Audiology Clinic


It is important for people to recognize the signs of hearing loss so they can receive the help that is available. Today’s technology can contribute a great deal to a better quality of life.

Passavant’s Audiology Clinic is staffed by an audiologist. An audiologist is a professionally trained hearing expert with a doctorate degree. Audiologists specialize in evaluating hearing ability and can help make sure a patient’s hearing health is sound. If there is any hearing loss, an audiologist can assess its extent, identify its source, and direct any needed non-medical rehabilitation for hearing impairment.

The Audiology Clinic is located at 559 North Westgate, just west of the main Passavant campus. Call 217-243-9426 for an appointment.

Tamera Norton Honored with Daisy Award

Posted on: May 17, 2017

Tamera Norton, a registered nurse in the Transitional Care Unit, is the newest recipient of the Daisy Award at Passavant Area Hospital. Passavant partners with the Daisy Foundation to give the award each quarter to a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse who consistently demonstrates excellence through clinical expertise and extraordinary compassionate care. A grateful patient nominated Tamera for the honor: “Over the course of my 28 days at Passavant, I became concerned about my progress. I expressed my concern to Tamera. She took note and promised to try and resolve. She made many phone calls until she was able to make an appointment for me. She kept me informed every step of the way and helped arrange for me to leave the unit for the doctor’s appointment. The result of the appointment not only eased my mind, but caused a complete change in my therapy. Tamera cared for my needs unfailingly and always with professional and pleasant attitudes. The rest was way beyond the call of duty.” After receiving the award, Tamera is considering becoming a Daisy ambassador to help spread the word about her experiences. “As a nurse, our common core is to care that much about our patients. I was just trying to provide the good, quality care that our patients want,” Tamera said.
