New York, NY, March 3, 2021 – InTandem Capital Partners, LLC (“InTandem Capital”), a healthcare services focused private equity firm, announced today that its affiliated fund, InTandem Capital Partners Fund II, LP, has completed a growth equity investment in San Diego Fertility Center (“SDFC”), a leading fertility provider in Southern California.

San Diego Fertility Center is a world-class reproductive center committed to advancing the science of reproduction with the sole purpose of delivering success with compassion and individualized care. The collective experience of the physicians and the entire team at SDFC has solidified its position as a leader in the field. Since 1989, San Diego Fertility Center has brought thousands of miracle babies into the world helping families from across the US and around the globe.

“Our decision to select a private equity investor was not something we took lightly. We were looking for a partner who understands our vision and has extensive experience helping regional companies expand nationally,” said Chief Executive Officer, Lisa Van Dolah. “It was clear to us upon our initial meeting with InTandem Capital that they have a unique approach to working with portfolio companies.”

“InTandem Capital expressed tremendous respect for what we have already achieved and they have shown a strong desire to preserve our culture,” said Dr. Said Daneshmand. “This partnership will serve to harness the best of our energies and skills, aligning us in the common goal of serving our patients and future parents. We look forward to working with their team and seeking out other like-minded practices to join this partnership.”

Dr. Sandy Chuan added, “Our mission has always been to deliver exceptional care to each of our patients with the vision of helping as many people as possible achieve their dream of parenthood. We believe that having a strong partner like InTandem Capital, who is also committed to this mission, will further enhance our ability to deliver excellence and successful outcomes to our patients.”

Elliot Cooperstone, Managing Partner of InTandem Capital Partners, said, “San Diego Fertility Center’s team of superior fertility specialists share our mindset. We both believe a group of qualified individuals working together toward a common cause is able to achieve far more than those individuals working separately. My colleagues and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with a team of compassionate clinicians who are experts in their field.”

“San Diego Fertility Center has demonstrated that extraordinary fertility care is about having technical expertise, proven successful outcomes and the ability to make patients feel special” said Pamela Applefeld, Managing Director of InTandem Capital Partners. “The SDFC team has established a strong foundation that is well positioned for continued growth.
