New York, NY (PRWEB) September 14, 2016
MultiPlan, Inc., announced on Monday that voting is now open for its annual Holiday Card Program. Voting is open to the public from September 12 through 23 on the MultiPlan website at: http://www.multiplan.com/providers/holiday/vote/. Winners will be announced the week of October 3.
Through the Holiday Card Program, now in its 21st year, MultiPlan collects drawings from pediatric patients at hospitals participating in MultiPlan’s PPO networks and posts them on its website where the public can vote for their favorite drawings. (Participating networks include: PHCS, MultiPlan, Beech Street, HealthEOS, Texas True Choice, Arizona Medical Network (AMN), Rural Arizona Network (RAN), Health Management Network (HMN) and Integrated Health Plan (IHP).) The five entries that receive the most votes are made into holiday greeting cards, courtesy of MultiPlan. MultiPlan also provides the top five artists with posters of their artwork and their own holiday greeting cards.
“This is a program MultiPlan employees look forward to every year; it is fun to see the creativity of these young pediatric patients from across the country.” says Dr. Anthony Sposato, Chief Medical Officer for MultiPlan. “The goal of this program is to bring a little fun to the pediatric patients, while at the same time supporting the pediatric programs within our participating hospitals.”
For the first time in the program’s history, MultiPlan will be opening an online store, which will house all of the submitted entries. The online store will make the artwork available in the form of holiday cards, for purchase to the public, with proceeds going to charity. More details can be found on multiplan.com.
In addition to the Holiday Card Program, MultiPlan provides participating hospitals with ride-on toy cars through its Toy Car Program, and awards annual grants to qualifying hospitals through its Rural Health Outreach Grant Program.
