In recognition of Better Hearing and Speech Month (May), Crozer-Keystone Health System would like to remind its community members of the services offered for both adults and children who suffer from hearing and speech disorders, as well as any dysfunction of the ear that can lead to balance problems.

Some of the services offered include:

  • Audiology: Crozer-Keystone’s Audiology team evaluates and diagnoses patients of all ages with hearing and/or inner ear balance problems. Audiologists are also available to assist with hearing aid selection and fittings at some of our sites.
  • Pediatric Speech Therapy: Speech Therapy professionals provide evaluation and treatment of children and young adults from ages 0 to 18 years. Treatments are individualized to assist patients and their families in addressing physical, cognitive and developmental challenges.
  • Speech Therapy/Speech Pathology: Crozer-Keystone’s Speech and Language Pathology program provides evaluation and treatment of disorders of speech, language, voice, fluency and cognition. The goal is to attain an individual’s highest level of communication function in his or her home, work and social environment. Services are offered to all age groups.
  • Dysphagia Therapy: This specialty program is designed to enable patients of all ages who may be experiencing difficulty eating or drinking, to improve their swallowing, and maximize their ability to safely eat and drink. Our highly trained therapists use various evaluative techniques, including video fluoroscopy, to diagnose swallowing disorders. Based on the results of testing, the therapists develop individualized treatment plans for the patients’ oral, pharyngeal and esophageal dysphagia disorders.
  • Crozer-Keystone Center for Dizziness and Balance: Balance and dizziness conditions can have several causes, including vestibular (balance system) problems, inner-ear infections, neurologic disease and cardiac disease. All of these problems are treated at the Crozer-Keystone Center for Dizziness and Balance. When visiting the center for the first time, you will receive a comprehensive evaluation. Through this evaluation and perhaps additional testing, the team will diagnose your problem and develop an appropriate treatment plan tailored to your needs.

The hospitals of Crozer-Keystone will offer free hearing screenings in the month of May.
