Feb 4, 2016
US Fertility, the largest network of fertility centers in the U.S., says that some of its systems were encrypted in a ransomware attack that affected the company two months ago, in September 2020.

The US Fertility (USF) network is comprised of 55 locations across 10 states that completed almost 25,000 IVF cycles in 2018 through its clinics and more than 80 physicians.

In total, more than 130,000 babies have been born with the help of partner IVF/fertility practices in the USF network, including but not limited to Shady Grove Fertility, Reproductive Science Center San Francisco, IVF Florida, and Fertility Center of Illinois.
