New York, NY (PRWEB) September 27, 2010
MultiPlan, Inc., the nation’s oldest and largest independent PPO network, today announced that voting is now open for its annual Holiday Card Program. Voting is open to the public on the MultiPlan website at: http://www.multiplan.com/providers/holidaycardprogram.cfm from September 27 through October 8, 2010. Winners will be announced the week of October 18.
Now in its 15th year, MultiPlan’s Holiday Card Program collects drawings from pediatric patients at hospitals participating in MultiPlan’s PHCS, MultiPlan, HealthEOS, Beech Street or Texas True Choice Networks and posts the images on the company’s website for a public vote to determine the five favorite drawings. The winning drawings are featured on MultiPlan’s corporate holiday card. Each hospital whose patients submitted drawings receive a supply of cards, courtesy of MultiPlan, for use in fundraising and to sell in their gift shops. In addition, MultiPlan sponsors parties for children at the hospitals from which the top drawings were selected.
“We get tremendous enjoyment from this program,” says Paul Goldstein, Chief Medical Officer for MultiPlan. “It gives pediatric patients a fun, creative outlet during their hospital stay, and continues MultiPlan’s longstanding tradition of supporting 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.
