The Molina Healthcare Story. Molina Healthcare is a Long Beach success story. C. David Molina, MD, was an emergency room physician in 1980 when he 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. Dr. Molina felt these underserved families deserved better and he 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 Molina health plans and clinics serve patients across the country.
