damien Fertility Partners New Treatment Center

This is an exciting year of growth and change for our practice. After twenty years of caring for patients in our Little Silver office we are thrilled to have designed, built and moved into our new treatment facility in Shrewsbury, NJ. Our new address is 655 Shrewsbury Ave. Suite 300 Shrewsbury NJ, 07702. Our entire team has collaborated to customize our new facility so we can continue to offer our patients exceptional care. We designed our new treatment center to exceed each patient’s needs and expectations. No matter at what point you decide to seek our help and guidance, our mission is to support you in your journey and make your treatment as stress free as possible.

We started construction of our new treatment center in November 2013 and completed construction in July of 2014!  We’ve posted some photos of our completed office below.  Please check back often as we will be posting more photos and a virtual tour in the near future.

Green is great for embryos.  We clean green, build green and maintain a non-toxic environment in our treatment center.  655 Shewsbury Avenue is heated and powered by solar energy.  This is a picture of the solar panels in the parking lot.  Additional solar panels are located on the roof.

More walls are framed and we are getting a real sense of the space.  It’s going to be awesome!  Our designers have chosen a warm, comforting color pallet of earthy green, blue and beige for our new treatment center.  The space will include a primary waiting room, a waiting room just for the families of patients undergoing procedures, a cafe (no charge for snacks and drinks ;-)), an amazing water feature in the reception area, a custom fish tank, two state-of-the-art laboratories, and offices and treatment areas that are designed to offer the best care possible in a comforting environment. 

We’ll be providing more exciting details about our new treatment center in the coming weeks, so check back often. 
The pictures below are our doctors’ offices, IVF laboratory, treatment rooms and recovery area.  The treatment rooms will have huge skylights that depict comforting, peaceful outdoor scenes and the recovery area will be surrounded in opaque etched glass to help create a relaxing environment.

December 23rd – Environment means everything to growing embryos!  We’ve completed the installation of the structural steel that will support one of the most technologically advanced air handling systems available today.  The system will monitor our laboratory air quality, maintain perfect humidity, maintain perfect air pressure and filter any volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the air constantly to give our growing embryos the best chance to thrive.
The walls for the entire space are framed and the plumbers, electricians and HVAC contractors are making great progress.  We’re on schedule to complete construction in the Spring.

Jackie, our laboratory manager and senior embryologist, had a chance to inspect her new laboratory and work space…we’re all excited about the exceptional level of care we will continue to provide our patients at our new treatment center.

February 28 – We have walls!  We’ve completed the plumbing, ductwork and wiring and we have walls!  We had a few delays due to the weather.  We were not able to do the preparation work for our state-of-the-art HVAC system for our IVF laboratory due to the outside temperatures.  The HVAC system is one of the most important pieces of equipment for the lab.  Our embryos need perfect air quality to thrive and our new HVAC systems will provide the exact environment our embryos need.  The temperatures finally rose above freezing for a few days and we were able to do the roof penetrations for our IVF laboratory HVAC system.  Now that those are in place, we were able to insulate the ceiling and begin drywalling.  Keep checking back.  Our design team goes to work soon and it’s going to be awesome!

April 21 – Paint, tile, ceilings, cabinets and work spaces.  It’s been a little while since our last post about our new office, but the contractors have been hard at work even though we haven’t done an update.  We have paint on many of the walls.  Floor tiles, lighting fixtures, ceilings and cabinets are being installed.  And, the cabinet makers are assembling some of the work spaces.  We worked extremely hard while planning our new office to ensure that it will be a phenomenal treatment facility for our current and future patients.  It is really fun to start seeing live how amazing our new office will be once it’s completed.

We can’t say it enough…environment is everything to growing embryos.  Our paint, adhesives and construction materials for our new facility are all low/no VOC products.  We are taking every precaution to ensure that our embryos have the best chance to thrive.

These four photos are all of our ceilings.  The ceilings and walls in our new facility have some really amazing architectural elements to them including wooden designs that weave through multiple rooms, etched glass elements in the walls, a water wall and custom lighting.  Our exam rooms and procedure rooms will all have skylights in them that depict peaceful outdoor scenes.  We know how stressful it can be to pursue infertility treatment and we designed our new office to help make your treatment as stress free as possible.
 

October 1 – Construction is complete and we’ve moved into our new offices!  We’re loving our new space!  We have a little bit of decorating left to do, but we are settled in and seeing patients.  We’re getting great feedback from our patients and referring physicians.  The best part of all is our success rates are phenomenal!  We’re posting some pics, but keep checking back in.  We’ll be posting more pics and we’re working on a virtual tour that we’ll post in the near future.

Above are a few photos of our laboratory which is truly cutting edge.  We constructed our entire office including our lab using low and zero VOC constructions materials. Our air handling system for the lab keeps the air clean like a clean room so that no contaminants can interact with our embryos.  We use smaller incubators that create a state of the art environment that is ideal for healthy embryo growth.  We upgraded all of the equipment in our laboratory to ensure we are providing the ideal environment for health embryo growth.  Our attention to detail is paying off.  Our success rates have been phenomenal.
