From respiratory therapist to healthcare leadership

Alvaro Molina's journey in healthcare began as a respiratory therapist in the late 1980s, driven by his father's battle with lung cancer. Eager to gain an understanding of the healthcare industry, Molina climbed the ladder, eventually assuming leadership roles.

He served as a director in several hospitals, including Baptist and Palmetto, before founding a successful company specializing in ventilator patient case management. Molina's experience and dedication led him to Kindred Healthcare, where he became the CEO of hospitals, overseeing operations in Coral Gables, Hollywood, and Jacksonville.

Having grown up in Miami-Dade County since 1979, Alvaro Molina has a deep-rooted connection to the community and a firsthand understanding of its challenges. His upbringing and personal experiences have instilled in him a passion for making a difference in the lives of individuals and families facing healthcare inequalities. Molina's transition to Florida Blue allows him to shift his focus from bedside care and hospital leadership to the broader goal of preventing illness and promoting healthier lifestyles within the community.

Empowering communities and fostering partnerships

As Market Leader for Miami-Dade, Alvaro Molina is poised to drive change and impact the lives of individuals and families in the region. He is determined to increase awareness and understanding of Florida Blue's offerings within the Hispanic community, where the brand has historically had limited visibility. Molina aims to bridge the gap and ensure that Florida Blue becomes a household name akin to accessible and affordable healthcare.

One of Molina's primary objectives is to make a meaningful impact on socioeconomically disadvantaged areas. He plans to collaborate with community organizations, homeless shelters, and non-profits to address the unique healthcare needs of underserved populations. By partnering with local institutions, Molina aims to provide resources, education, and access to healthcare services, particularly in areas with scarce healthy food options and quality healthcare.
