Conifer Health Solutions Unites with Habitat for Humanity to Build and Revitalize Communities

Conifer Employees Volunteer to Build Six New Homes across the Country

FRISCO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Conifer Health Solutions, a leader in business process management solutions for healthcare providers, announced it will fund and participate in the construction of six Habitat for Humanity homes in 2011. The new alliance will increase the development of healthy, sustainable and affordable housing and help revitalize communities where employees of Conifer and the hospitals they serve live and work.

“The transformative nature of a Habitat build touches everyone involved and inspires broad community revitalization. We are pleased to have Conifer Health Solutions partner with Habitat and extend this volunteer engagement opportunity to its employees,” said Tim O’Connell, senior director, corporate partnerships and programs, Habitat for Humanity International.

Conifer’s commitment to Habitat for Humanity serves as the centerpiece of its new “Rooted in Community” Corporate Social Responsibility program. The CSR program is designed to create opportunities for Conifer employees to give back to their communities and make a difference for people in need. Together, the partners will build and revitalize homes in Boca Raton, Fla.; Burbank, Calif.; Butte and Billings, Mont.; Detroit, Mich.; and Dallas, Texas.

“Our partnership with Habitat for Humanity will provide Conifer with another way to make a difference in our communities, and it will afford our employees the opportunity to volunteer for a very worthwhile cause as well,” said Stephen Mooney, president of Revenue Cycle Solutions for Conifer Health Solutions. “We look forward to working with Habitat for Humanity to construct that strong foundation and improve the communities where we live and work.”

Mooney said construction projects will begin this month in California and Florida and will continue at the other locations throughout the remainder of the year.
