"Amazing Things" Campaign Focuses on Stories of Survival Told in Native Languages

NEW YORK, Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- NewYork-Presbyterian unveiled new advertising during the opening of the Olympics

on February 9, underscoring the hospital's commitment to serving patients and their communities, with Spanish and Mandarin language patient-focused spots running on general media.

The Olympics :30 second and :60 second spots are part of NewYork-Presbyterian's "Amazing Things" campaign which the Seiden advertising agency has been evolving since 2013.

"The patients we serve don't come in one color or one language and our advertising shouldn't either. NewYork-Presbyterian is committed to diversity and inclusiveness in everything we do and I think this initiative reflects that," NewYork-Presbyterian Chief Marketing Officer Hernando Ruiz-Jimenez said.

Multiple spots will run over the course of the Olympics, including during the opening and closing ceremonies, in prime time and other daytime spots on WNBC in the New York Tri-State area. A digital campaign went live on on February 9 as well.

Stephen Feinberg, Chief Creative Officer of Seiden, noted, "Our goal with the campaign has always been to let patients tell their story in the most honest, unvarnished way possible. Letting them tell their stories in their native language is yet another step forward."

The work emphasizes the fact that NewYork-Presbyterian, in collaboration with its affiliated academic medical schools, Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons and Weill Cornell Medicine, is at the forefront of many groundbreaking medical discoveries in research and clinical care and in connecting with the communities the organization serves.
