For our local communities and businesses

HEAR Wisconsin helps children and adults of all ages identify and manage hearing loss through patient-first care, advanced expertise, and leading technologies. We’ve seen first-hand how our programs help the people we serve live happier, healthier, more productive lives.

Now, we are hitting the road — bringing our services directly to local community members and businesses with Wisconsin’s first-ever nonprofit Mobile Audiology Clinic (MAC). Extending the accessibility of HEAR Wisconsin, we can now provide more people throughout the state with convenient, affordable and quality hearing healthcare and hearing conservation services.

Fueled by expertise

We are the hearing healthcare and hearing conservation experts. Our state-of-the-art mobile clinic is supervised by a team of audiologists with doctorate degrees, Council for Accreditation in Occupational Hearing Conservation (CAOHC) certification, OSHA training, and extensive hands-on experience. Pair this with our entire in-house team of communication and technology professionals — and we deliver a level of expertise that’s second to none.
