Duluth Hospital to End Sales of Sugar-Sweetened Beverages | Healthy Duluth Area Coalition [cached]
"What we're learning from data that's out there is that sugar-sweetened beverages are a significant contributor to obesity," said Mark Branovan, director of hospitality at St. Luke's.
St. Luke's administrators decided on Sept. 17 to stop selling the products, Branovan said, but the ban hasn't been fully implemented.
"We're shooting for Nov. 1," Branovan said. "It's a short transition period. We have to run the product out. … We have to bring new selections in and equipment in. We also have some patient menus that have Coca Cola and Sprite. We have to reprint some of our menus."
The ban applies to every clinic across the St. Luke's system as well as its main campus in Duluth, Branovan said.
But the St. Luke's ban doesn't prevent patients' families or employees from bringing in their own sugar-sweetened beverages, Branovan said.
Familiar products still will be available at St. Luke's, Branovan said. That includes Diet Coke, already the hospital's best-seller by such a wide margin that it exceeds the sales of the No. 2, 3 and 4 choices combined.
All-natural, no-sugar-added juices, Diet Snapple and flavored seltzer waters are being added to the mix, he said.
Nor is St. Luke's removing all sugar from its offerings. You'll still be able to buy cookies, for example.
"We could take away everything that is not healthy," Branovan said. "We're not that radical."

"Everything on that fountainhead is all zero calorie or sugar-sweetened beverage free," said Mark Branovan, the hospital's director of hospitality services, as he pointed to the cafeteria's options.
Branovan acknowledged that the hospital could go even further.
"We can remove the cinnamon rolls and the cookies, and all the other sugary treats," he said.
