The goal of the newborn screening program at Hi-Desert Medical Center, a part of the Desert Care Network, is to detect health problems in newborns. The faster you discover a health issue, the earlier you can start treating it.
Screening can help prevent developmental delays or other concerns as newborns grow. We provide your newborn’s initial screenings during your stay..

Newborn Screening Tests
Doctors will check your baby’s eyes, heart, hips and more after birth prior to hospital discharge to ensure normal development and function.
A hearing screening is provided soon after your baby is born to help identify babies with potential hearing loss.
