RMA – Interior
Reproductive Medicine Associates of CT (RMA of CT) is one of the leading fertility centers in the country. The 20,635 sf space includes a comfortable and spacious reception area, exam and treatment rooms, recovery areas, consultation rooms, education rooms, as well as administrative and doctors’ offices. The center also includes an In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Laboratory, one of just 16 leading IVF centers nationwide chosen by In Vitro Sciences to participate in its Centers of Excellence Program. To be selected for this distinction, a center must meet the highest national standards for clinical fertility and laboratory services.
The major design goal was to create a relaxing environment for patients, who experience a high level of stress on the road to pregnancy. This was achieved through the use of soothing colors, soft forms, and floral wallcoverings. Another goal was to provide spaces for additional support services, including nutrition classes and support groups, as well as acupuncture and fertile counseling. Privacy and flexibility were attained by use of folding doors, sliding doors and wall panels.
