Overview

Audiology services at MassGeneral Hospital for Children are provided by licensed, certified audiologists from the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary (MEEI), which adjoins the hospital. MEEI audiologists work closely with pediatric specialists at MassGeneral Hospital for Children to ensure early identification and appropriate management of hearing loss and are recognized as a major regional resource for the comprehensive evaluation of hearing in newborns.

A Comprehensive Range of Services

A Tradition of Caring

At MassGeneral Hospital for Children, we know that the time of your child’s diagnosis and treatment is a very stressful one and we strive to provide an open, welcoming environment. We believe that no one knows a child as well as the parent does: parents, along with primary care providers, become our partners in a child's care and have an active voice in all treatment plans.
