Beltone Comes to Rockland, Hearing Impaired Will Benefit

The Beltone Hearing Care Center in New City opened its doors recently in a large grand opening ceremony, drawing in local officials and residents. Belltone is noted for having the latest in digital hearing aid technology available to its patients, including its “True” devices. These virtually invisible hearing aids are bluetooth compatible and can wirelessly receive sound from a TV, cell phone and many more devices using a 2.4 GHz Signal.

Founded in 1940, Chicago-based Beltone is part of the GN Hearing Care Group, utilizing advanced technology to produce hearing instruments sold in the United States, Canada and over 40 countries worldwide. Today, there are over 1,500 offices around North America serving the hearing impaired.

At the grand opening, Rockland County Legislator Ed Day, Town Economic Development Officer Catherine Nowicki, New City Chamber of Commerce President Steve Weissblatt, NCCC Treasurer Gary Oteri and Board Members Gillian Ballard, Bob Barilli and Roberta Adao all were in attendance.

Owner Edwin Ryan graciously welcomed all to his new facility. He was aided in the festivities by Beltone’s Operations Manager Jessica Bieler, as well as Byron Robertson, a hearing care specialist. Ryan said he had a hard time choosing a location, but is now satisfied with 365 South Main Street in New City.

“When looking to bring Beltone’s hearing instrument technology to Rockland County, we weren’t sure of the best location,” stated Ryan. “However, the warm reception we’ve received here in New City assures me that we made the right choice.”
