Hope for those with profound hearing loss.
Providence Speech and Hearing Center has opened the first all-encompassing Cochlear Implant Institute, specializing in pediatrics, in Orange County.
The Orange County Cochlear Implant Institute™ at Providence Speech and Hearing Center is a multi-disciplinary group of experts that consists of an Audiologist, Otologist, Psychologist, Speech-Language Pathologist, and Social Worker serving the full spectrum of patients - infants through adults.
In its first year, we are providing more than 200 evaluations to children and infants to determine if they are candidates for cochlear implantation, and we are partnering with both CHOC Children's and UCI for surgery. Post-surgery, Providence provides the critical follow-up implant mapping, speech and language therapy, and all necessary wrap-around services required for implant patient success.
See the impact.
