The hospital performance report provides a quarterly ranking of Mississippi hospitals’ collection and handling of newborn screening specimens. The goal for the Mississippi Newborn Screening program is for all hospitals to have 99% acceptable specimens.

Performance results are based on the percentage of dried blood spot specimens that were unsatisfactory or unacceptable due to improper collection and/or transport.

The following birthing hospitals are recognized for achieving satisfactory ratings of 5 stars (top performing) or 4 stars (meeting expectations) for the collection of newborn screening specimens. Their hard work and continuing efforts set the standard for other birthing facilities in the state.
