Children’s Hearing Center provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment for children with sensorineural hearing impairment. Each year, about 12,000 children are born in the United States with sensorineural hearing loss, which can result in mild to profound loss of hearing.
Children's Hospital physicians were instrumental in developing universal protocols throughout the United States for newborn hearing screening tests in order to identify these children at a very young age. Diagnosis of sensorineural hearing loss is established using comprehensive audiologic testing.
Children are seen as needed by specialists in the following areas:
Because of this comprehensive evaluation, children are seen at Children's Hospital's main campus in the Lawrenceville section of Pittsburgh. Services include comprehensive medical evaluation, counseling, amplification (hearing aids) and cochlear implants.
Patients are seen in the Hearing Center by appointment and following a physician's referral only. When required by insurance, a referral from your child’s primary care or family practice physician must be brought or faxed to our office before we can see your child. Our office staff will assist you in obtaining the necessary pre-authorizations.
The time required for your child’s first visit will vary according to the number of appointments scheduled for that day. Please try to arrive at least 20–30 minutes before your child's first appointment. If you are unable to keep your child’s scheduled appointment, please call the office at least 24 hours in advance to cancel.
To schedule an appointment, call 412-692-6216 and ask to speak to the Specialty Clinic Coordinator.
Please bring your child's insurance identification information or your child's Department of Medical Assistance Access card with you. Prior authorization for each visit must be obtained if you have coverage through an HMO (Health Maintenance Organization) or PPO (Preferred Provider Organization). If proper authorization is not obtained prior to your child's visit, you will be responsible for payment. If your plan requires a co-payment for an office visit, please bring cash or a check in the appropriate amount.
