Because we are dedicated to the health of our community, Regional West Health Services is an entirely smoke-free campus. As a regional healthcare leader, we strive to provide an environment that promotes wellness, prevention, and treatment. Our smoke-free policy is a positive way for Regional West to practice what we teach.
Smoking has dangerous health consequences, not just to those who choose to actively smoke cigarettes, but also to those who are subjected to second-hand smoke. According to the American Cancer Society, cigarette smoking accounts for at least 30 percent of all cancer deaths.
Second-hand smoke is responsible for 3,000 lung cancer deaths each year in non-smoking adults and is the third leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States after active smoking and alcohol use.
Regional West's smoke-free policy applies to all patients, visitors, and staff and includes:
- The hospital facility
- Medical Plaza North
- Medical Plaza South
- St. Mary Plaza
- Parking lots
- All property grounds
- Rugger Drive
- Off-campus properties
Patients who are not able to stay nicotine-free during their hospital stay can ask their medical provider to prescribe a form of nicotine replacement therapy.
