Superior Hearing Centre announced that it will donate $300 from every pair of hearing aids sold in June to Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation’s Our Hearts at Home Cardiovascular Campaign. Their generous donation will go directly towards helping bring closer-to-home cardiovascular surgery right here to Northwestern Ontario.

Many people don’t realize the connection between their overall health and their hearing health. There are many health factors associated with hearing loss, including cardiovascular health. Because hearing loss and cardiovascular health are often linked, this campaign is important to the clinic, said Erin Juurakko, an audiologist and owner of Superior Hearing Centre.

“At Superior Hearing Centre, we take pride in providing comprehensive hearing assessments to those in our community,” Juurakko said. “Community involvement is important to us, and we are always happy to participate in events that allow us to provide education about hearing health and its links to overall health.”

But according to Brad Hopkins, a Hearing Instrument Specialist and owner at Superior Hearing, that’s not the only reason Superior Hearing is supporting the Our Hearts at Home Cardiovascular Campaign.

“It’s a really important campaign,” Hopkins said. “Superior Hearing has always promoted healthy living in the community, and we’re always looking for a way to give back to the community. I can’t imagine a better way to do that than to help bring local cardiovascular surgery here to Thunder Bay.”

“Local” is the key word here. Hopkins said that as Thunder Bay’s only locally owned hearing clinic, supporting the local community is part Superior Hearing’s philosophy.

“Local is very important to us,” he said. “We’re all about supporting local initiatives and supporting the citizens of Thunder Bay.”

Superior Hearing remains open during COVID – after all, hearing care is an essential service. Anyone can book appointments directly at 346-0101 (no referral necessary), though walk-ins are not being accepted during COVID. Juurakko said that the clinic takes every precaution with many COVID measures in place.

“We’re restricting the number of clients we allow in at a time, and the waiting room is closed off,” she said. Hand sanitizer, COVID screening, and mask use are also observed, she said. All staff have full PPE – and all staff have already been vaccinated.
