Proficiency in Spanish would be a plus.
Expert Hearing Care, formerly known as Advanced Hearing Care, has enriched the communication experiences of patients since 1993. The practice blossomed to four locations throughout southern New Mexico, Alamogordo, Ruidoso, Roswell, and the main location, Las Cruces, NM. Now the practice is centered only in Las Cruces, as we have sold the other locations to a previous audiologist, who is operating under our original name, Advanced Hearing Care. Our practice, Expert Hearing Care of Las Cruces, is one of the fastest growing practices in the western United States; it is an elite, boutique practice and is the premier hearing health care practice in all of the southwest territory. The practice has been voted “Best of the Best” by the local population and provides multiple externships for the top academic programs in the nation.
The practice has the most modern equipment and offers a comprehensive approach to the science of hearing, from state-of-the-art diagnostic testing services and digital hearing technology, to assistive technology and rehabilitative therapy.
We live and work by our motto: “Care that is state of the art. Dedication from the heart.” The senior audiologist/owner, Dr. Kelly (Frost) Churchill, has 35+ years experience dedicated to helping patients with their hearing care needs and working with and managing small teams of audiologists and externs. Our audiologists have consistently been nationally recognized as Elite Providers by Audigy. Because our patient base is growing rapidly, we are growing rapidly. There is plenty of opportunity and room for personal, professional, career, and financial achievement.
New Mexico is called the "Land of Enchantment" because once you experience it, it steals your heart. One grows to love the people and the wide open blue skies, the mountain pines, the amazing vistas, the clean air, and the beautiful color-filled sunrises and sunsets.
Nestled in the fertile Mesilla Valley between the majestic Organ Mountains National Monument and the meandering Rio Grande, Las Cruces is situated near the "bread-basket" for New Mexico produce. Las Cruces is quickly becoming a popular southwestern destination. Senior citizens from all over the country and from a diversity of high-level professional careers have chosen to retire here, and this continuing influx has created a growing, diverse, and stimulating patient base. The medical community is growing rapidly in response to the growth of the city.
Our ideal climate provides superb year-round sunny weather (350 days per year) and moderate “spring and fall” temperatures for 10 months out of the year. Our location provides access to cities such as Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Tucson, El Paso, and historically rich locations such as Old Mesilla, Cloudcroft, White Sands National Monument, and the Gila National Forest. New Mexico State University anchors the intellectual and artistic culture of the city. The local history is rich and the people are warm and open. We boast a weekly farmers market in our renovated down town; we abound with world-class Mexican food! The city of Las Cruces has received several awards including rankings from Money magazine as one of the “best college towns to retire” and from AARP as one of their “dream towns” to retire. Las Cruces has also been ranked by Forbes as one of the best small metro areas for business and careers.
