CCHS is Smoke & Tobacco Free

As a healthcare organization, we are responsible not only for the treatment of disease but for taking steps to promote the prevention of illnesses and injuries as well.  Furthermore, as a healthcare leader, it is CCHS’s mission to set the standard and demonstrate healthy lifestyles for the communities in which CCHS serves. Tobacco use is widely recognized as a major preventable cause of many diseases in smokers and nonsmokers alike.  As CCHS is committed to providing a safe, healthy, comfortable and productive environment for all who visit or work in and around our facilities, CCHS has been designated as a tobacco-free institution. The success of the policy will depend upon the thoughtfulness, consideration and cooperation of all tobacco users and non-users alike.

Smoking or otherwise using tobacco or tobacco-like products (including, but not limited to cigarettes, electronic cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, snuff, pipes, snus, etc.) on our property is prohibited.  This includes any emerging tobacco product or simulated smoking device.

This includes all buildings, areas maintained, grounds, parking lots, ramps, sidewalks, etc. owned or leased or maintained by CCHS.

There are no designated smoking areas within any CCHS facility or on any grounds.
