Nine people make up the highest level of InnovaCare Health. The squad collectively brings upwards of 120 years of experience. Several members of this nine-man team have spent decades among the upper echelons of healthcare management. Dr. Richard Shinto, a three-decade veteran of practicing medicine and a 20-year vet of serving InnovaCare Health.

Dr. Shinto is quite active outside of his career as a physician. For example, he’s been on America’s Health Insurance Plans’ board of directors since 2017. The Board of Directors for America’s Physician Groups has hosted Dr. Richard Shinto, as well as the Financial Solvency Standards Board for the California Department of Managed Care.

He’s never written a book, but he’s found his way into the columns of newspapers and magazines countless times over his career. Dr. Shinto went to school at the University of California at Irvine, where he netted a bachelor’s of science. Shinto then secured a medical degree at New York’s very own State University of New York at Stony Brook.

As if Shinto felt that those two degrees weren’t powerful enough to get him somewhere, he enrolled at the University of Redlands, too, where he finished with an MBA.
