Orangeville Hearing Clinic, the first local hearing clinic, was established in 1988. Shortly thereafter in 1990, in conjunction with local Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist) services, Alliston Audiology was established as a weekly outpatient clinic at Stevenson Memorial Hospital.
Peter Kirchberger, Doctor of Audiology, took over the two practices, Orangeville Hearing Clinic and Alliston Audiology, in 1998. With an emphasis on clinical excellence, Peter began implementing a variety of new services and procedures. In recognition of clinical excellence, he served as a consultant and lead author of the PRACTICE STANDARDS FOR THE PROVISION OF HEARING AID SERVICES BY AUDIOLOGISTS by the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists (CASLPO). Peter was selected to provide services from the Infant Hearing Program of Ontario in 2010.
The continued growth of both practices necessitated their expansion. In 2008, Alliston Audiology moved from the outpatient clinic at Stevenson Memorial Hospital to the current larger facility at Windsor House. In 2014, Orangeville Hearing Clinic increased its physical space. Eric Irvine, Audiologist, joined the practice after graduating in 2013 and after working on a part-time basis as a student. In 2021, Janine Mahoney began her final clinical placement with Peter and joined the practice later that year.
Janine, Eric and Peter continue to emphasize the latest technology and equipment and assist with beta testing important audiology equipment, thereby bringing the latest updates to our patients as quickly as possible.
