Firestarter Spotlight - Robert Calzadillas

Join us in congratulating Robert Calzadillas, Transportation Driver, on his Firestarter Award!

Robert is known for being positive and upbeat in the workplace. He is customer focused from the moment he picks up a patient at their home, transports them safely to their appointment, helps his co-workers with shipping and receiving freight, delivers packages around the clinic, and then takes patients back home.

He shows excellent Work Place Behavior by being able to multitask and take care of both employees and patients. Robert often volunteers his time at many events such as the Connell Fall Festival, CBHA Run for a Cause: 5K Color Run, Fourth of July events, and Othello Community Cleanup Day. He also participates in numerous staff-organized events such as CBHA Sports Days/Nights, Volleyball, and Bowling Tournaments.

We are so happy to have him on our team and can’t wait to see the bigger impact he will make on our community!
