We are aware of the importance of hearing problems, which is why the hospital has set up the Hearing Center to provide assessment, treatment and restoration to patients with hearing and speech impairment. About one in three of every 1,000 healthy babies have hearing impairment, while one in three of every 100 babies in high-risk groups are born with hearing loss. These babies are likely to face problems with speech and language development. These children start speaking later than usual, do not speak like kids at their current age level, do not speak clearly, have mental, emotional and social problems, which affects their learning and educational development.

This hearing loss has an effect on their communication, which impacts their school and social lives. Treating hearing impairment from birth or from a very young age and receiving correct diagnosis and appropriate care can help to solve many problems. For instance, a child who is deaf or suffering from hearing loss can be treated by using a hearing aid or a cochlear implant depending on the condition, and he or she can undergo speech therapy. Additionally, some hearing loss can be prevented. For example, those who are exposed to loud sounds in their work environment should wear earplugs or other protection.
