As InnovaCare Health’s chief administrative officer, overseas all of the company’s healthcare services across North America. Her latest major project has been helping the hurricane victims of Puerto Rico. Her healthcare company has done a good job of illustrating what their company stands for by how they have created medical clinics staffed with expert professionals to assist residents with their medical needs.
Puerto Ricans living on the island lived in devastation for months. They experienced water covering their roadways, homelessness, a lack of food and medicine and blackouts. Now blackouts last for a short period of time. Things seem to be coming around but still the island faces issues with its lack of medical care. InnovaCare Health has pledged to give the island’s residents medical relief both for their bodies and minds. The company has created makeshift medical clinics throughout retail shopping centers. The company has created medical mobile vehicles to go out to the forgotten about rural parts of the island. Wellness programs, education programs and exercises classes are offered from the company. Physicals and treatments and medicines for medical diagnoses are offered from the company’s host of medical professionals. Mental health professionals are also there helping people face the grim reality of what has occurred to their beloved homes. The healthcare company is on a mission to help the Puerto Rico inhabitants long term. They want to see the people get on their feet and move out of impoverished lifestyles. The company works to help people find stable housing.
Though Penelope Kokkinides is working very hard to serve the hurting residents of Puerto Rico when funding is decreased for this U.S. territory, her job even becomes even more challenging to make sure these American citizens get the aid they have rights to. Puerto Rico receives less funding than other states of the United States. Every year the amount of funding for the island continues to drop while the U.S. states’ funding continues to remain about the same. Penelope sat down with President Trump to highlight the great efforts being done in Puerto Rico. But she also wanted to place emphasis on the fact that there is so much work to be done. That work will be an impossible feat with the way funding is going for the island. After the meeting InnovaCare Health reported progress in getting more attention on the need for raising funding for Puerto Rico.
