Helping You and Your Neighbors Hear Better in Oklahoma City and Shawnee
Hearts for Hearing was established in 2003 to provide funding for the initial set of hearing aids for children with hearing loss in Oklahoma. In 2007, the mission was expanded to become a comprehensive hearing health program for both children and adults, offering auditory-verbal therapy. In 2013, to meet the growing demand for adult hearing healthcare, the mission expanded again to open a clinic specifically designed for adults.
Our passion is helping smart people like you—people who are interested in staying connected and getting the most out of life—rediscover hearing. Our satisfaction comes from the joy our patients feel when they are hearing clearer, able to once again connect with friends, family, and the world around them.
Hearts for Hearing has helped thousands of people in the Oklahoma City and Shawnee areas improve their hearing. We provide a full range of diagnostic and preventative hearing services, including hearing aid screening, hearing and tinnitus evaluations, hearing aids, and rehabilitative and preventative counseling. You’ll be working with our highly trained staff to couple the latest in hearing aid technology with the best fit for your hearing needs.
Chances are we’ve helped your friends and neighbors, and we’re sure that we can help you, too. As a 501c3 charitable organization, the profits of the adult clinic support hearing technology and therapy services for children with hearing loss ages 5 and under at no cost to families across Oklahoma.
“Very professional and thorough. I know of their great reputation and have been very pleased in the way they have cared for my family members. I love the mission of what Hearts for Hearing does.”
