NEW ORLEANS – Ochsner Health System has partnered with Rouses Markets, one of the largest independent grocers in the United States, to distribute its line of 17 high-quality vitamins and supplements to 25 stores in Southeast Louisiana.
The Ochsner Vitamins and Supplements product line includes multivitamins for men, women, children and seniors, Omega 3, vitamin D and vitamin C, among others.
“We’ve had a long standing relationship with Rouses through our Choose Healthy program. This seemed like a natural way to expand what that program stands for – focus on everyday health and well-being,” said David Gaines, CEO of System Retail and Marketing, Ochsner Health System. “Vitamins are an integral part of our daily health and wellness. As a healthcare provider, it’s important that we provide high quality products to the community. This partnership demonstrates our commitment to healthy lifestyles.”
"We're committed to providing our customers food and products that fit into a healthier lifestyle. Ochsner is one of our great Louisiana partners. If they put their name on it, you know it's quality," said Donald Rouse, President of Rouses Markets.
When creating its vitamins, Ochsner contracted with the best manufacturer in the industry in an NSF-certified (nsf.org) Good Manufacturing Practice laboratory to ensure all of our products and raw materials are tested for purity, efficacy and safety prior to formulation. Because Ochsner’s name is on the label, you can be certain that almost 70 years of unparalleled clinical expertise and quality outcomes stand behind what is in the bottle.
Products are also available at OchsnerVitamins.com, the Ochsner Medical Center pharmacy and gift shops, Ochsner Total Health Solutions and all Elmwood Fitness Center locations. The vitamins and supplements are priced competitively starting from $6.99.
