 Helping babies get started on the right foot


The Newborn Screening (NBS) Program officially screens infants born in Wisconsin for 44 disorders, hearing loss, and critical congenital heart disease (CCHD), and is compliant with the 31 disorders that are on the nationally recommended panel.

The Wisconsin Newborn Screening website is dedicated to promoting and encouraging the sharing of knowledge, communication and resources with healthcare agencies, families, and anyone else interested in NBS for the benefit of babies born in Wisconsin.
