Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
Each year, about 12,000 children are born in the United States with sensorineural hearing loss. This can result in mild to profound loss of hearing.
At Children's Hearing Center, we provide complete assessments and treatment for children with sensorineural hearing impairment.
Children's Hospital doctors are active in developing universal protocols for newborn hearing screening tests to help make an early diagnosis.
Doctors use advanced audiologic testing to diagnose sensorineural hearing loss.
At the Hearing Center, your child has access to specialists in the following areas:
We offer full evaluations at Children's Hospital's main campus in the Lawrenceville section of Pittsburgh.
We need a doctor's referral before we can see your child in the Hearing Center.
Your health insurance may also require a referral from your child's primary care or family practice doctor. Our office staff will help you obtain the necessary documents.
We must receive all required referral and authorization forms before we can see your child.
To schedule an appointment, call 412-692-6216 and ask to speak to the Specialty Clinic Coordinator.
Bring your child's insurance ID card or Department of Medical Assistance Access card with you.
If you have coverage through a managed care plan (HMO or PPO), you must get prior consent for each visit. If you can't get proper consent before your child's visit, you will be responsible for payment.
If your health plan requires a co-payment for an office visit, please bring cash or a check in the correct amount.
