DR SOMENDRA SHUKLA
CEO & Co-founder
“India IVF Fertility was founded with the aim to build a high-quality, national network of Fertility centres. In the five years since we started as a one room clinic , India IVF clinic has grown as the most trusted and fastest growing fertility treatment chain in India and has its presence in 8 states and serving in 14 different cities despite being a completely bootstrapped company ie. without any need of external funding. We have openly shared best practices across our centres to deliver a better patient experience, increased employee opportunities and greater investment in facilities and equipment. We should all feel proud of the positive culture and excellent market reputation we’ve built in such a short period of time.
The India IVF name has become synonymous with quality, ethical & transparent patient care, and our culture openly supports collaboration and innovation. It is the exceptional care delivered every day, to every couple, across each of our centre that has built this reputation.
More broadly, we aspire for India IVF to set a precedent in driving positive change towards sustainability of the private healthcare sector. This is all about setting a new benchmark for what fertility care should look like and improve the overall healthcare system.”
