Michael Reese Hospital

Clinic

The fertility clinic was part of the hospital back in 1984. I do not believe the clinic is still in operation. (Michael Reese was formerly known as Fertility Institute, Ltd.-see also that listing)

  • Girl born Dec 1959, at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago. Recently discovered, through AncestryDNA and confirmed with 23 and Me, that I was conceived with a donor sperm. I believe it would be from a medical student who was working with Dr. Melvin Cohen and Dr. Henry Hankin. FOUND MY SPERM DONOR.....Dr. William Marc Alpern...Did a rotation at Michael Reese Hospital then went on to Northwestern in their fertility clinic. I have 4 half siblings related to this donor so far....

  • My dad is the donor. He is currently 81 years old and in good health. He was a medical OB/GYN resident at Michael Reese Hospital from 1963-1967. During this time, he regularly (sometimes weekly for 4 years) donated sperm for Drs. Melvin Cohen and Dr. Henry Hankin. He has 4 children, I live in the Chicago area still. We have just recently learned of the extent and process of his donations and are curious about half siblings. We have close family friends in the same situation -- a buddy of my dad's who also donated during those years, also with four children, three of whom live in the Chicago area.
