InnovaCare is a well-known and familiar name in the healthcare industry. Many people who work in that industry are truly aware of this great company, its great leadership, how successful it is, and how much it helps its clients. Indeed, many people aspire to reach the levels of professionalism and integrity and honesty that InnovaCare Health demonstrates in all of its business dealings and its dealings with clients.
At InnovaCare, the main focus and ideals that it has, meaning the thing that matters to them most, is that patients come first. They strive their best so that patients should get the care that is due to them, regardless of InnovaCare’s own personal interests. InnovaCare does not put itself before its patients; it puts its patients before itself.
This approach is a direct result of the influence and leadership qualities of InnovaCare’s CEO, Rick Shinto. Richard Shinto is an M.D. who has loads of experience — twenty years — in the healthcare field. Before working with InnovaCare, he worked with Aveta. First, he worked with Aveta as part of its management team. In 2008, he was promoted to President and Chief Executive Officer of Aveta. This went on until 2012, when Aveta was sold. That’s when he became President and Chief Executive Officer of InnovaCare. Under his leadership, InnovaCare has flourished.
Dr. Shinto was also Chief Medical Officer of both NAMM California, Medical Pathways Management Company (where he was also the Chief Operating Officer), and for California Optima Health Plan for Orange County in California.
Dr. Shinto has many awards and achievements on innovacarehealth.com, including his B.S. from the University of California at Irvine, a medical degree at State University of New York at Stony Brook, and an M.B.A. from the University of Redlands.
The next secret to the success of Innovacare Health is the Chief Administrative Officer of InnovaCare, Penelope Kokkinides. Although she now serves as Chief Administrative Officer since 2015, she has previously worked with the company as Chief Operating Officer.
Before working with InnovaCare, Penelope Kokkinides had worked as as Chief Operating Officer in many companies, including Centerlight Healthcare (where she was also Executive Vice President), Touchstone Health, and also as Corporate Vice President for Care Management and Disease Management at AmeriChoice, which is a business unit of Unitedhealth Group.
