The Molina Healthcare story is about one man’s belief that when it comes to health care everyone should be treated
It was in 1980 when as an emergency room physician, C. David Molina, MD, noticed that low-income, uninsured or
non-English speaking patients were coming to the emergency room in need of general health care services.
Without family doctors, they were not always getting the right care and information. These underserved families
deserved better and Dr. Molina set out to do something about it.
He opened a clinic in Long Beach, California to provide low-income individuals and families with a place to go to
get personalized health care from Molina doctors. Two more clinics opened that same year and today our health plans
and clinics serve patients across the country.
