New RMC facilities will benefit fertility patients and reproductive research

Jan 14, 2022

On the 14th of December 2021, Camilla Mårtensen cut the ribbon to new top-modern facilities at Reproduktionsmedicinsk centrum (RMC) in Malmö. “RMC plays such an important and meaningful role and in these challenging times for the healthcare sector it is great with the positive news that we can now help even more involuntary childless patients in Region Skåne,” said Camilla Mårtensen (L), Board representative for Skåne University hospital.

In recent years RMC haven’t been able to meet the demand for IVF-treatments, which will now change with three new operating rooms, compared to only one before. An additional advantage is that reproductive researchers, who are also part of the ReproUnion project, are now co-located with RMC.

“Besides helping up to twice as many fertility patients, the new facilities also support our research activities. For our biobank project RUBIC, the proximity to the patients makes it easier to collect the data and samples, which we need to better understand infertility and optimise treatments,” said Margareta Kitlinski, consultant and head of section at RMC.

In addition to more operating and consultation rooms, there is also new equipment to facilitate all types of fertility treatment. “This means that patients don’t have to be referred to other hospitals for diagnosing and treatment, when more specialised reproductive techniques are used,” commented Margareta Kitlinski in an article from Skånska Dagbladet.

RMC’s new address Östra Varvsgatan 11 is in the Dockan area – a new and central part of Malmö. Please enjoy these pictures from the inauguration and remember to reference ReproUnion if you would like to use them!
