Mid-Coastal California Perinatal Outreach Program (MCCPOP)

The Mid-Coastal California Perinatal Outreach Program (MCCPOP) provides a comprehensive clinical service line, including obstetrical and neonatal services. The MCCPOP team consults on questions of clinical care and educates medical providers on how to manage the care of complex patients. MCCPOP also offers continuing education for nurses and behavioral science professionals in the spring and fall. Each January, the Annual MCCPOP Perinatal Potpourri is held in Monterey, CA.

Our Division serves as the coordinating center for MCCPOP, and the program is connected with the Johnson Center for Pregnancy and Newborn Services at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. MCCPOP has outreach relationships with 10 centers across the mid-coastal region from San Mateo County to San Luis Obispo.

Regional Cooperation Agreements (RCAs) are required by California Children’s Services (CCS) for all hospitals seeking CCS approval for their Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs). These agreements define the relationships between large regional NICUs and those smaller, more basic units that refer their patients to the regional NICUs for more advanced neonatal care.  Services include, but are not limited to, outreach education, data interpretation to inform quality improvement activities, patient consultation or co-management, and maternal/neonatal transport.  MCCPOP contracts with its referral hospitals to coordinate and conduct these outreach services on behalf of Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford.

Contact the MCCPOP office for more information on obtaining an RCA.
