Having healthy ears is a big part of being able to hear the world around us. Our hearing services help your child do just that.

What we do

Our audiometry (hearing) nurses conduct comprehensive hearing tests. These tests help with the early identification of ear disease and hearing problems.

Audiometry nurses can also make referrals to other health professionals and educators.

Who we care for

Children from ages 3 to 12 years.
