InnovaCare Health welcomes three new executives including Penelope Kokkinides

The CEO of Puerto Rico’s largest government-sponsored managed health care plans provider, InnovaCare Health, Rico Shinto recently shared that his organization was hiring three new executives. He stated that the organization was on a mission to expand its customer base and better health care in the country. Therefore, the contributions of the three new executives would play a significant role in achieving this mission. He pointed out that his organization was happy to have such great persons at its disposal. Dr. Shinto went ahead to clarify that he will be working closely with all the three executives to drive the organization to even greater successes.

The InnovaCare success

Today, InnovaCare Health is the biggest provider of medical plans to the residents of Puerto Rico. This organization’s health plans cover over 200,000 Puerto Ricans. InnovaCare works closely with over 7,500 health care facilities in the region to provide top-notch health care services under the medical plans. The organization runs PMC Medicare Choice and MMM Healthcare medical plans both of which are Puerto Rico’s only NCQA- accredited medical plans.
