A $15-million donation to the Department of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine will create a new hearing center focused on restoring functional hearing in people with congenital and acquired hearing loss.
The center will be named for the donor, David M. Rubenstein, philanthropist, co-CEO of The Carlyle Group, and trustee of Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Medicine. It will include the Division of Otology and Neurotology, the Division of Audiology and the Listening Center.
A key research area for the center will be system-based hearing restoration, with a focus on novel approaches to protect and repair the inner ear and to ensure effective connectivity with the brain. Clinical services will include care coordination, patient and family education, trials of new hearing devices, and enhanced patient access and outreach.
