If there is one thing that Rick Shinto and Penelope Kokkinides realize, it would be the value of teamwork. The two have worked together in many different capacities and they have been a large part of why the InnovaCare team is well-respected as a medical organization today. Naturally, both of their roles are very important.
First of all, Rick Shinto and Penelope Kokkinides both have an immense amount of experience in healthcare leadership, and that is one of the main reasons why they have become such a cohesive unit in leading InnovaCare. Before working at InnovaCare, Rick Shinto was CEO of Aveta, Inc. He also held a CEO position at MMM Healthcare, Inc. and PMC Medicare Choice, Inc. He also served as the Corporate Vice President of Medical Management for MedPartners from 1996 to 1997. He elected to leave that position to take on the role of Chief Medical Officer for Cal Optima Health Plan in Orange County, California.
Likewise, Penelope Kokkinides also has had a wealth of experience before joining InnovaCare Health. She worked as the Vice President of Disease Management and PM at AmeriChoice from 2004 to 2006 and then like Rick Shinto she also joined Aveta, Inc. from 2006 to 2008, working as the Vice President of Clinical Operations. She has held several Chief Operating Officer positions, including a five-year stint from 2009 to 2014 at InnovaCare Health. She then spent a year at the Centerlight Health System as the Executive Vice President before returning to InnovaCare Health as Chief Administrative Officer.
Penelope Kokkinides and Rick Shinto both credit these past experiences for helping them improve their management skill sets in order to be an asset for InnovaCare Health. Kokkinides and Shinto realize that drawing on each other’s experiences is an important way of bringing InnovaCare Health into the future. With the leadership of both of these individuals, InnovaCare is sure to continue to grow and make an impact in the medical field. The key for any company is who is present at the top, and both Shinto and Kokkinides are driven to succeed at InnovaCare Health. The future is very bright indeed for this company.
