Conceive, the Gynaecology and Fertility Hospital was an idea ‘conceived’ a decade ago by Dr. Pankaj Shrivastav.
Dr. Shrivastav, while he served as the Deputy Director at the Dubai Government’s Dubai Gynaecology and Fertility Centre, often felt that fertility treatments were expensive and unaffordable for many. He strongly believed that everyone should be able to avail of fertility treatment, irrespective of their financial status. Therefore, with an aim to provide quality and affordable fertility treatment for all, he decided to start a fertility clinic that is not commercially driven. On July 4th 2004, Conceive was born. Today, 10 years later, Conceive and its staff have had the pleasure and privilege of seeing the birth of close to 2500 babies, and they continue pledge by their famous mantra – “Let’s make you a family”.
What started off initially as a small 2,800Sqft facility in Sharjah, with just 2 beds and minimal staff grew rapidly over the years into a fertility hospital with double the initial size and capacity. Today Conceive Hospital in Sharjah has over 30 people, all working together as one happy family.
Dr. Shrivastav attributes Conceives growth and success to the non-commercial and honest approach he believes in. “I believe the best publicity is word of mouth. We have couples coming from all over the world for treatment, just on word of mouth – one couple from Djibouti, living in UAE had successful treatment and now we see at least 6-8 couples from Djibouti flying down every month for treatment.”
He also strongly believes in establishing an emotional connection with his patients. “It’s very hard at times”, he agrees. “We have emotional ups and downs every day at the hospital, because our entire staff gets involved with our patients. We go through the same heartache and joy as our patients.” he says.
Despite a decade of phenomenal growth and success, for Dr. Shrivastav, the definition of joy hasn’t changed much. “Even today after 10 years there is no greater joy than hearing that first 6 weeks’ scan heartbeat.” he accepts, ever so humbly.
