Audiology Clinic



What type of care is available?

The Audiology Clinic provides a wide range of inpatient and outpatient diagnostic audiological evaluations for patients ranging from birth to geriatrics. We also provide universal infant hearing screenings for newborns before discharge from the hospital. Annual and follow-up hearing conservation testing is also provided for active duty and civilian personnel enrolled in the Hearing Conservation Program at Ft. Benning. Lastly, we dispense hearing aids to active duty personnel, perform hearing aid evaluations for all populations, and make appropriate referrals for active duty family members that require hearing aids.


What type of care is not available?

At this time, Vestibular Function Evaluation / Balance Disorder tests are not available. Patients in need of this type of testing are referred to a local civilian provider. Retirees requiring hearing aids will be referred to the nearest military treatment facility which offers the Retiree At Cost Hearing Aid Program (RACHAP) or to the nearest VA hospital.

Audiological testing is provided in the Audiology Clinic located in the basement on the Pharmacy side of Martin Army Community Hospital. This clinic is part of the EENT Clinic and receives referrals from all primary and specialty care providers.
