The Team

Passionate. Mission-centric. Dedicated. Thankful.

That’s who you’ll meet when walking into our donor centers, onto a mobile or into a meeting with members of the CBC team.

We’re about 150 employees strong, ranging in geographic locations, professional responsibilities and expertise. One common thread our team has is that we all feel passionately about serving our communities and are appreciative of those who help us fulfill our mission. More than anything, we are respectful of the amazing gift our community provides to the patients at our local hospitals.

Get to know the team dedicated to advancing our mission and serving our community. Perhaps you’re interested in joining us?
