Patient-centered care for hearing loss
At Rush, we understand the challenges associated with hearing loss. That's why we've assembled a team of highly-trained professionals who are dedicated to identifying problems and developing custom care plans that meet the communication needs of both individuals and their families.
Our plans focus on the development of skill-specific communication strategies and explore the benefits you should expect from using personal sound amplifiers, hearing aids, auditory osseointegrated implants (Baha) or cochlear implants.
Because communication is a shared experience, we always encourage family members to participate in your Rush experience.

Excellence in Hearing Loss Care
Leading-edge diagnostic technology
With use of the most advanced diagnostic tools available, our team will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your hearing and/or balance, identify the cause of your problems and develop the most appropriate plan of care.
Access to the latest treatment innovations
We provide a wide range of hearing loss management options, including the latest hearing aids, as well assistive listening devices for television, telephone, Bluetooth and other wireless technology.
Working with our specialists, you will be able to make informed choices that best suit your needs. For some, surgically implanted devices — such as cochlear implants or auditory osseointegrated implants (Baha) — may be the best option.
All of our audiologists at Rush have doctorate degrees, state licenses and clinical certification through the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. As teachers and researchers, we're able to bring the latest advances in audiology to our patients.
