At 707 Broadway in 70's. Moved to Nordstrom Tower, then moved to Madison St in 2005. Pacific Gynecology Specialists (PGS) is located in downtown Seattle and is connected to Swedish Medical Center by a skywalk. Pacific Gynecology was originally partnered with Swedish Medical Center. Dr. Dr. Robert McIntosh started practicing with the group in 1976. Dr. William Coburn and Dr. Barry Stewart practiced here in the 70's too. Dr. Lee Hickock and Dr. Shaun Williams departed Pacific Gynecology Specialists in 2005 and opened up Pacific Northwest Fertility Clinic. See also Swedish Hospital postings for people who may have posted there instead of here.
I added this posting here, not because I was a donor at Pacific Gynecology, but because they were partnered with Swedish at the time of my donations and in 2005, both practices merged and became Pacific NW Fertility. I will put a post there, too. And, they (Pacific NW Fertility)are the ones to call for my records. I want to throw in here everyone I have spoken with has been so respectful and helpful in trying to figure out where my records were. In 1997, everything was completely anonymous so they won't give me any information about anything, but they did give me my Donor ID: #73. The child, once they reach 18, and the child's parents can get retrieve information about me.
Swedish Medical Center's (Seattle) donor program was phased out in late 2005 and was turned over to Pacific Northwest Fertility (this was on Swedish Medical Center's website in Aug. 2005). Dr. Lee Hickock and Dr. Shaun Williams left 'Pacific Gynecology Specialists' and opened up their own clinic called "Pacific Northwest Fertility Clinic" (PNFC) in 2005. Another member says: Dr. Williams left to return to his hometown. Hickok opened the new office with Lorna Marshall, who had been with Virginia Mason. Some of these donors are from California Cryobank.
I am putting this post here not because I was a donor at Pacific NW (it didn't yet exist), but that is where my records currently reside. I donated at Swedish Hospital from 1997 to 98. Included under Swedish banner was also Pacific Gynecology and Seattle Fertility. In 2005, they became Pacific NW Fertility. Let me say, everyone I spoke with while trying to find the records was so helpful and so sincere. I told them straight up I was interested in finding the half siblings of my children. That might sound strange, but in 1997 everything was completely anonymous. And, as such, they gave me no information other than my Donor ID number (#73). They are allowed, however, to give the information about me to the children (once they turn 18) or the children's parents.
Procreative Technologies began as part of University of Southern California (USC) and was located at the USC Health Science Campus. They then moved to West Los Angeles/Santa Monica. There was also a branch in St. Louis, MO. Later, USC and Procreative were bought out by California Cryobank. CCB changed the donor numbers in some cases.
Associated doctors/facilities: Dr. Debrovner, Dr. Hugh Melnick, Fertility Centers of CA, and Mt Sinai. Donor numbers with the letters in front of them are likely the Fertility Center of CA- Orange donor numbers. Please check those lists for matches, too. There have been several reports of Repro Lab families not receiving the donor sperm that they had purchased. See the Repro Lab page on our "Which Sperm Bank" page (under Helpful Info tab).
Also Seattle Fertility and Gynecology Clinic. See also Pacific Gynecology Specialists postings, they are all related to Swedish Hospital. Swedish Hospital updated their name to: Swedish Medical Center.The place where the sperm was sold was called Reproductive Technologies Program thru Swedish Medical Center. In August of 2005, this place's website stated that Swedish Medical Center was being turned over to Pacific Northwest Fertility, and the sperm donor program was being phased out. (Dr. Lee Hickok and Dr. Shaun Williams departed Pacific Gynecology Specialists in 2005 and opened up Pacific Northwest Fertility Clinic).
