Penelope Kokkinides: Brilliant Leadership Qualities

What’s makes a good leader? In truth, that question can only be answered based on what’s being led. So, to more specific; what makes a good healthcare management company leader? The best answer: someone like Penelope Kokkinides, current Chief Administrative Officer of InnovaCare Health, Inc.

Penelope Kokkinides holds three master’s degrees and one bachelor’s degree in biological sciences and classical languages. Two of her master’s degrees came from Columbia University School of Public Health. After graduation, she joined the managed care industry. She’s worked in managed care for over 20 years, specializing in working with government programs.

As InnovaCare’s current Chief Administrative Officer, she’s able to manage many of InnovaCare’s health care processes. She’s an expert at developing more sustainable clinical programs and many of her techniques improve the company’s overall efficiency and organizational infrastructure. It’s one of the many reasons that InnovaCare wanted her as a team member.

Improving the life of their patients is InnovaCare’s top priority. Having people like Penelope Kokkinides leading the company is the best way to achieve their mission of redefining the entire healthcare management industry. Today’s healthcare environment isn’t patient-friendly, to say the least.

Companies like InnovaCare Health are trying to change that. InnovaCare, in particular, wants quality medical care to be available to everyone who needs it. That’s why they’re focused on building stronger patient-provider relationships. Stronger patient-provider relationships increase the chances of having healthier outcomes for their patients.

Penelope focuses more the organizational infrastructure; Dr. Richard Shinto, current President and CEO of the company, focuses more patient health. They both contribute to InnovaCare’s success, but Dr. Rick Shinto has more experience dealing with the ins and outs of the actual medical care.

Unlike Penelope Kokkinides, Dr. Shinto has a medical degree. He’s also a practicing internist and pulmonologist. He has medical tenure in Southern California, and he’s written dozens of healthcare and clinical medicine articles that were published by numerous medicine-related publications. Dr. Shinto’s 20-plus-year career specializes in clinical and operational healthcare. It’s all of those things that make Dr. Shinto’s contributions equal to, yet different from Penelope Kokkinides’s. One accomplishment Dr. Shinto earned on his own was making InnovaCare Puerto Rico’s number one provider of managed care, earning himself another CEO-related promotion.
