NewYork-Presbyterian Trustee and Hearst President and CEO Steven R.

Dr. Steven J. Corwin, president and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian, and Dr. Laura L. Forese, executive vice president and chief operating officer of NewYork-Presbyterian, were joined by 450 guests. Stephanie Ruhle, anchor, MSNBC, and correspondent, NBC News, acted as the evening's emcee. The evening also featured a special performance by Tony and Grammy Award-winning performer, Leslie Odom, Jr., who originated the role of Aaron Burr in the acclaimed Broadway musical "Hamilton."
A leader in research and patient care since its predecessor institution was established as the Babies Hospital in 1887, NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital opened in 2003 and is internationally known for providing the highest quality, compassionate care for pediatric and neonatal patients. NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital ranks in more pediatric specialties than any other New York metro area hospital in the 2018-19 U.S. News & World Report's "Best Children's Hospitals" survey.
When it opened in 1887, the Sloane Hospital for Women was the first hospital in New York solely devoted to women's healthcare. Its innovative treatments linked obstetrics to gynecology, and it quickly developed a reputation for exceptional patient care and low mortality rates. Now part of NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center, the Sloane Hospital for Women brings together a vast spectrum of specialists, resources and programs uniquely designed to meet the health needs of women throughout their lives.
