Another health care center has cut out sugary drink from their campus as part of the Commons Health Hospital challenge.
Beginning in 2015, sugar-sweetened beverages, such as soft drinks, energy and sports drinks, sweetened coffees and teas and fruit drinks will no longer be sold or distributed at Essentia Health-Fosston, a critical-access hospital in Foston, Minnesota.
“At Essentia Health, our mission is to make a healthy difference in people’s lives,” says Kevin Gish, administrator and regional vice president for Essentia Health-Fosston in a press release. “As a leadership team, we felt that selling and profiting from the sales of sugar-sweetened beverages was not congruent with that mission.”
