Reed Speech and Hearing Center has expanded into new professional areas, incorporate the latest technologies, and provided services to an increased number of patients who are referred to the Center.
  • In memory of her husband, a donor provided a generous grant to fund a pilot program that is testing the feasibility and impact of telehealth medicine.
  • A long-time supporter gives annually to Phelps Hospice, helping this program expand and develop initiatives like a new palliative care program that focuses on adults who are living with serious illnesses.
