Hough Ear Hearing and Speech Center

The Hough Ear Hearing and Speech Center is located on the Hough Ear Institute Campus. Over 30 years ago, Dr. JVD Hough, partnered with INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center to develop the magnetic coupling technology used today in all cochlear implants.

HEHSC offers a team approach to therapy and education for the families and spouses of deaf or hard of hearing or speech impaired individuals. We believe in a patient’s choice for varying communication skills. As a team with the patient, family and provider, we move forward with the choices and set obtainable goals.

Our audiology team is second to none; their passion for assisting the patient with their entire hearing healthcare needs is essential to positive outcomes. Our providers spend many hours in training, conferences and outreach studies to further their ability to serve the patient.

Our clinic is a center of excellence for INTEGRIS Health Partners and an integral part of the Hough Ear Institute, which provides leadership for the clinical team. We invite you to contact us today at (405) 947-6030 to speak to one of our professionals or to schedule an appointment. Visit us online at www.hehsc.org.
