InnovaCare Health has strong leadership, which has reinforced the company’s approach to achieving the mission of redefining the management of health care, while meeting the expectations of its members.
The leadership within the company begins with the President and CEO Dr. Richard Shinto. After his tenure with Aveta Inc. as Chief Executive Officer from 2008 until 2012, Dr. Shinto was appointed to lead InnovaCare Health due to his extensive background within health care. Dr. Shinto has two decades of experience. He was previously a practicing physician as an internist; as well as having a specialty in pulmonary health, prior to becoming involved within health care insurance. Dr. Shinto received his medical degree upon graduation from the State University of New York, and he has an MBA from the University of Redlands.
InnovaCare Health’s leadership team includes Chief Administrative Officer Penelope Kokkinides. She has an expertise within government programs and previously held high-ranking leadership as the Corporate Vice President of Chronic Care Management and Disease Management at AmeriChoice, which at the time she was responsible for creating business models, for the company’s managed care and fee-for-service programs. This type of experience made Penelope Kokkinides ideally positioned to tailor the solutions and innovative services for InnovaCare Health. Ms. Kokkinides recently traveled to the White House to speak on an eight member panel with President Trump regarding the upcoming changes to government programs that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid oversee.
Both Dr. Shinto and Ms. Kokkinides are now joined by the newest member of the leadership team. Recently InnovaCare Health announced that Peter Rodes has now joined the company as Corporate Sales and Marketing Officer. Mr. Rodes brings more than 25 years of experience in managed care.
