New Look Vision Announces Hearing Care Initiatives
New Look Vision Group Inc. announced that it has entered into agreements to launch hearing care initiatives on a pilot project basis in certain of its retail optical locations in Quebec, Ontario, British Columbia and Nova Scotia. In Quebec, beginning in May 2019, services offered will include hearing screening and full professional auditory services provided by the audiologists of Polyclinique de l’oreille, and complete hearing aid services provided by Le Groupe Forget, audioprosthetists, both managed by Les services de Location Hearing Care of America (“SLHCA”) . Avenir Hearing will provide the services outside of Quebec, starting in June 2019.
Antoine Amiel, President and Chief Executive Officer of New Look Vision stated “Hearing care has been a long-time endeavour of New Look Vision’s based on successful precedents, particularly in Europe. The patient demographics and journey is strikingly similar to eye care. It is a natural extension of the services we can deliver in our existing stores. Our chosen partners share our values and outlook. Everyone at New Look Vision is very much looking forward to working and learning with them”.
Steve Forget, President and Chief Executive Officer of SLHCA inc. said that “This agreement will allow Groupe Forget, Audioprosthetists and Polyclinique de l’oreille to have new points of contact with potential patients and excellent visibility.”
Dr. Denis LeBlanc, President of Avenir Hearing added “Avenir Hearing, with our purpose to restore the hope, health and happiness of all those affected by hearing loss, is very happy to have partnered with a like minded company such as New Look Vision. We look forward to our first wave of clinics and the positive impact we will have on people’s lives.”
