Founder of the innovative Hills Health Ranch
Pat Corbett is a pioneer in health and wellness tourism in Canada. Since he opened The Hills Health Ranch in June 1985 in 108 Mile Ranch, British Columbia, it has grown from humble beginnings into a full service, four-season destination. Under Pat’s guidance, the Hills Health Ranch has one of the largest workforces of wellness professionals at any Canadian spa, with everything from registered dieticians and kinesiologists to herbologists and microbiologists on staff.
Together with his wife Juanita, Pat has created an original business model for complete wellness tourism that sees the traditional health spa complemented by the provision of unhindered access to the backcountry, outdoor activities, fitness programs, meals and medical specialists. Their ranch now draws guests from all over the world and has four times won an international 'specialty spa of the year' award.
