Barbados Fertility Centre has made the decision to not raise prices for their IVF treatments for another year, despite rising costs across the board. This is a testament to their commitment to making fertility treatments available and affordable for all patients. Clinic Director Anna Hosford and Medical Director Dr Juliet Skinner spoke about why they are choosing not to pass on the cost increases to their patients.
“We know that people are going through tough times right now, so we don’t want them having one more thing they need to worry about. We understand how costly fertility treatments can be, so we want our patients to know that they can rest assured knowing that it won’t cost any more than what it did before.” said Hosford. “Our patients have always valued transparency and reliability when it comes to pricing.”
“It’s no secret that the cost of living has been rising, making it difficult for many people to meet their financial obligations.” said Hosford. “At Barbados Fertility Centre, we value our patients and want to do our best to keep prices low and affordable for everyone. That’s why we have decided not to pass on the rising costs to our patients.”
“As a business, we have had to face increasing costs as well, with some rising over 20%.” Says Dr Skinner “These costs come from a variety of sources including materials that are used in delivering our personalised IVF journey. Despite these rising costs, we are committed to finding ways to absorb them without passing on any additional cost burden to our patients.”
“Efficiency is key when it comes to keeping prices down despite increasing costs. This helps us keep both direct and indirect costs down while ensuring that every customer receives exceptional personalised care with us. We are able to remain competitively priced while maintaining high levels of quality across the board.”
The pandemic has caused a massive disruption to our economy, and many businesses have had no choice but to increase prices in order for them to stay afloat. While Barbados Fertility Centre has also seen an increase in costs due to inflation and other factors, we have decided that raising prices was not an option because it would add an additional financial burden onto already stressed patients.
