Roller derby, feline affection and John Muir Health

The latest evolution of the Be Heard campaign for John Muir Health arrives on your TV set and computer screen today. Look for us back in the examination room delving into the close relationships between JMH physicians and patients. A couple unique new characters demonstrate how John Muir docs listen, explain and really collaborate to find the solution that works best for each patient.

Just what the doc ordered: gold, silver, Best in Show

Jackpot for DC at the 2015 Healthcare Marketing IMPACT Awards, sponsored by Modern Healthcare and Ad Age, Thursday night in Chicago. It started with a silver in the video category for John Muir Health, a pair of golds for California Tobacco Control (CTCP) in the video and integrated campaign categories and was topped off with Best in Show for CTCP.

The John Muir silver was for the long-running “Be Heard” TV. The CTCP golds and the Best in Show were for the “Wake Up” e-cigarettes TV — those spots with the asterisks and vintage soundtracks — as well as for Wake Up interactive bus shelters, banners and billboards and the stillblowingsmoke.org site.

Big ups to two stellar clients. A smoke-free celebration shall ensue.

Be Heard: The Sequel

DC is back for round two of its groundbreaking campaign for respected healthcare brand, John Muir Health. Smashing the mold of standard medical marketing, the “Be Heard” campaign lightheartedly taps into the female target’s need to really be listened to — especially when it comes to their family’s health and well-being. The work begins with two new commercials from motion picture director, Clay Weiner (look for his new Valley Girl remake), but extends into print, outdoor, digital and mobile.

All due respect from new John Muir Health campaign

What do people want from their doctors? It starts with a little r-e-s-p-e-c-t. That’s what consumers told John Muir Health and, not coincidentally, what John Muir Health has delivered patients for decades. That insight is the basis for a comprehensive new campaign created by Duncan/Channon, JMH’s agency of record since July, 2010. The work is designed to reassure consumers, especially the moms who drive family healthcare decisions, that at John Muir Health patients are viewed as partners. Launching today, the effort ranges from TV, cinema and out-of-home to print, banners, mobile, Facebook and Pandora ads, and more. John Muir Health is one of California’s — and the nation’s — most highly-rated healthcare systems.
