Beltone New England’s “Hear for Children” Campaign will Raise Funds for Hasbro Children’s Hospital Pediatric Audiology

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Throughout the month of September, Beltone New England, one of the nation’s leaders in hearing care, is hosting its “Hear for Children” campaign to raise funds in support of pediatric audiology at Hasbro Children’s Hospital, the area’s leading pediatric hospital.

The month-long campaign has set a goal to raise $15,000 to support the purchase of new equipment for the Hasbro Children’s Hospital’s Pediatric Audiology Department.

Across 55 Beltone locations, staff and customers of the company will be able to support “Hear for Children” by making a donation on-site via check or credit card. Additionally, the effort will feature a dedicated online giving page where members of the community can make secure gifts and share the page with others who wish to support the campaign. Through its philanthropy program, Beltone will match all employee donations, up to a total of $5,000.

“As well as any of our community partners, Beltone understands the importance of taking advantage of the latest state-of-the-art audiology equipment when treating patients with hearing disorders,” said Margaret M. Van Bree, MHA, DrPH, president of Rhode Island Hospital and Hasbro Children’s Hospital. “Funds raised through this campaign will directly impact the lives of our patients; we are so grateful to Beltone for giving their staff and patients an opportunity to support our Pediatric Audiology Department.”

The Pediatric Audiology Department at Hasbro Children’s Hospital offers a full range of services for children, which include: comprehensive hearing testing using conventional, visual reinforcement and conditioned play audiometry, as well as physiological measures; sedated audio evaluations, including auditory brainstem response; central auditory processing evaluations; monitoring for ototoxicity; and cochlear implants and hearing aids.
