Name our new room

Cochlear Family members suggest a name for our new room.

We have been undergoing a total refurbishment of our office over the past few months. As part of the changes we’re making, we have created a specially designed room where we will be able to talk to those who have had or are considering a hearing implant from Cochlear and their families in a quiet and comfortable environment.

Last month we asked members of our Cochlear Family community to suggest a name for this new room and we were inundated with responses! Our refurb steering committee reviewed the suggestions and a winning name was chosen.

The name of our new room is ‘Quintus’, a suggestion submitted by mum Charlotte on behalf of daughter Olivia. Quintus Pedius was the first recorded deaf person in history who lived during Roman times. A relative of Emperor Augustus and talented young painter, he lived to the age of only 13 years.

Here is a visualisation of what the room will look like. We are so excited to start using it when it is finished in the coming weeks.

The Quintus Room

Thank you to everyone who suggested a name for this new room, you had such fantastic ideas it’s a shame we couldn’t use them all.
