UW Speech & Hearing Clinic is closed until June 22nd (updated March 25, 2020)
In response to the current novel coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak and the risk it poses to our most vulnerable populations, the UW Speech & Hearing Clinic will be closed until June 22nd. All speech, language, and audiology appointments will be postponed until after June 22nd. Our audiologists will continue to provide essential hearing aid repair services once Governor Inslee's "Stay at Home" directive is lifted, but you need to call first to arrange for a time to drop off your hearing aid. We will not be able to see walk-in patients at this time.
We are sorry for the inconvenience this causes, but it is a necessary step towards limiting the spread of the coronavirus.
Please go to the Clinic Coronavirus Information page for more information about the closure.
The UW Speech & Hearing Clinic is an outpatient center providing exceptional care to the community while serving as a clinical education and research facility.
