Who We Are

Honoring Our History

The Colorado Perinatal Care Council (CPCC) was established to provide broad-based leadership in planning and coordinating statewide perinatal health care delivery.

  1. 1975

    Recommended & Founded

    We were founded by Governor Richard Lamm in response to a recommendation in the 1975 Colorado Health Systems Plan Framework developed by the Colorado Department of Health. Planning for the Council began in January 1976 and it has been operational since April of that year.

  2. 2015

    Transition & Name Change

    In March 2015, CPCC began the transition to a Perinatal Quality Collaborative [PQC] and changed its name to the Colorado Perinatal Care Quality Collaborative [CPCQC] to more accurately reflect its mission.

Our Future Is Bright

In 2018, CPCQC hired key staff through funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention grant and partnerships with Trailhead Institute, University of Denver, Denver Health and CDPHE. With strong leadership and experienced staff in place, CPCQC is positioned for accelerated progress.
