Hearing care retailer HearUSA announced the opening of two new hearing centers in Tomball and Atascocita, Texas.

The new locations join existing h in Palm Beach Gardens and Vero Beach, Florida and Woodland Hills, California as part of a multi-year plan to roll out new centers across the country, the company says.

The new Tomball and Atascocita centers feature 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, HearUSA says. They 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 U.S.” 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,” he continued. “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.” 

The HearUSA hearing centers are designed from the ground up to make accessing hearing care easier and more client-centric than ever before, the company says. 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 commitment in insurance also enables clients to get the most from their benefits and flexible financing plans further expand access to better hearing, the company says.

“With the opening of these two new Hearing Centers of the Future, we are equipped with a complete portfolio of the world’s best diagnostic tools, hearing aid solutions, and financing options for all Houston-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 a hearing aid, HearUSA can help you — guaranteed.”
