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.

New Start Date for Walking for Wellness

Posted on: September 21, 2017

Walking for Wellness at the Jacksonville High School Bowl returns for another season of exercise and fellowship Monday, Oct. 2. The Walking for Wellness program provides a safe place in which to get walking exercise when weather conditions make walking outside unpleasant or dangerous. The program is open 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day Jacksonville School District 117 is in session. The program is closed during school holidays (including Thanksgiving and Christmas vacation) and any day school is not in session. On average, 75 people walk at the JHS Bowl each day the program is open—resulting in about 6,400 “encounters” with community members during the five months each year that Walking for Wellness is in session. Walking for Wellness is also offered year-round at First Christian Church, 2106 S. Main, in South Jacksonville. The church is open to walkers Monday-Friday 12:30 to 3 p.m. Walkers there should use the south entrance. There is no cost to participate in Walking for Wellness. Registration is not required. For additional details on Walking for Wellness, please call Passavant’s Marketing and Communications Department, 245-9541, extension 3129.
