Nature’s Essence Health Products Inc. Donates $34,000 for New Ultrasound System at Richmond Hospital

Richmond, BC – For Richmond-based Nature’s Essence Health Products Incorporation, health is at the essence of both its business and its philanthropy. In alignment with this core value, the company has donated $34,000 to fund a new ultrasound system for Richmond Hospital.

“Giving back to the community is what we should do,” shares Raymond Lin, Owner and General Manager of Nature’s Essence Health Products Inc. “Our Richmond community has helped us grow over the years, and we are pleased to be there for them and their growing families. Meanwhile, Richmond as a community is also expanding, so we want to give back, support local health care services, and help build a healthier future.”

Nature’s Essence is a family-owned business that was established in Richmond in 1997 and is one of Canada’s top retailers of natural health products. A loyal supporter of Richmond Hospital Foundation since 2017, the family company completed a $100,000 donation for Richmond Hospital’s future acute care tower, the Yurkovich Family Pavilion in 2021.

“We are very fortunate to have Nature’s Essence’s generous support,” says Spencer Gall, Campaign Director of Richmond Hospital Foundation. “Nature’s Essence is a community enterprise that understands the importance of health and enhancing patient care to build a healthier community. Their donation will help strengthen the Richmond health care team’s ability to provide excellent care for our growing community.”

The new ultrasound system will improve the patient experience for those requiring intravenous (IV) procedures through advanced visualization, enhanced precision, and increased patient comfort. In particular, the new system will greatly assist medical staff with long-term IV access for cancer treatment, infections, and nutrition.
