In this week’s edition of the Long Beach Business Podcast, the Business Journal sat down with John Molina of Molina, Wu, Network (MWN) to discuss the future of Community Hospital. The hospital, which provided much needed acute care services in East Long Beach before it shut down in July 2018, is to be reopened and operated by MWN via an interim agreement with the city. The Long Beach City Council agreed to help finance the seismic retrofit of the facility, a move that has drawn some criticism despite general consensus that the hospital will provide necessary services. Molina told us about the company’s plans for the hospital, a timeline for the reopening process and the public-private partnership between MWN and the City of Long Beach.
