Whole Foods co-founder sets sights on health care

John Mackey's Love.Life announced Wednesday that the company has released a series of virtual health optimization programs and plans to open a brick-and-mortar location in 2024.

Pharmacy and drug wholesaler, calling itself the “UnPBM,” aims to slash prescription prices for consumers and benefit plans.

By partnering with Boston-based nonprofit About Fresh and New York-based Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, eligible shoppers can now use a prepaid debit card to buy healthy foods.

The supermarket giant is a founding member of the Validation Institute's new FoodMed Certified Program.

The Texas grocer, which recently opened four clinics in Houston, said building a foundation of consumer trust is key to encouraging shoppers to become patients.

Program allows health care providers to “prescribe” prepaid debit cards to help consumers buy fresh produce.

Uber’s health-focused arm is expanding to fulfill food-as-medicine prescriptions and over-the-counter medications, a few months after adding prescription drug delivery.

The specialty grocer has a spate of new openings on the horizon. The first will happen Friday in Delray Beach, Florida.

Mackey and several former Whole Foods execs are building a restaurant brand around the notion that food is medicine. The plant-based restaurant is only one part of the brand, which will later include medical services and wellness programs.
