Central Institute for the Deaf moves clinic

From: St. Louis Business Journal, MO - 23 Dec 2002

Central Institute for the Deaf is relocating its clinic services to its new, modern campus at 4560 Clayton Ave. north of Highway 40. The clinic has operated from its 909 S. Taylor location for more than half a century.

Brad Stach, director of audiology and clinical services for CID, said the move is designed to put the clinic closer to Washington University Medical Center and make it more accessible by car and MetroLink. The move will integrate the clinic into CID's new campus, which also houses an oral school for hearing-impaired children, and the Harold W. Siebens Hearing Research Facility.

The clinic, which provides diagnostic and rehabilitative services for adults and children with hearing disorders, expects its move to result in operating cost savings and increased service to clients. Its services include hearing evaluations, hearing aid fittings, assistive listening technology and aural rehabilitation.

Some of the Institute's academic offices and the CID Speech, Hearing and Education Library also are being relocated to allow for the sale of the 909 S. Taylor building.
