CEO Rick Shinto
At the top of this progressive health care company, you will find Doctor Rick Shinto. Shinto has more than twenty years of experience in the medical field including both clinical and managerial positions. He started out in Southern California working in internal medicine and pulmonology. Shinto then worked in several medical management companies in California including Medical Pathways Management, Med Partners Company, and Cal Optima Health Plan. He served as CEO of North American Medical Management of California (NAMM) before moving to Aveta Inc. in 2008. He was President of Aveta until 2012 when he joined InnovaCare Health. You probably won’t be surprised to learn that in addition to his Medical Doctorate degree (MD) Shinto also has a Masters in Business Administration degree (MBA).
Award Winning Leadership
After decades of working in the health care field, Dr. Shinto has won many awards for his service. He was awarded the Access to Caring award for his work to provide health care to the less fortunate and for being a proponent of compassionate medical care. He was recently praised for his work with InnovaCare Health to provide affordable health care in Puerto Rico. For that work, he was recognized as one of the Top 25 Minority Executives in the Healthcare Field in 2018 by Modern Healthcare. Dr. Shinto was gratified to receive this prestigious award for the second time. He was previously honored by Modern Healthcare in 2012. Also in 2012, he was awarded the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in the Service category. That award was for his dedication to providing quality care.
