At the heart of the InnovaCare team would the CEO Rick Shinto and the COO/CAO Penelope Kokkinides. With these two individuals at the helm, this company continues to be dedicated to providing the best quality healthcare for people throughout the United States. InnovaCare primarily operates with individuals who are participating in the Medicare Advantage Plans and who need quality physician care plans. Rick Shinto and Penelope Kokkinides truly make a great team, and one of the main reasons for that would be because of their combined experience in previous positions.
First of all, Rick Shinto brings a wealth of experience to his current position. Before he became CEO of InnovaCare Health in 2012, he was CEO of Aveta, inc., joining them in 2008 and working in management. Dr. Shinto has also served as chief executive officer of MMM Healthcare and was the CMO and Operations Manager for Pathways Management Company. However, before he rose to his current positions in medical leadership, Dr. Shinto had started out as an internist and pulmonologist in Southern California.
Of course, Penelope Kokkinides has a resume that is every bit as impressive. Kokkinides has twenty years of experience working with government programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. She also worked as Chief Management Officer for Centerlight running the entire managed care division of the facility. She then graduated from that position to work as Touchstone Health as the head of operations. She also has held a position as a corporate VP for the care management and disease management area of AmeriChoice. Interestingly enough, she has held two stints within the InnovaCare health company. The first time she was chief operating officer and then she left for another position. When she returned, she became the new chief administrative officer of InnovaCare.
Dr. Shinto knows that he couldn’t effectively run the InnovaCare health team without the help of dedicated professionals like Penelope Kokkinides. He, himself, is also a dedicated professional, and he has won many awards during his career. One of the most memorable ones would have been the coveted Entrepreneur of the Year award, which he earned in 2012 just about taking on his present role at InnovaCare Health. With these two leaders, InnovaCare Health will continue to reach for the sky.
