Mangalore City Gets a Hearing Centre for New Born Babies: Check Out

January 7: A New Born Hearing Assessment Centre was inaugurated at Lady Goschen Hospital on January 7,  Tuesday. This centre has been set up by Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore, a constituent of Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE), in association with Pai Family Endowment (in memory of Suhas Gopal Pai).
Dr Deepak Madi, Deputy Medical Superintendent at KMC Hospital-Attavar, said that the facility would be managed by the Departments of Audiology, ENT, and Paediatrics of KMC, Mangalore.
The centre aims to screen all the babies born in the hospital for hearing loss. This is the maiden initiative of the MAHE-Pai Family Endowment that has been set up to find solutions for the numerous challenges faced by the hearing handicapped in and around Dakshina Kannada district. The endowment will also help in meeting the expenditure incurred for rehabilitation of deafness with hearing aid and cochlear implantation for the beneficiaries hailing from financially weaker sections of the society. The centre at Lady Goschen Hospital will screen about 10,000 babies a year. A sensitisation programme for ASHA workers of the district on new born hearing assessment will be held at KMC Hospital, Attavar.
