Nature’s Path co-founders Ratana and Arran Stephens have donated $3M towards a new, purpose-built Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) Withdrawal Management Centre.
“Arran and Ratana Stephens have worked hard to build their lives and businesses on doing what they know to be the right thing to do, and this tremendously selfless gift is a continuation of that legacy,” says Angela Chapman, President & CEO of VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation. “They are true visionaries, leading the way in giving to support people recovering from substance use, and de-stigmatizing this critical aspect of health care. Their generosity strengthens our community.”
The Withdrawal Management Centre is scheduled for completion in 2025.
