NEW YORK, February 27, 2024 /PRNewswire/ – Kindbody, the leading national fertility clinic network and global family-building benefits provider for employers, today announced the opening of its state-of-the-art clinic and IVF lab at 8845 Lyra Dr in Columbus, OH. This expansion reflects Kindbody’s commitment to making world-class reproductive care more accessible to employers and patients across the United States. The clinic is led by Dr. Kasey Reynolds Marelić, a double-board certified fertility specialist in both reproductive endocrinology and obstetrics and gynecology. 

Kindbody Columbus was built to serve local patients and employers with convenient access to Kindbody’s exceptional fertility care. “We’re delighted to continue our expansion to bring our mission of high-quality fertility and family-building care to Columbus employers, their employees, and the entire community,” said Annbeth Eschbach, CEO of Kindbody. “We continue to hear from employers about the vital role fertility benefits play in attracting and retaining talent, building inclusive workplaces, and contributing to the health and well-being of their workforce. We look forward to serving the entire Columbus community for years to come.”

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. Kindbody opens clinics across the U.S., often at the request of employers, who wish to provide comprehensive virtual and in-person care for their employees. As the benefits solution and direct provider of care, Kindbody is uniquely positioned to decrease cost, improve the patient experience, and deliver better health outcomes. 

Dr. Marelić said, “I’m truly passionate about helping people build families and am delighted to serve individuals and couples in Columbus and the entire state on their reproductive journey. Together we can navigate the path to parenthood with compassion and Kindbody’s personalized approach to care.”
