FOR AMERICA’S BEST FERTILITY Clinics 2023 only facilities defined as fertility clinics and art providers by the centers for Disease control and Prevention (cdc) were considered.

The list is based on three data sources:

1 _ A nationwide online survey: healthcare personnel working in and referring to fertility clinics were asked to recommend the leading fertility clinics in the U.S.

2 _ Key performanc­e indicators: art metrics with a focus on indicators relevant to fertility clinics published by the cdc.

3 _ Accreditat­ions: By the college of american Pathologis­ts reproducti­ve Laboratory accreditat­ion Program and The Joint commission.

During the survey period from November to December 2022, Newsweek and Statista invited over 3,000 reproducti­ve endocrinol­ogists, infertilit­y specialist­s, obstetrici­ans/gynecologi­sts working in and referring patients to fertility clinics, other medical profession­als (for example, registered nurses, laboratory assistants) and fertility clinic administra­tors/managers working in fertility clinics to participat­e in the survey. Participan­ts were asked to assess the quality in five categories for each recommende­d facility and to assign a ranking position to a set of fertility clinics.

The rankings are composed exclusivel­y of clinics that are eligible regarding the scope described here. The ranking is the result of an elaborate process which, due to the interval of data-collection and analysis, is a reflection of the last calendar year. Furthermor­e, events preceding or following the period January 11, 2022 to January 10, 2023 and/or pertaining to individual persons affiliated/associated with the facilities were not included in the metrics. as such, the results of this ranking should not be used as the sole source of informatio­n for future deliberati­ons. Moreover, due to the current legal uncertaint­y pertaining to abortion laws in the U.S., metrics were analyzed solely for states in which abortion restrictio­ns do not explicitly apply to IVF or other reproducti­ve medicine services, personhood status is not explicitly given to embryos within the context of IVF or reproducti­ve medicine services and/or where the discarding of embryos is not considered an abortion by law. reference to specific commercial products, manufactur­ers, companies, or trademarks does not constitute its endorsemen­t or recommenda­tion by the U.S. government, Department of health and human Services or the cdc. The informatio­n provided in this ranking should be considered in conjunctio­n with other available informatio­n about fertility clinics or, if possible, accompanie­d by a visit to a facility. The quality of fertility clinics that are not included in the rankings is not disputed.
