This medical access approach will certainly benefit both the patient and HearAtLast as simple issues like ceruman management and third party sign off will be much more convenient for the patient with a physician nearby. The current process of inconveniencing patients for third party signoff can be drastically reduced by working with the physicians within the store.
These openings also puts HearAtLast on the cusp of being Canada's largest wholly-owned chain of Hearing Stores. Other operators such as Listen Up has 30 locations, Helix with 23 locations was sold earlier this month sold for $23.7M. Beltone hearing clinics has 30 locations and Island Acoustics has 45 locations although many of these locations are satellite locations.
"We are very proud of our growth and progress in the short time that we have been developing our Hearing Stores and we will continue in our development expansion to become Canada's leader and largest Hearing Store", commented HearAtLast's CEO, Matthew Sacco.
