BC Adult Cochlear Implant Program Temporary Closure

Due to COVID-19, the BC Adult Cochlear Implant Program has been directed to temporarily cancel all in person visits until May 8th, 2020.  This date may be extended if deemed necessary.  Relevant updates to the CI program will be posted here as they become available.

CI patients with appointments will be contacted shortly to cancel their appointments.  When the CI program reopens, patients will be rescheduled in the order they were originally booked.  If you have urgent CI equipment issues, please contact:

Expansion of Cochlear Implant Candidacy Criteria

Although the BC Adult Cochlear Implant Program has not received any increases in funding, the cochlear implant team at St. Paul's Hospital is currently reviewing the possibility of expanding the existing cochlear implant candidacy criteria to help a greater number of BC adults who can benefit from cochlear implants to access them.  Please discuss with your ENT if you may benefit from a referral to the cochlear implant clinic.
