Western University of Health Sciences’ Gala Fundraiser Emphasizes Humanism and Caring
Date:11/12/2013

Anaheim, Calif. (PRWEB) November 12, 2013

Western University of Health Sciences’ annual gala fundraiser highlighted the power and importance of caring.

WesternU’s “A Tribute to Caring” gala on Nov. 9, 2013 brought more than 550 guests to the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim to raise money for student scholarships.

The theme of “Fire and Ice” was reflected in everything from the table centerpieces to the raffle prizes to the dessert, but the word that resonated through the evening was “caring.” Both award recipients reflected on the meaning of that word in their moving and inspiring speeches.

InnovaCare Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer Richard Shinto, MD, MBA, received WesternU’s Access to Caring Award, given to a person who has made a difference in advancing health care access and availability to underserved people. InnovaCare Health Solutions is a leading provider of managed health care services in North America.

Dr. Shinto has also been a pioneer in bringing the concept of medical provider networks to Puerto Rico. He has more than 20 years of clinical and operational health care experience in managed care, and is an active member of the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific (COMP) Advisory Board at WesternU.

“For me, access to caring isn’t about providing medical care, it’s about creating health care awareness and providing support for the patients, the families and the community,” Shinto said. “Access to caring is about the entire member experience. It isn’t about one episode, it’s about everything. It’s creating that culture for our employees, and the result is when we hear our patients have that commitment, confidence and trust in us. Because for us, it’s about having that member stay with us for life.”

Dr. Shinto recently visited WesternU’s Pomona, Calif., campus for the fifth annual Dr. Philip Pumerantz Distinguished Lectureship. Keynote speaker Louis W. Sulliv
