One of MultiPlan's most popular initiatives, the Holiday Card Program invites pediatric patients at hospitals participating in MultiPlan's PHCS, MultiPlan, or HealthEOS networks to enter their drawings for a public vote on the MultiPlan website. The five drawings that receive the most votes are featured on holiday greeting cards, produced courtesy of MultiPlan. The hospitals that submitted winning drawings receive a supply of cards for use in fundraising, at holiday events and to sell in their gift shops.
Over 4,100 votes were received this year. The top five drawings are featured on MultiPlan's website at: http://www.multiplan.com/providers/holidaycardprogram.cfm.
"This program is extremely rewarding," says Paul Goldstein, Chief Medical Officer for MultiPlan. "It offers hospitalized children around the country an outlet to express their creativity, while continuing MultiPlan's longstanding support of the community relations objectives of our participating hospitals."
In addition to the Holiday Card Program, MultiPlan provides participating hospitals with Jeep PowerWheels™ toy cars through its Toy Car Program, and awards annual grants to qualifying hospitals through its Rural Health Outreach Grant Program.
