Kimray Inc. commits $250,000 to Hough Ear Institute

The INTEGRIS Foundation celebrates this wonderful philanthropic advancement of one of our Center’s of Excellence, Hough Ear Institute, in the fight to cure deafness.

The Hough Ear Institute (HEI) recently received a $250,000 commitment from Kimray Inc., an Oklahoma City-based manufacturer of oil and gas control equipment, for research to cure deafness.

“We are extremely excited to partner with Kimray in an effort to find cures for hearing and balance issues,” said Steve Trice, HEI board chair. “Kimray is a great company that generously shares their resources with those committed to making life better for mankind.” 

The donation will be spread over five years to help support current HEI research, including a pill to help prevent and treat acute hearing loss caused by excessive noise and a treatment to regenerate lost sensory hair cells to restore hearing for most causes of nerve deafness.

Around the world, there are 300 million people affected with hearing loss and 26 million Americans affected by noise induced hearing loss, according to the National Institute of Deafness and Other Communication Disorders. The military is one sector that hearing loss most significantly affects, which can result in decreased productivity, opportunity and quality of life for veterans.

“Since 40 to 60 percent of military personnel returning from combat have substantial hearing loss from loud noise, this contribution gives us the opportunity to help provide a solution for those affected,” said Kimray CEO David Hill. “Kimray is also very proud to support an organization dedicated to curing deafness worldwide through Christian principles.”

“Kimray’s financial commitment is a real blessing,” said HEI CEO Dr. Rick Kopke. “Their gift goes a long way in helping to sustain our research scientists as we seek to cure deafness one patient and one disease at a time. The people of Kimray may be assured that our efforts to find cures for deafness and hearing related illnesses have been immeasurably aided by their gift.”

About Hough Ear Institute

The Hough Ear Institute is a nonprofit research, educational and humanitarian service institute. As a Center of Excellence of INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center (IBMC), the IBMC Cochlear Implant Clinic and Hearing Enrichment Language Program are an integral part of the institute. HEI also interacts with Otologic Medical Clinic Inc. and Audio Recovery Inc. All of these entities are located within the Hough Ear Institute campus. In addition, research collaborations exist between the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation and Oklahoma State University.
