Innovacare Health has been very instrumental in the betterment and the redevelopment of Puerto Rico following the hurricane that happened there recently. Many people had to get healthcare but were unable to do so due to the situation of the clinics and hospital in the territory, many of which were utterly damaged during the hurricane and have still not recovered.
Penelope Kokkinides, who heads Innovacare Health together with Rick Shinto, was one of the eight women who were invited by President Donald Trump for a meeting to discuss how to improve the lives of people in Puerto Rico. She came up with a plan on how to develop the country and give the people there access to good medical care regardless of their personal situation.
Penelope said that if we do not address the situation in Puerto Rico right now, it will only get worse. People will not be able to get access to the care that they need and will end up getting sicker and perhaps even die. There must be a way to address the situation, she said. She said that in her opinion, making sure that there is enough funding is the first step towards improving the situation in Puerto Rico.
However, Penelope Kokkinides is more than just someone who sits at meetings and talks about what other people should do. She decided to make sure that the residents of Puerto Rico do in fact have access to the right amount of medical care. To that end, she set up more than thirty mobile clinics in Puerto Rico. These mobile clinics are situated all around the territory and have helped more than twenty five thousand people who need access to medical care.
These clinics help people out in all kinds of ways. They help people who need medications and are unable to get them in other places in Puerto Rico. To make sure that the people are able to get access to the medical care that they need, the clinics all have pharmacies right on the site so that patients can go with their prescriptions right away and have them filled. This way, they do not have to worry about other pharmacies not having their medications in stock. In addition, there are professionals who will help you out with your diet and exercise plans so that you stay healthy.
