Expanded newborn screening service speeds test results

Posted on April 21, 2015 7:07 am by Kim Swindell Wood

The majority of babies born in Tennessee are healthy, free from diseases and disorders. A few, however, arrive with rare conditions or illnesses that may be treated more effectively if identified early. For this reason, the Tennessee Department of Health has expanded its newborn screening laboratory testing to six days a week and is increasing testing to cover more disorders. In 2014, the State Public Health Laboratory conducted screenings for 80,542 newborns in Tennessee. Of these, 151 were identified with diseases or disorders.
