Our History


Deb Swift started Swift Hearing Aid Service in the back office of an old soda fountain pharmacy in Belle Vernon, Pa. in 1987. The Pharmacist sent her customers back to Deb for hearing tests.

Then the Pharmacist built a new Pharmacy across the street and put in two small rooms for Deb. She did not charge her rent initially and then as Deb built the business, she began paying rent and hired Susan Imburgia at the front desk. Mabel Fries gave Deb the opportunity to do what she was called to do with her life. Help people hear better.

Within three years, Deb opened another office in Washington, Pa on E. Maiden St.

See What We Do

Susan Imburgia remained with Deb for 20 years and then retired. She has passed from cancer recently. Deb always tributes Susan as her right hand and would not have been able to build the business without her. She is missed by Deb to this day.

The office on E. Maiden St. was moved to our current location on N. Franklin Dr. off Chestnut St, next to Angelos restaurant, in the Dr. Caimano’s building. We have been in Washington for 33 years.

In 2009, Deb opened a one room service center in a Medical Spa Peters Twp. on Washington road. Marion Wilson worked for Deb part time. Gradually Deb opened a full time office on Washington Rd. with Marion at the front desk. We then moved to our current location on Washington road next to S.H. Village in approx. 2014.

Our N. Hills location was originally purchased from a colleague on Perry Highway in 2005. We are currently located at 6000 Babcock Rd, near Mcknight Rd., Not far from Ross Park Mall.

Our Allison Park Office was purchased from a colleague in 2014. We are on Wm Flynn Hwy on Rt 8.
