Reinforcing its commitment to expand access to hearing care, HearUSA announced the opening of a new hearing center in Woodland Hills, California.
The new Woodland Hills location joins existing HealthUSA hearing centers in Palm Beach Gardens and Vero Beach, Florida, and Tomball and Atascocita, Texas, as part of a multi-year plan to roll out new centers across the country—expanding access to hearing care for the estimated 48 million Americans living with hearing loss.
The new Woodland Hills center features a consumer-friendly environment where clients can explore prescription hearing aids from leading brands like Widex and Signia, as well as over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aid solutions from Sony. Clients can also receive a complimentary hearing evaluation, experience simulated hearing environments, and test various hearing aids with guidance from licensed hearing care professionals (HCPs).
“The United States has one of the most advanced healthcare systems in the world, but the percentage of those treating their hearing loss remains low with estimates ranging between 20% and 30% in the US,” says Nick Mengerink, president of HearUSA. “A major reason for this situation is a lack of access to hearing care. An estimated 48 million Americans are living with some form of hearing loss and many are in need of convenient, affordable hearing care in their communities. That’s why we are opening our new Centers of the Future across the country. With every new center opening, we’re expanding access to the highest possible quality of professional hearing care in a new, client-friendly environment that empowers them to take the first step on the life-changing journey toward better hearing.”

HearUSA hearing centers are designed from the ground up to make accessing hearing care easier and more client-centric than ever before, according to the company. All centers feature a new design concept that is modern, innovative, welcoming, and engaging; open spaces and product displays; key touchpoints that include a welcome hub and solutions wall, as well as calming and professional consultation rooms.
At the core of the center experience are HearUSA HCPs, who are equipped to help clients discover and understand the latest in innovative hearing aids and their various capabilities—like wireless connectivity to their smartphone, laptop, or tablet—that are necessary for their successful adoption.
The company’s leadership in insurance also enables clients to get the most from their benefits and flexible financing plans further expand access to better hearing. HearUSA says it is committed to making sure all clients can immediately experience the benefits of hearing aids with its no-risk trial program.
“With the opening of this new Hearing Center of the Future in Woodland Hills, our local HCPs are equipped with a complete portfolio of the world’s best diagnostic tools, hearing aid solutions, and financing options for all area residents, across all levels of hearing loss and budget,” says Dan Troast, HearUSA Audiologist and Chair of the HearUSA HCP Advisory Board. “If you live in this great community and need hearing aids, HearUSA can help you — guaranteed.”
