A bright spot in hospitals’ hallways
WILLOUGHBY, Ohio — The new Max-Wellness at the Lake Health’s West Medical Center is a smaller-format store specifically designed for hospitals. The approximately 600-sq.-ft. location adjacent to the hospital gift shop features wellness products specifically tailored to the needs of patients. In fact, Max-Wellness collaborates with the healthcare professionals at the hospital around that product selection.
The store is staffed by a Max-Wellness advocate, who provides assistance in selecting products needed for continuing care. That includes a full line of heart-health items — the hospital performs open-heart surgeries on site — as well as wound care, weight loss and mobility products.
“The hospital version of Max-Wellness is truly a first of its kind because it’s designed specifically for patients being discharged from the hospital,” stated Michael Feuer, Max-Wellness CEO. “The [store] will be a learning model for future Max-Wellness stores expected to open in hospitals and senior living centers.”
