Hampden Hearing Center was founded in 1980 by Kathryn P. (Kay) Gillispie in West Springfield, Massachusetts. Ms. Gillispie was one of the first audiologists in the country to start a private practice. The East Longmeadow office was opened in 1984 by Ms. Gillispie and Susan Bankoski Chunyk. Dr. Chunyk managed the practice at the East Longmeadow site while Ms. Gillispie continued to oversee the West Springfield office.
Hampden Hearing Center East relocated from its original location at 219 North Main Street to its current larger facility at 200 North Main Street in 1999. When Ms. Gillispie retired in 2002, the West Springfield office was closed and service is now provided at the East Longmeadow location. We welcome former West Springfield patients to come and see us.
