In celebration of its service, PDSH will host a fundraiser at Seminar Brewing on September 13, 2018 from 6:30-8:30. The event will feature food, drinks, games, and a ½&½ raffle, with music provided by Felonious Funk (featuring former members of the Woodys). The Center staff and board members invite the public to come share our celebration of 50 years of service to the community, while looking forward to continuing to serve the Pee Dee. Tickets to the event will be available for purchase at the Center, and through Eventbrite and the Center’s Facebook page. Corporate and business sponsorships are also available.

Then and Now

In the Fall of 1968, with the help of a group of notable community leaders and many local businesses, Pee Dee Speech & Hearing Center opened its doors to serve the community. First located on McQueen Street, the Center later moved to its current location at 153 E. NB Baroody Street. Of particular note, the current Center’s building was funded in part by the talents of famed entertainer Bob Hope, who came to Florence and performed to help raise money for the building. From the early days of the Center, the mission of the Center has been to provide the latest state-of-the-art speech therapy and audiology treatment and diagnostics to the Pee Dee region of South Carolina. Today, the Center is visited over 5000 times a year by those needing help. From newborns to the eldest in the community, the Pee Dee Speech & Hearing Center continues with great pride and passion to help improve the quality of life for those who seek assistance.

About Pee Dee Speech & Hearing Center

The Pee Dee Speech & Hearing Center, celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2018, is a non-profit provider of speech-language and hearing services for people of all ages and social strata. Established by a group of community leaders in 1968, it was their desire to have a service to help all people in the Florence area who have hearing problems or speech problems regardless of their ability to pay. For more information, please visit or contact Dr. Dennis Burrows at 843-662-7802.
