Dr. Morris Wortman, accused of fertility fraud, loses hospital privileges

Dr. Morris Wortman, the local obstetrician-gynecologist accused of fertility fraud, has lost the privilege of practicing at Strong and Highland hospitals.

Practically, the loss of privileges will make little difference for Wortman; he has not practiced there in five years.

“He has not treated patients at Strong or Highland since 2017, and also has not participated in teaching residents or medical students since that time,” Chip Partner, the spokesman for the University of Rochester Medical Center, or URMC, said in an email.

“Dr. Wortman’s voluntary faculty appointment ended June 30, and he no longer has privileges to treat patients at Strong Memorial or Highland hospitals,” according to Partner. “He is able to refer patients who need inpatient care to Highland and discuss their course of treatment with the physicians there.”

Wortman is accused of secretively fathering children as a fertility specialist by using his own sperm for insemination while claiming it was the sperm of others.

In a lawsuit, a Geneseo woman alleges that she is Wortman’s daughter and that her mother was told the sperm was from a medical student. Wortman was the OB-GYN for Morgan Hellquist, the woman who is suing him, and she alleges he committed medical malpractice by treating her.
