Shinto’s contributions

Rick Shinto, who earned his medical degree from the University of New York, had always displayed a passion for improving healthcare services, even before he founded InnovaCare Health. In his early days working in Southern California as a pulmonologist, Dr. Shinto wrote numerous medical articles detailing in depth his recommendations on some acrimonious health care issues. Under his watch, Innovacare has gained popularity among the majority of Puerto Ricans. His company has made health care more affordable for many residents of the Island, and as a result, most people have ditched insurance companies in favor of InnovaCare’s health care plans. Rick Shinto has not achieved this fete all by himself. Lucky for him, he has had the privilege to work with Penelope Kokkinides, a respected and seasoned healthcare executive.
