HealthPRO Celebrates its 25th Anniversary with National Art Contest Honouring Healthcare Heroes

The Winning Artist Will Have the Opportunity to Direct a $25,000 Monetary Donation to the Healthcare Facility of Their Choice

MISSISSAUGA, ON, April 6, 2021 /CNW/ - This year, HealthPRO is celebrating its 25-year anniversary as Canada's group contracting provider for healthcare.

HealthPRO Celebrates its 25th Anniversary with the #FacesofCanadianHealthcare Art Contest Honouring Healthcare Heroes

"We're incredibly proud of the work our team has delivered over the last 25 years, and we look forward to taking on the next set of challenges the sector presents to us," said Renato Discenza, President and CEO, HealthPRO. "As we reflect on this tremendous milestone, know that we remain committed to helping our members by continuing to invest in our two main strengths: Knowledge and Trust."

Since 1996, HealthPRO has strategically leveraged the buying power and market influence of its members – which now number more than 1,300 healthcare facilities – to reduce the cost of high-quality products and services while helping maintain assurance of supply. As of 2021, the company has returned more than $740 million to the Canadian healthcare system in the form of patronage dividends.

"In thinking of an appropriate way to commemorate our anniversary, we felt there was no better, or timely approach than honouring the work of Canada's healthcare heroes," said Discenza. "That's why we're launching our #FacesofCanadianHealthcare art contest; we want to celebrate the tireless efforts of Canada's dedicated healthcare professionals who make an incredible difference in the lives of patients and their families." 

As part of the contest, artists from across Canada, professional or amateur, are invited to commemorate the vital work of Canada's healthcare professionals: nurses, doctors, pharmacists, administrators, custodians, procurement professionals and beyond. Eligible entry mediums include photography, painting, drawing, and digital art.

The winning artist will have the opportunity to direct a $25,000 monetary donation to a publicly funded Canadian healthcare organization of their choice, to help make a different in their local community. Additionally, the top three finalists will each personally receive a cash prize.

Additional information, including the contest's rules, regulations, and submission deadlines, can be found at www.facesofcanadianhealthcare.com.
