Award received

PLATTSBURGH — Champlain Valley Audiology, PLLC, was honored recently with a Small Business Administration Small Business Excellence Award at the Desmond Hotel in Albany.

The SBA and the New York Business Development Corp. hosted the 14th-annual luncheon to recognize the achievements of local small businesses.

The North Country Small Business Development Center nominated Champlain Audiology, owned by Dr. Sharon Macner. The business provides clients of all ages with comprehensive hearing care, which includes diagnostic services, rehabilitative services and pediatric care.

Macner opened the practice with the goal of improving the quality of life for her patients through thoughtful evaluations and management of hearing loss. CVA is built on the founding principal of providing outstanding clinical and personal service to its hearing-impaired patients and their families. Since opening, CVA has captured a large segment of the market share of audiological care in the Champlain Valley with a client base that has grown to more than 1,500 patients.

Small businesses are selected for the awards based on their company's longevity, innovation, sales growth, increased employment, ability to overcome adversity or community contributions.
