Shopping at LifeBridge Health

Before you know it, it will be time to start on holiday shopping or to stock up on vitamins to keep you healthy during cold weather. Now LifeBridge Health is making it easier for employees, patients, visitors and friends to shop online.

Our new e-commerce site, The Shops at LBH, can be accessed by clicking here or through our main site. Items on the site range from housewarming gifts like a personalized serving tray to flowers to medical supplies like a cane base.

“More and more people are using the Internet to make purchases and get information, particularly as it relates to their health care,” says David Garner, director of Retail Health for LifeBridge Health. “This allows LifeBridge Health facilities to meet the needs of its many customers by making it easier for them to buy items they may need for their continued medical care, as well as send flowers and gifts to a family member or friend who may be hospitalized.

In addition, LifeBridge Health employees will be able to purchase uniforms at discounted prices.

Along with the thousands of health and wellness products for sale, visitors to www.TheShopsAtLBH.org can sign up for health e-newsletters, and participate in a loyalty program that rewards buyers who make frequent purchases on the site. Expectant mothers are also able to sign up for a baby registry.

The site is being managed in partnership with Paquin Healthcare Companies, a leading provider of retail related strategies for health care clients in the United States.

“This initiative represents a real commitment by LifeBridge Health to meet the needs of the community in new and innovative ways. We are enthusiastic about partnering with them on this project,” says Tony Paquin, CEO of Paquin Healthcare.
