Winner directs $25,000 donation to chosen Canadian healthcare facility.
HealthPRO, Canada's group contracting provider for healthcare, is pleased to announce Maggie Coffin Prowse from Grand Bay-Westfield, New Brunswick as the winner of its #FacesofCanadianHealthcare national art contest.
Launched in March to pay tribute to the healthcare workers that HealthPRO has been honoured to serve over the last 25 years, the contest received over 100 submissions from artists across nearly every Canadian province.
Earning the highest number of votes for her piece I See You, a reflection of nurses' comforting eyes, Ms. Coffin Prowse is taking home a $3,000 cash prize, and the opportunity to direct $25,000 to her chosen Canadian healthcare facility: Bobby's Hospice in Saint John, New Brunswick.
"This is a tremendous honour," said Maggie. "My aunt passed away from COVID and the last form of communication she received from a healthcare professional was through their eyes which is the focus of my piece. I'm very grateful for the opportunity to support Bobby's Hospice and my community with this incredible donation. Our healthcare system is driven by so many passionate and committed individuals whom I thank from the very bottom of my heart."
Brad Adams, Executive Director, Hospice Greater Saint John was thrilled to learn that they were selected as Maggie's charity of choice.
