Our story is about being a family
The Molina Healthcare story is about one man’s belief that when it comes to health care everyone should be treated like family.
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 company serves people across the country through our various lines of business.
