Monroe County’s longest standing provider of hearing health, educational and clinical services is marking a milestone anniversary. Rochester Hearing & Speech Center is celebrating 100 years of helping people to improve their hearing and speech health so that they can live life to the fullest.

“We are so proud of the incredible legacy we’ve built over the past 100 years in helping children and adults develop the skills they need to communicate for life,” said Bob Russell, president and chief executive officer. “We will be celebrating with our current and former clients, families and staff and telling their amazing stories in a variety of ways all year long.”

Numerous activities are planned throughout RHSC’s 100th anniversary year, culminating with a signature event to celebrate the milestone. RHSC will host its 100th anniversary gala at 6 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 10, at Locust Hill Country Club.
