Patient shaking hands with their audiologist

With the growing challenge of hearing loss across the country and around the world, we’re proud of our team member, audiologist Elaine Welch., Au.D., for her tireless commitment to sharing the gift of sound and helping people in need. Dr. Welch was recently recognized by Starkey Hearing Foundation for her dedicated service to the Hear Now program, which provided nearly 14,000 hearing aids to an estimated 7,400 men, women, and children in 2017.

“Thank you for being a treasure to Hear Now and its people,” shared the foundation in a letter to Elaine. “The 6 individuals you assisted in 2017 are blessed with a new lease on life because of your kindness and generosity. Thank you for leaving footprints; thank you for being part of the change.” We, too, salute, Dr. Welch — who embodies our devotion to the highest-quality compassionate care — and couldn’t agree more with Starkey Hearing Foundation’s powerful words.
