With Rick Shinto And Penelope Kokkinides Among The Leadership Team, InnovaCare Health Has Continued To Blaze A Trail Of Innovation In Healthcare

Since 2012, InnovaCare Health has developed an impressive business model within the sphere of managed healthcare plans. Continuously striving to innovate and to change the way that healthcare payments are processed has been one of the defining features of the work that the company engaged in under the leadership of President and CEO Dr. Rick Shinto and Chief Operating Officer Penelope Kokkinides. Rick Shinto has been heavily involved in the healthcare industry for over twenty years now. He began his involvement in healthcare on the clinical side of the field before moving on to the operational and managerial side of things. His previous appointment before coming to InnovaCare Health was with Aveta. While at Aveta, Rick Shinto was that company’s Chief Executive Officer. Rick Shinto was also recently named to the list of the Top Twenty-Five Minority Executives in the Healthcare Industry for 2018. Officials at InnovaCare health proudly announced the fact that Shinto had made this list in a press release from February of 2018. The list is a way of honoring the best executives in healthcare that are of minority status.

InnovaCare has become a well-respected company within the healthcare sphere due to continued work toward being able to provide healthcare patients with the best value for their money. Joining the HHS Payment Initiative is one of the ways that the company is working toward doing this. This is a major initiative to reform the way that payments in healthcare are processed and it puts a significant emphasis on the concept of quality being more important quantity. Innovacare Health has also been fighting to bring improved healthcare to Puerto Rico. In this regard, Penelope Kokkinides recently met with President Donald Trump on this subject.

Similar to Dr.Rick Shinto, Penelope Kokkinides came to the InnovaCare team with an impressive resume of experience. Her past experience includes serving on the executive management team at Centerlight Health. Penelope Kokkinides has been a critical cog in the administrative apparatus at InnovaCare Health since her arrival. She gets a great deal of enjoyment out of the fact that every day at InnovaCare Health is a new challenge. This is a fact that she strongly feels helps to keep her sharp as well as motivated. She is a constant student of her field and after all of these years and all of the experience that she has accumulated, she continues to read articles and books on a regular basis in an effort to continue to learn more.

Stream Energy : A Textbook example of how Corporate Charity is done

It wasn’t too long ago that the Texas coast was pummeled with heavy rains and destructive winds cause by one of the largest storms in recorded history, Hurricane Harvey. While many individuals and business owners were forced to evacuate and see their livelihoods be destroyed from a distance, one company, in particular, was getting ready to bring aid to anyone that needed it. Stream Energy is a service provider of fixed rate energy plans, through their charitable foundation “Stream Cares”, the company was able to allocate funds and volunteers to aid in the recovery efforts as well as to provide assistance to other organizations such as the Red Cross of America and Habitat for Humanity.

Stream Energy’s company culture has always focused on their philanthropic efforts and because of this, Stream Energy is one of the most respected and revered companies within their community. The company received extra attention during this hurricane in particular as they were seen by the media and other companies as the prime textbook example of how a company can leverage charity and philanthropy to boost their brand name value while still helping out the community. The Stream Cares Foundation is a relatively new concept for a large corporation, in fact, Stream Energy has made this foundation a separate branch solely focused on finding projects to be involved with. Creating this foundation has also come with its benefits, these include ensuring customer loyalty and essentially creating a buffer zone when things don’t go exactly the way the company wants it to go.

Much of their success with their philanthropy projects is due largely in part because of their associates and the Stream Energy business model. Through direct selling, Stream associates are able to create bonds and with the support of the company are also put in a better position to choose a charitable organization to volunteer their time to. One passion projects popular with Dallas-based Stream associates comes in the form of helping the homeless children of the city. These associates create events for the children, collect food, clothing and any other essentials needed for their lives.

Stream Energy And The Development Of The Stream Cares Foundation

Stream Energy, the 14 year old Dallas, Texas based company known for its innovative recruitment of wireless, electricity, gas, home and protective services customers through direct selling, has created a philanthropic arm called Stream Cares. Since its founding in 2004, the company has consistently provided support for people and communities in need. This was particularly true in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. The company was deeply involved in a wide variety of efforts designed to help rebuild the community and provide food, clothing and shelter for the families displaced by the storm.

The creation of the Stream Cares Foundation will help the company to better be able to help individuals and communities in need. Currently, Stream Energy has long-term relationships with the Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, the Red Cross and several other social service organizations. The company has also been making a significant impact in helping the homeless population in Dallas, Texas and surrounding areas through their work with Hope Supply Company. For four years, Stream has been helping Hope Supply Company provide the homeless with school supplies, clothing, diapers and more.

Stream Energy has also worked in concert with Hope Supply Company at their Splash for Hope events to provide free admittance for over 1,000 homeless children to local water parks so they can have some fun. In addition to the work they do in communities throughout Texas, Steam Energy also provides support financially and otherwise to grassroots organizations and charities all across the country. A recent write-up on Patch explains that the company sees its role as more than a provider of affordably priced energy. They are also committed to making life better for people in the communities they serve by giving back.

When many people hear the name Stream Energy, innovative methods of direct-sales of high quality energy products is what comes to mind. With the creation of Stream Cares, more people will also begin to see the company as the caring entity it has long been. A company which places a high value on ensuring all its neighbors can enjoy a good quality of life.

Adam Milstein Expresses His Views On JNS With Intelligence And Clarity

Adam Milstein is an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, a real estate investor, serves Hager Pacific Properties as a managing investor and is an author on JNS. His most recent article focused on anti-Semitism. He spoke of the three sources as being the radical left, the radical right and the radical Muslim movements. The current tactics and ideas are causing a wave of racism, bigotry and hate. Adam Milstein spoke of the alliance between the radical leftists and the radical Muslims. He wrote about this group trampling human rights and minorities, executing gays, abhorring feminism and stoning women. He believes these allies have put aside their differences in favor of their common hatred for pluralistic nationalism, the Western influence, anti Semitism and freedom of speech.

The JNS article written by Adam Milstein discussed the warped view of the radical left. He stated Israel is targeted by Muslims and blames the Jews for every problem suffered in the Middle East. Linda Sarsour is an organizer for the Women’s March. She is a feminist leader despite the fact she admires the Sharia law. She praises the way Saudi Arabia treats women and is one of the left’s role models. The Tufts University’s leftist students declared Israel was a white supremacist state. The anti Semitism among the college leftists was exposed. The same rhetoric was used as by the Muslim groups. Adam Milstein revealed one of the writers of the guide declared this was not anti-Semitism because the author was Jewish.

The Chicago Dyke March expelled three individuals because their pride flags had a Star of David. The SlutWalk Chicago derided and condemned Zionists attempting to participate. Adam Milstein exposed all of this on JNS. Walkers have been encouraged to attend speeches by Palestinian terrorists who have killed Jewish students. The Jewish population of Iran saw the anti-Semitism and hatred of the West of the radical leftists during the Iranian revolution. They emigrated to Israel and the United States. Adam Milstein has written powerful articles on JDS. He has spoken of Islamic nationalists, Adolf Hitler, the Nazi influence and anti-Semitism. He believes these views are a threat to not only the Jews in America but all over the world.
