MultiPlan, Inc. is pleased to announce the top drawings selected in its 2013 Holiday Card program. Through this program, MultiPlan invites pediatric patients at hospitals participating in MultiPlan’s PPO networks to enter their drawings for a public vote on the MultiPlan website. The five entries that receive the most votes are featured on holiday greeting cards, produced courtesy of MultiPlan. All hospitals that submit drawings receive boxed sets of the cards for use in fundraising to support pediatric activities.
Congratulations to the following hospitals that submitted drawings on behalf of their pediatric patients:
- Englewood Hospital, in Englewood, New Jersey
- Metro Health Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio
- Children's Hospital of Greenville Health System in Greenville, South Carolina

The 26 entries submitted this year received almost 4,000 votes in the online voting. The top five drawings are featured on MultiPlan’s website at: http://www.multiplan.com/providers/holidaycardprogram.cfm. “We’re glad that through this program we’re able to help spread a little cheer during a child’s visit to the hospital,” said Dr. Anthony Sposato, Chief Medical Officer for MultiPlan. Sposato continued, “The proceeds from the sale of the cards help support the hospital’s pediatric programs, so they continue to work beyond the holiday season.”
