Waverly, IA – The Waverly Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors attended two ribbon cuttings in March and presented two established businesses with Progress Awards.

Hearing Unlimited, formerly in Waverly Health Center, recently changed its name to NewSound Hearing Centers and relocated to a modern, state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment center at 2401 Fourth Street Southwest in Waverly. “This move to our new location has afforded us new diagnostic equipment and treatment systems to provide a higher level of care — this is a major advantage for our county’s citizens,” said Clinic Director Annette Redman, doctor of audiology.

The practice sees adults for treatment of all types of hearing problems. Services include hearing evaluations, video otoscopy for ear canal examinations, hearing aid sales, hearing aid fitting and programming, tinnitus (ringing in the ears) evaluations, verification of benefit procedures, fitting of hearing protection, aural rehabilitation and hearing aid repairs.

The Ambassadors also attended a ribbon cutting at the new physical therapy clinic, Athletico. Athletico Waverly is conveniently located in the strip mall next to Hy-Vee and Miller True Value. They offer a variety of physical therapy, rehabilitation and work comp services to help patients get back to doing what they love to do. As part of their commitment to patient care, the clinic offers convenient hours, including early mornings and evenings.

“I look forward to sharing my excitement, passion and strong clinical skills with the Waverly community. Our easily accessible clinic will offer patients flexibility in their schedule and reduced wait times for initiating therapy.” – Clinic Manager, Stephanie Bradley-Diehl, DPT, ATC, CMPT
