Smoke Free Environment
St. Mary's is a smoke-free campus, which includes e-cigarettes. Smoking in any building owned by St. Mary's or on campus grounds is strictly prohibited. This includes all buildings and grounds and offices throughout the health system at all locations.
Consistent with our commitment to the prevention and treatment of disease, we feel a responsibility to provide clean air for patients and employees and to serve as a rolemodel for a healthier community. Research has shown that a smoke-free environment improves air quality which results in healthier patients and employees and reduces fire hazards.
We appreciate your cooperation in refraining from smoking and ask that you inform your visitors of this policy. All St. Mary's employees, volunteers, and members of the medical staff are permitted and authorized to politely enforce this policy.
St. Mary's Gift Shoppe and Apothecary offer nicotine gum, lozenges, and patches for purchase at cost to assist family/visitors while they are on campus.
