John Okorocha surmounted various challenges, to start Isocare Group Inc. USA in 1996, with the aim of building a global, multifaceted business enterprise. Currently, he serves as the President/Chief Executive Officer of Isocare, Inc. Hawthorne, California, USA, specializing in patients with traumatic injuries and auto-immune disorders; President of Isocare SNF, Inc. USA, a 94-bed nursing home; dba Isocare Convalescent Hospital, Glendale, California, USA; Chairman, Isocare West Africa Ltd., Nigeria, a beverage, beauty and plastics company and Chairman 9Ja Ltd., Lagos, the parent company of 9ja-TV, a pidgin English television station.
Mr. Okorocha’s distinction lies, among other things, in his astute business skills, spirited explorations of new frontiers, forging transnational links between the opportunities in America and Nigeria, and establishing veritable platforms for their fruitful realization. In this alone, he sets the bar for other aspiring Nigerian entrepreneurs. As evident, his ventures derive from a hardy spirit of enterprise and speak volumes in ways that encourage progressive economic and social transformations. There is, from his bare-hand accomplishments, especially investing extensively in Nigeria, a palpable sense of confidence in the nation’s prospects. This, in substance and form, will facilitate the ongoing qualitative changes in the Nigerian economy and help secure the dividends of a democratic society, much better. It is little wonder then, that he is seen, by peers and the wider community, as an inspirational icon and trailblazer.
From the preceding, Mr. Okorocha has proven that self-actualization is realistic, attainable and not a whimsical endeavor. As an advocate of compassionate healthcare management, a shining example of a self-made achiever, who raises the international profile of Nigeria, positively, he is being recognized for his role in initiating and fostering business networks across sectors and borders, abiding sense of purpose and low-key operative style. His extensive business portfolio, makes clear how important vision and tenacity can be in the attainment of goals. Developing and sustaining secure respectful relationships with other businesses and government agencies in health care services management, requires stringent professional and ethical standards, and exceptional devotion to the service of humanity. He has been honored with a Life & Times Award for his distinguished track record of entrepreneurial success at local, national and international levels.
