With great regret, I have to inform you that I can no longer endorse Organic Themes.
November 26, 2012, I purchased the Developer Pack, which gave me life time access to all existing and any new themes by Organic Themes. Even last year, October 19, 2015, I was informed by e-mail that they "set your account to expire in 2099."
Unfortunately, things have changed since. November 7, I was informed that "If you would like to access the latest files you will need to renew your subscription by re-purchasing the theme or developer pack".
Other WordPress companies have changed their business model too, by switching to recurring plans to ensure sustainability of their company. However, unlike Organic Themes, these companies decided to grandfather in their existing customers. Hence, I can no longer recommend doing business with Organic Themes.
Vital by Organic Themes is a business theme developed for medical services and health care. Vital comes with a custom post type for team members and support for WooCommerce.
The theme offers two menu locations:

Organic Themes ships its themes as lightweight as possible. Because of that, Vital installs with just the default WordPress widgets.

With Organic Themes, you can choose from three pricing plans .
The price stated below of $69 is regarding a single theme license of Organic Themes Vital.
Another option is the Developer Pack at $249, which includes all current themes as well as any new theme released during your membership.
The Single Theme and Developer Pack both include the layered Photoshop (PSD) files, as well one year of theme updates and support.
After the first year, you can opt for a subscription plan at the rate of the purchased product. Such a plan entitles you to another year of updates and support.
Another option with Organic Themes is Instant Setup. The Instant Setup package includes the theme, auto WordPress installation, auto theme activation, and fully managed WordPress hosting for only $29 a month.
Please note that $29 is a very common fee for managed hosting alone, so practically you get the theme for free.
