Providence Speech and Hearing Center Recognizes Partner Bruce May

Stuart Kane Partner, Bruce May, was recognized by Providence Speech and Hearing Center (PSHC) for his many years of service to the organization, including four years as President of the Board of Directors.

Founded in Santa Ana nearly fifty years ago by Sister Margaret Ann Inman, Providence is one of the great success stores in non-profit health care. Providence’s mission is Enriching Life through the Gifts of Speech and Hearing. Providence provides state-of-the-art speech therapy and audiology services to everyone from newborns to seniors, regardless of their ability to pay. Known as the Center of Excellence for its prowess in speech and audiology, Providence now operates seven facilities throughout Orange County that provide expert hearing aid fittings and therapy for every imaginable speech disorder.

Bruce has served on the Providence Board for more than a dozen years. In 2009, he was elected Board President at a time when Providence was experiencing major challenges with the economic downturn and the revolution in health care. During his tenure, Providence underwent dramatic expansion following a merger with Newport Speech, Hearing, and Language Centers, and embraced new opportunities to expand its reach under Affordable Care Act.

At the 48th Annual Benefit Event for Providence on November 9, Bruce was honored for his “joyful and uplifting leadership style” and for being “creative, innovative, and someone who gets things done.” Executive Director Linda Smith gave Bruce certificates of recognition from U.S. Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez and California Assemblyman Curt Hagman.  Click here to view this short video to hear testimonials about Bruce from former Providence Board Presidents.
