The Kiwanis Club of Jackson Hole recently completed its $25,000 pledge
to St. John’s Hospital Foundation for the purchase of a new audiology
booth for the audiology practice at St. John’s Medical Center. Kiwanis
raised funds for this gift through the Kiwanis Follies, its annual fundraiser.
“This gift allows St. John’s to be at the forefront of hearing
testing for all ages,” said John Goettler, president of the St.
John’s Hospital Foundation. “Thanks to Kiwanis, we’ve
purchased a state-of-the-art audiology booth that is ideally configured
for pediatric testing. It’s open and bright, with enough space for
a parent to be there with the child.”
The audiology booth features wall panels filled with three specific minerals,
providing optimal sound quality. The windows feature sound insulation,
while allowing caregivers to view the patient.
“An additional improvement in the new audiology booth is the roof-mounted
LED lighting system,” said St. John’s audiologist Rosanne
Prince, AuD. “The lights stay cool and operate on dimmer switches
to provide precise lighting levels. This is an important feature when
trying to get an infant to be comfortable or even go to sleep for tests
such as auditory brainstem response.”
St. John’s Audiology & Hearing Aids offers hearing testing for
all ages, hearing aid sales and repairs, and custom hearing protection.

“The mission of Kiwanis International is Serving the Children of
the World,” said Jackson Kiwanis Club president David Auge. “The
Jackson club does just that, by raising money to benefit the children
in Jackson and surrounding communities through projects like the pediatric
audiology booth.” The club meets on the first and third Thursday
of the month from 12:05 to 1 pm in the Subaru dealership conference room.
