Puerto Rico is now suffering more than ever. The country has not recovered from the effects of Hurricane Maria that took place last year in September. While the island suffered many problems before Hurricane Maria, those problems were intensified by that mega storm. One of the biggest issues that harms Puerto Rico is its healthcare system. The hurricane devastated the much of the medical infrastructure on the island and the people there are paying the price.
Rick Shinto knows the health-related problems that resulted from the hurricane. He is the CEO of Innovacare which is a leading insurance and medical provider in Puerto Rico. Shinto’s company has been providing health insurance and healthcare solutions for Puerto Rican people long before Maria arrived. After the island endured Maria’s wrath he knew that the people would be trouble in terms of their health.
Thousands of people in Puerto Rico had medical conditions that needed constant care to maintain their health and well-being. After the storm struck, many of these people could not get the care they needed to stay well. Unfortunately, many had passed away in the aftermath of the storm because they could not receive adequate medical care. This is one of the many problems that Rick Shinto and Innovcare are working hard to resolve.
Penelope Kokkinides is the CAO of Innovacare. She has assisted Rick Shinto in his efforts to improve healthcare in Puerto Rico. This highly intelligent health insurance executive has worked for many years in this industry. She met with Trump earlier in 2018 and told him that he needs to reverse the cuts that have been to Medicare Advantage which is a primary Puerto Rican healthcare insurer. The President has strongly considered her advice.
Innovacare Health is tackling Puerto Rico’s healthcare crisis from different angles. They have established temporary medical facilities, provided humanitarian aid and leads an aggressive fundraising campaign. All of these efforts and many more are being made by Innovcare to ensure that the people are getting medicine, medical treatment and basic medical care. Rick Shinto knows that there is a lot at stake. He wants to ensure that the people of Puerto Rico are getting the medical assistance they need to thrive and to live fruitful lives.
