Memorial Hospital became completely tobacco free for the entire hospital campus, effective September 26, 2011.
As a healthcare provider, we are committed to the principles of health and healing. Tobacco related illnesses are a major cause of preventable disease and death. Because of this our hospital is implementing a tobacco-free environment, both indoors and outdoors. According to the American Cancer Society, smoking is responsible for nearly one in five deaths in the United States. Because cigarette smoking and tobacco use are acquired behaviors, smoking is the most preventable cause of premature death in our society.
