Eagle Health, LLC, a subsidiary of Cape Fox Corporation, announces a three-year contract award with the United States Army in support of the Army Hearing Program. For this program, Eagle Health fills a critical need to eliminate the backlog of Army personnel who require annual hearing exams and who have been unable to complete them due to COVID-19. The Eagle Health team will consist of 32 Audiology Technicians serving 22 clinics across the United States.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Army has continued to look for ways to protect public health while following social distancing guidelines. This proactive approach includes reducing the number of personnel obtaining hearing examinations simultaneously within testing booths, implementing new disinfection procedures, increasing the time between appointments for air exchange in each booth, and providing alternatives to the current audio-booth based system. Eagle Health’s Audiology Technicians will allow the Army to increase capacity, performing these hearing tests to evaluate hearing thresholds. The Eagle Health team will also partner with the Army in using the new boothless audiometers to more efficiently administer hearing exams regardless of location, whether in the clinic, waiting room or at other facilities on their respective Army installations.
“We are excited to partner with the Army while providing exceptional customer experiences and emphasizing health and safety,” said President Harold Mitchell, JD, MS, “The Army Hearing Program is key to enhancing hearing readiness and conservation.”
