Newborn Screening Program

Newborn Tests Can Provide Early Diagnoses

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..
