About Coastal IVF

Laboratory/hospital facilities

Situated in the heart of Maroochydore, Coastal IVF is a purpose built fully integrated infertility treatment unit equipped with the latest in technology and offering up to date infertility treatment services. A full range of Assisted Reproduction Treatments are available including advanced techniques such as pre-implantation genetic diagnosis. Infertility care is provided by a dedicated team of experienced professionals committed to providing a personalised program tailored to individual needs and to ensuring complete continuity of care at all stages of treatment.

All ultrasound, scientific work and procedures are attended on site. The Sunshine Coast Day Surgery adjacent to our office provides hospital care for specific IVF procedures.

We access S&N and QML pathology laboratories for required biochemistry, endocrinology, microbiology and molecular biology services on the Coast & Wide Bay region.

Quality Assurance activities

Coastal IVF has both external and internal procedures for ongoing assessment of the unit’s function and results.

The Medical Director undergoes an educational and certification process through the Royal Australian College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. Coastal IVF is separately accredited with the Fertility Society of Australia through an independent audit overseen by RTAC (Reproductive Technology Accreditation Committee) which reviews the program on an annual basis. This ensures that the practice follows the guidelines outlined by the national body as well an ensuring a reasonable standard of clinical practice is maintained.

Results from the ART program are submitted annually to a national body (Perinatal Statistics Unit) and nationally published as a summary of all IVF care in Australia. As well, each unit is appraised of its individual performances compared to the national average.

A regular fortnightly review involving all members of the IVF team reviews both individual patient treatment programs as well as the recent results to identify any immediate adverse trends in pregnancy rates.
