CBHBC Hearing Angels
The emotional, social, and occupational benefits of hearing aids are proven. People enjoy increased quality of life, are able to communicate with loved ones, suffer less isolation, and have increased earning potential.
However, not everyone in this economy can enjoy the benefits of better hearing due to the cost of modern digital hearing technology. Furthermore, with many insurances not providing coverage for hearing aids, the cost of better hearing is even more unattainable.
Columbia Basin Hearing Center is committed to increasing quality of life for all hearing impaired patients, not just those who are able to afford it. CBHBC’s Hearing Angels has been developed as a way to give back to our community and provide hearing aids to those who can’t afford them.
We have teamed up with HearNow, which is a non-profit organization through Starkey that provides state of the art hearing aids to people in financial need. The CBHBC Doctors of Audiology and staff volunteer their time, office, and equipment for fitting and follow-ups needed to successfully fit their hearing aids.
Please contact Dr. Shannon M. Aiello, Director of Audiology, to become a Hearing Angel and give someone the gift of better hearing who truly needs it.
