HearUSA Delivers Better Hearing Health and Strengthens Professional Development with the Opening of Hearing Center of the Future and HearAcademy Learning Center in Huntington Beach


The center features state-of-the art engagement technologies, a solution wall, interactive displays, expert advice from licensed Hearing Care Professionals (HCPs), as well as a HearAcademy Learning Center where area HCPs can train to remain current with the latest advances in hearing care.

Huntington Beach, CALIFORNIA, December 12, 2023 — Reinforcing its commitment to expand access to Simply Excellent Hearing Care for everyone that needs it, leading hearing care retailer HearUSA today announced the opening of a Hearing Center of the Future in Huntington Beach at 7251 Warner Avenue, Suite A. 

The new Huntington Beach location joins a growing network of existing HearUSA Hearing Centers of the Future in California, Texas, and Florida that are part of a multi-year plan to roll out new centers across the country — expanding access to hearing care for the estimated 48 million Americans living with hearing loss.

The new Huntington Beach center features a consumer-friendly environment where clients can explore prescription hearing aids from leading brands like Widex and Signia, as well as over the counter (OTC) hearing aid solutions from Sony – all at affordable prices. They can also receive a complimentary hearing evaluation, experience simulated hearing environments, and test various hearing aids with guidance from licensed Hearing Care Professionals (HCPs).

Also included with this opening is a HearUSA HearAcademy Learning Center, only the second in the country, where current HCPs can receive ongoing training to stay up to date with advances in hearing care technology and services, ensuring HearUSA clients always receive Simply Excellent Hearing Care at all centers nationwide. The first HearAcademy Learning Center opened in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida earlier this year. 

The HearAcademy Learning Center also serves as a training ground for participants in the HearUSA Hearing Instrument Specialist (HIS) Apprentice Program, which empowers apprentices to get the education and clinical experience they need to become licensed Hearing Instrument Specialists. 

“HearUSA HCPs are ready to provide Southern California residents with the highest possible quality of professional hearing care in a new, client-friendly environment that empowers them to take the first step on the life-changing journey toward better hearing," Nick Mengerink, President of HearUSA, said today. “At the same time, our HearAcademy Learning Center enables us to  enhance our professional development initiatives, while being more convenient for current and prospective HCPs living on the West Coast.”

HearUSA Hearing Centers of the Future

The HearUSA Hearing Centers of the Future are designed from the ground up to make accessing hearing care easier and more client-centric than ever before.

All centers feature a new design concept that is modern, innovative, welcoming, and engaging; open spaces and product displays; key touchpoints that include a welcome hub, solutions wall, as well as calming and professional consultation rooms.

At the core of the center experience are HearUSA HCPs, who are equipped to help clients discover and understand the latest in innovative hearing aids and their various capabilities – like wireless connectivity to their smartphone, laptop, or tablet – that are necessary for their successful adoption.

HearUSA’s unique Hear Better Today program provides clients with hearing aids the same day they are evaluated and fitted so they don’t have to wait to experience the life changing benefits that hearing aids deliver.

The company’s leadership in insurance also enables clients to get the most from their benefits and flexible financing plans further expand access to better hearing. What’s more, HearUSA is committed to making sure all clients can immediately experience the benefits of hearing aids with its no-risk trial program.

“With the opening of this new Hearing Center of the Future in Huntington Beach, our local HCPs are equipped with a complete portfolio of the world’s best diagnostic tools, hearing aid solutions, and financing options for all area residents, across all levels of hearing loss and budget,” HCP Vanessa Espinoza said. “If you live in this great community and need a hearing aid, HearUSA can help you — guaranteed.” 

“For our HCPs, the HearAcademy Learning Center represents an entirely new opportunity for them to receive onboarding, ongoing professional development, manufacturer collaborations, and continuing education without having to travel across the country. It also allows us to provide hands-on training for our HIS Apprentices,” said HCP Katherine Yeh.

HearUSA was recently named America’s number one hearing care retailer as part of Newsweek and Statista Inc.’s America's Best Retailers 2023.
