Kroger plans to partner with more hospitals

Grocery chain Kroger has launched a healthcare initiative that allows hospitals to use its stores to expand care offerings to patients, according to the Cincinnati Business Courier. 

The goal of the initiative, called Kroger 360care, is to help patients access lower-cost healthcare. 

As an extension of 360care, Kroger recently partnered with Ascension St. Thomas Health in Nashville, Tenn., to expand healthcare access in Middle Tennessee. 

The grocer said similar partnerships are in the works.

"Collaborations and partnerships are key to transforming the way healthcare is delivered in America," Colleen Lindholz, president of Kroger Health, told the Courier. "Our vision at Kroger Health is to help people live healthier lives. This partnership is a great example of our vision in action."
