New York, NY (PRWEB) August 16, 2012
MultiPlan, Inc., the nation’s oldest and largest independent PPO network, announced today it is now accepting submissions for its annual Holiday Card Program. One of MultiPlan’s most popular philanthropic initiatives, the Holiday Card Program collects holiday-inspired drawings from pediatric patients in hospitals participating in any of MultiPlan’s PPO networks and hosts a vote on its website. (MultiPlan’s networks include: PHCS, MultiPlan, Beech Street, HealthEOS, Texas True Choice, Arizona Medical Network (AMN), Rural Arizona Network (RAN), and Health Management Network (HMN). The five entries that receive the most votes are made into holiday greeting cards, courtesy of MultiPlan. The hospitals that submit drawings receive boxed sets of the cards for use in fundraising and to sell in their gift shops.
“This is one program that is fun for everyone, from the young patients who create the drawings, to their family and friends who get to vote for drawings online, and even for our staff who transform the drawings into greeting cards.” says Dr. Anthony Sposato, Chief Medical Officer for MultiPlan. “Our participating hospitals tell us that they look forward to this program every summer. They use the proceeds from the sale of the cards to support pediatric activities throughout the year.”
To be eligible for this contest, entries must be received by September 14, 2012. Voting will take place on MultiPlan’s web site at http://www.multiplan.com/providers/holidaycardprogram.cfm September 24 - October 5 and winners will be announced the week of October 15.
In addition to the Holiday Card Program, MultiPlan provides participating hospitals with Jeep PowerWheels™ toy cars through its Toy Car Program, and issues financial grants to qualifying hospitals through its Rural Health Outreach Grant Program.
