Leading Fertility Clinic Network and Global Family-Building Benefits Provider Bolsters Leadership Team with New Scientific, Revenue, and Operational Roles to Support Growth

NEW YORK, March 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ – Kindbody, the leading national fertility clinic network and global family-building benefits provider for employers, today announced it expanded its executive team with the appointment of six executives with expertise in building successful healthcare companies and accelerating teams to the next stage of growth. The company is opening four additional markets in 2024 with clinics in Charlotte, Miami, Newport Beach, and San Diego. Today Kindbody is the largest women-founded, women-led fertility company serving employers and consumers.

Since its founding in late 2018, Kindbody has revolutionized the fertility landscape in the United States and positioned itself as the category leader for world-class affordable and accessible fertility and family-building care. Kindbody’s model is unique in that it is the only family-building benefits provider for employers that is also in the provision of care serving patients in its 35 state-of-the-art fertility clinics nationwide. The company saves employers 25%-30% by contracting with them directly to provide comprehensive virtual and in-person care to their employees. As the direct provider of care, Kindbody is uniquely positioned to decrease cost, improve the patient experience, and deliver industry leading health outcomes. 

Kindbody has grown significantly over the past two years. The company has nearly doubled its employer client roster and today covers 3.1 million lives, a 4x increase over the same time period in 2022. Kindbody has experienced a 75% increase in new patient visits since 2022. 

“We are thrilled to announce the addition of six accomplished executives to our team, each bringing a wealth of experience and strategic vision to the table,” said Annbeth Eschbach, CEO of Kindbody. 

“These new appointments and roles ensure we have the right leadership and dedicated resources in place to meet employer and patient demand and take our company to the next level of growth.”
