HISTORY

The Lions Hearing Center of Michigan was founded in 1999 as a partnership between local Lions Districts, the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Wayne State University, and the Detroit Medical Center. Dr. Robert Mathog, the current Chair of the Department of Otolaryngology and of the Board of Directors for the Lions Hearing Center, spearheaded the formation and development of the Lions Hearing Center.

The inauguration of the first Hearing Center at the University Health Center was held in November 2000. In 2004, the Lions Clubs International Foundation approved the Lions Hearing Center as an official Lions organization. Shortly after, the Lions Hearing Center expanded their outreach efforts to Bloomfield Hills and Southfield. In September of 2004, the Lions Hearing Center acquired a tax-exempt and 501(c) 3 status from the Internal Revenue Service, which it still holds today.

During the first few years, the Lions Hearing Center provided services in the tri-county area, and was known as the Lions Hearing Center of Southeastern Michigan. The Hearing Aid Assistance Program was expanded by establishing multiple branches throughout the state of Michigan. Thus the Hearing Center became the Lions Hearing Center of Michigan. Currently the primary hearing center locations are in Southfield, Dearborn and Rochester Michigan.
