Tobacco & Smoke Free Campus

The hospital campus is tobacco and smoke free. This means that smoking and the use of all tobacco products are prohibited inside all buildings and anywhere on the grounds throughout the campus. Smoking is one of the top four causes of death. By maintaining a tobacco and smoke-free environment, we are discouraging the use of tobacco products, eliminating secondhand smoke in our environment.

As a patient, you can receive nicotine replacement therapy with a prescription from your physician. Please be sure to speak to your nurse or doctor for more information.
