Today, the Pennsylvania Ear Institute (PEI) officially celebrates its 15 year anniversary.

On November 7, PEI celebrated this milestone with an event hosted by Dr. Lindsay Bondurant, director of PEI.

Since its opening on November 19, 2004, PEI has enjoyed growth in space, faculty, students and patients.
 
PEI expanded its original area in February 2008 and renovated that space in the fall of 2014 to help ensure patients are offered the best clinical facility for their hearing and balance needs. PEI offers many specialty services, including Auditory Processing evaluations, Cochlear Implant care, Falls Risk assessment, Tinnitus and Hyperacusis management and Vestibular Rehabilitation.
 
In 2017, PEI installed new state of the art equipment allowing for more advanced hearing evaluations and more comprehensive vestibular evaluations. In the October of this year, PEI opened a satellite office at The Eye Institute’s Oak Lane site.

Dr. Bondurant thanked all who attended and cited the growth enjoyed by the clinical facility since its opening and most notably in the past year with the increase in patient visits. “We wouldn’t be here without the support of our staff, faculty, students and patients and I wanted to acknowledge this with a thank you celebration,” said Dr. Bondurant.

Salus University president, Dr. Michael Mittelman, congratulated PEI faculty, staff and students for their outstanding patient care over the past 15 years as well as the University’s Osborne College of Audiology (OCA) for their successful program over the last 20 years. “This is a testament to the great audiology program, clinic and services provided by Salus University,” said Dr. Mittelman.

Attendees enjoyed appetizers, wine, cupcakes and a sheet cake decorated for the 15th Anniversary, while mingling among colleagues, students, faculty, alumni, patients and friends.
