IVIRMA’s scientific innovation continues to revolutionize the industry
IVI was founded in 1990 by Professors José Remohí and Antonio Pellicer, and became a leader in fertility treatment in Europe and Latin America.
Its success rates have been one of the best in the sector since its inception, thanks to its continuous efforts in the teaching and research fields, which have put this company on the international vanguard of fertility care.
RMA was founded in 1999 by Drs. Paul Bergh, Richard Scott and Michael Drews, quickly becoming a leader in reproductive medicine in the United States.
Its success rates were consistently higher than the national average, thanks to cutting-edge research and state-of-the-art technology, and the group was soon recognized as a leader in the Americas.
IVI and RMA merged in 2017, a turning point that transformed the assisted reproduction industry, creating the only global company in Europe, the United States and Latin America. The company is expected to finish 2019 with 65 clinics and more than 67,000 assisted reproduction treatments.
IVI and RMA both place great importance on research, high-quality scientific results, and a common culture with a single objective: to achieve the best results for patients.
