LEXINGTON, Mass., May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Reproductive Science Center (RSC) of New England, the seventh largest medical practice of its kind nationwide, announces a new partnership with Lowell General Hospital with the opening of an infertility clinic at the hospital's satellite facility in North Chelmsford at 10 Research Place, Suite 250.

The new location offers fertility consultations for patients in the Greater Lowell area and diagnostic services at Lowell General's main campus in Lowell. In vitro fertilization (IVF) procedures -- which include egg retrievals, embryo transfers and embryo cryopreservation -- will continue to be performed at RSC's centrally located Lexington, Mass. office.
