J. Walter Thompson New York and Northwell Health Film First Birth of 2016

Just 36 seconds after midnight on New Years Eve, J. Walter Thompson New York had film crews waiting at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in Queens to capture the hospital's first birth of 2016. Through its partnership with Northwell Health, the agency captured the first moments between the mother and her baby boy Austin Joseph. The concept behind this idea was inspired by the rebranding of the former North Shore-LIH Health System as Northwell Health. All of the footage was captured in real-time, packaged for TV and broadcast within hours of the birth.

"The birth of a new healthcare system dedicated to a new standard in care deserves more than just another hospital campaign. It's not just advertising; it's news," said Eric Weisberg, Executive Creative Director at J. Walter Thompson New York.

The Northwell Health campaign 'Look North' is the healthcare company's first brand campaign in five years and the largest marketing effort in their 25-year history. Weisberg commented: "Across all media channels, 'Look North' challenges people to discover the unique breakthroughs in care happening throughout Northwell Health, and it would not have been possible without the unprecedented collaboration, partnership and vision of the Northwell teams."
