In 1996, the Center was expanded to include audiology services. The Center formally merged with Phelps Memorial Hospital Center in 2001. The Institute for Voice and Swallowing Disorders was established in 2005 to provide specialized services to children and adults with vocal pathology or swallowing dysfunction.
