Our History

The idea for a Center to treat communication disorders originiated from a health needs survey conducted by the Danville Jaycees in 1959.

Danville Speech and Hearing Center opened its doors in 1961 in two rooms of the Health Department building. (Corner of Main and Rison St. in Danville, VA where a medical office now sits.)
