Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic rolled out an extension of its "You Know Where to Go" campaign Sept. 8, utilizing the voice of Academy Award-winning actress Viola Davis.

The campaign's new video ad, titled "The Power of Answers," employs a more confident and reassuring tone than the campaign's previous messaging. The ad focuses on an artistic rendering of the human brain that features imaging tractography software, MRI data and 3D modeling as Ms. Davis' voiceover explains how using science to find answers quells worry amid uncertainty.

"While Mayo Clinic can't promise each patient a cure, we can uncover answers that spark hope and optimism for those who have seen so little," Sherri Gilligan, Mayo Clinic's chief marketing officer, said in a news release. "This campaign holds an incredibly powerful brand message that speaks to who we are at our core: an organization on the relentless pursuit of answers for our patients."

The new video ad will air across digital, social and outdoor channels from Sept. 8 to December.
