BELLEVUE, Wash., March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Coinstar, Inc. (Nasdaq: CSTR) today announced it will invest in SoloHealth, a consumer-driven healthcare technology company that develops and deploys health screening and information kiosks, including its award-winning EyeSite® product and the next-generation SoloHealth Station™.  Investment details were not disclosed.
