NewYork-Presbyterian Nominated for a Webby Award

The prestigious global competition selected a video about the first-of-its-kind “domino” heart valve transplant that saved two babies' lives as a finalist in the longform video category. Voting is open to the public through April 18.

NewYork-Presbyterian was nominated for a Webby Award for its video Saving Two Babies’ Lives With One Pioneering Approach to Heart Valve Transplantation. The Webby Awards are a leading international competition that honors excellence on the Internet. This year’s Webby Awards received nearly 13,000 entries from across the United States and more than 70 countries. The public can cast ballots for their favorite nominees through April 18.

The nominated video, produced by the editorial team in the Office of Marketing and Communications, tells the story of a first-of-its-kind “domino” transplant in two infants who were born with rare, life-threatening congenital heart defects. In the innovative procedure performed by a team of specialists at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, 8-month-old Mia Skaats received a new heart, and surgeons immediately transplanted the valves of her old heart to 2-month-old Brooklyn Civil. It was the first time a “domino” procedure was performed on infants, saving two lives and paving the way to save more.

The other nominees in the category include videos from Apple, Chevrolet, e.l.f. Cosmetics, and Volvo.

NewYork-Presbyterian’s editorial team was also an honoree in the category of public service and activism for the video Sharing Healing Through Weaving, which shows how patient Jose Picayo helps fellow cancer patients find solace through hand weaving classes.
