As part of its ongoing commitment to philanthropic activities in the communities it serves, Accretive Health employees founded an organization dedicated to charitable giving, with Accretive Health, Inc., providing an initial financial endowment. Accretive Helping Hands was launched in December 2012 as an exciting new way for Accretive Health's 1,750 U.S. employees to extend their volunteerism. Accretive Helping Hands helps patients and their families navigate the difficulties encountered after treatment by partnering with community healthcare and social work providers.
Most recently, in conjunction with Accretive Helping Hands, Accretive Health employees teamed up with St. Thomas Health and Baptist Volunteer Services in Nashville, Tenn., to build houses for Habitat for Humanity.

"At Accretive Health, we are taking a very grass roots approach to our volunteer work," said Chris Hartemayer, a senior manager at Accretive Health. "We have the people in place across the country and we are looking forward to assisting patients in the communities where they live and work."
