About a year ago, we opened a new office – The Hearing Center at Jacksonville Hearing & Balance Institute. This 1200 square foot, state-of-the-art facility is located about 200 feet down the hall from our main office.
We opened The Hearing Center for several reasons. First, and probably most importantly, we needed more space. As our hearing aid, cochlear implant, and implantable hearing device programs continued to grow, so too did our need for more space and more efficient facilities. Secondly, we needed a more defined space where we could work closer together. At The Hearing Center, we have a repair lab, several consultation and fitting rooms, a sound booth, and plenty of room for all the necessary supplies that come along with a full-service Audiology practice within close proximity. Finally, we wanted a place where we could cater to the needs of our hearing aid and cochlear implant patients. At The Hearing Center, we’ve been able to accomplish just that: hearing aid and cochlear implant repair times are faster, patients are greeted by the same familiar faces, the office is set up to be compatible with hearing devices (come by and check our looped waiting room), and we’re working on creating a new hearing ‘store’, where we will have all sorts of hearing device supplies and accessories available.
That brings us to our new website – www.betterhearingjax.com. Like The Hearing Center, this website has been created to better serve those who have trusted us with their care. We hope this site will become a great resource for our patients, and for anyone who happens to stop by online. We have big plans for the site and are just getting started. We’ll soon have plenty of ‘how to’ videos available for patients and their families, an online store where items such as wax filters and hearing aid batteries can be purchased, an active blog with the latest news from the hearing care industry that will be maintained by our own Audiology staff, and a latest news section, where you can stay up to date on what’s going on at The Hearing Center.
Be sure to keep checking in. We have many exciting events planned for the Spring and Summer months, and you can be sure we’ll keep you posted at www.betterhearingjax.com.
