CEO Karey Witty announces SMART Employees of the Quarter

(L-R) Adalia Cerrillo, Health Services Administrator Anthony Coleman, Chief Human Resources Officer Sally Powers and Dr. Leonora Muhammad

I am pleased to announce that the SMART employees for the fourth quarter of 2015 are Adalia Cerrillo (Perryville, AZ) and Leonora Muhammad (Healthcare Support Team, Missouri).

The SMART Employee of the Quarter award recognizes Corizon Health employees who consistently demonstrate excellence in their daily practice and who exemplify the CorizonSMART values (Safety, Motivation, Accountability, Respect, Teamwork) in all aspects of their role. They are nominated by colleagues and/or supervisors for this award.

Adalia Cerrillo, Lead Inventory Coordinator at Arizona State Prison Complex-Perryville, demonstrates a constant concern for patient safety in all aspects of her role. She has discovered multiple medication order errors and has immediately and professionally brought them to the attention of the responsible party. She is known to be a team player and believes in and contributes to the SMART values. She is able to successfully complete many tasks in addition to her regular responsibilities, and constantly finds innovative ways to teach and lead staff. She is ‘the reason that Perryville site receives the high marks that it does.’

Leonora Muhammad, Sr. Clinical and Education Training Specialist with the Missouri Healthcare Support Team, continually challenges her colleagues to base every decision on not only effective onboarding, but ensuring that new site leaders feel safe in their knowledge and environment. She accepts significant responsibility over and above her role and maintains deadlines and accountabilities in every area. She fosters an environment of contribution and invites free-thinking to garner best practices. Her ability to listen with an open mind and use her clinical skills proves vital to the success of not only her sub-team but the larger team as a whole.

Both of these outstanding professionals exemplify what it means to be CorizonSMART.
