Ear, Nose & Throat Center

The CMC Ear, Nose, and Throat was established in 1999 to serve as the first “one sitting-ne setting” diagnostic unit of ear, nose and throat problems in a private hospital. It has provided primary treatment of common ear, nose and throat ailments.

The Voice and Swallowing Clinic, the first of its kind, was set up to address the needs of a specific group of patients – voice professionals (teachers, preachers, singers) and dysphagic (e.g. post stroke) individuals. Staffed by trained otolaryngologist and speech-language pathologists. It integrates phonomedicine and phonorehabilitation in a multidisciplinary and integrated fashion. The CMC Ear, Nose, and Throat Center is equipped with state-of-the-art technology for the diagnosis treatment and rehabilitation of disorders of the ear, nose, and throat (ENT).

Newborn Hearing Test

The Newborn Hearing Screening Program (NHSP) of Capitol Medical Center under the Department of Pediatrics aims to identify moderate, severe and profound hearing impairment in newborn babies. The program automatically offers all parents, the opportunity to have their baby's hearing tested shortly after birth. Early identification, via the program, gives babies a better ‘life chance' of developing speech and language skills and of making the most of social and emotional interaction from an early age.
