InnovaCare’s Leadership: Dr. Shinto & Penelope Kokkinides

A company’s vision must be clear to achieve their mission. In most cases, companies usually have the vision, but it’s not entirely clear. That’s where the company’s leadership comes into play. With the right leaders, it’s only a matter of time before a company experiences success. For InnovaCare Health, success means a better quality of life for their patients. The first step to achieve that goal is redefining today’s complex healthcare management environment. InnovaCare also wants to create more sustainable models of managed care. Luckily, InnovaCare has the perfect group of leaders to get the job done.

Part of their perfect team is Dr. Richard Shinto. Dr. Shinto is the quintessential physician. It’s was a brilliant move on InnovaCare’s part to bring him into the company. Since joining InnovaCare, Dr. Shinto worked his way up to President and CEO.

This comes after one of his greatest accomplishments. It’s nearly impossible for American companies to success in other countries, but somehow, Dr. Shinto led InnovaCare to international success. Thanks to Dr. Shinto’s efforts, InnovaCare is now the number one provider of managed in Puerto Rico. Afterward, he was named CEO of the company’s Health Plans subsidiary.

Even more to Dr. Shinto credit, he maintains his medical tenure in Southern California. Like all great physicians, he’s actually a licensed doctor; practicing as an internist and pulmonologist. Even more, he’s a published author, writing dozens of articles about his specialties: clinical and operational healthcare.

The other half of InnovaCare’s leadership brilliance is Penelope Kokkinides. This is Kokkinides’s second time work with InnovaCare. She originally left the company to explore other options, but InnovaCare’s making the most progress in the industry. Before leaving, she served as COO. Upon her return, she was named the new Chief Administrative Officer.

In truth, no one can do a better job than Penelope Kokkinides. She’s spent more than 20 years working in the managed care industry, specializing in working with government programs. She’s even an expert at developing and implementing clinical programs and health models. Many of her techniques lead to improved efficiencies and organizational infrastructure.

Kokkinides only barely out-shines Dr. Shinto. Dr. Shinto has a practicing medical license, but Penelope Kokkinides has three master’s degrees and one bachelor’s degree.
