PatientPay, the leading patient payments partner for specialty care, recently made a donation to The Nature Conservancy (TNC) for restoration of longleaf pine forests in the North Carolina Sandhills in honor of Earth Day.

The Durham-based company made this commitment to underscore its efforts to eliminating paper from patient healthcare billing, a change that benefits healthcare providers, healthcare consumers and the environment. Its contribution was inspired out of Earth Day’s campaign to help reduce the 15 billion trees we loose each year.

“The mission of The Nature Conservancy is perfectly aligned with our desire to help our environment stay strong,” said Tom Furr, PatientPay’s CEO. “Trees play an important role in not just the production of clean water, clean air, regulating climate but more importantly provides a shelter and a natural playground for parents and their children.”

“We appreciate this partnership, it will boost our efforts to restore North Carolina’s iconic tree,” said Mike Norris, who leads TNC’s efforts to restore longleaf in the Sandhills.

The Nature Conservancy has planted more than 1,000,000 longleaf seedlings in the Sandhills.
