Reminder: We are tobacco free
In 2010, Banner Health implemented our tobacco free policy at all of our facilities.
As a nationally recognized leader and provider of health care, we have a commitment to be health advocates for the people we serve.
Becoming tobacco-free was the right thing to do for our employees, physicians, volunteers, patients and visitors. In addition to improved health for everyone, other advantages of a tobacco-free environment include a cleaner workplace, decreased fire risk, decreased maintenance costs, lower medical costs and improved productivity.
Over the past couple of years, however, our Tobacco-free Policy has not been enforced consistently across the system. We need to remind each other, our patients and visitors that our policy prohibits the use of any tobacco product, including cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, smokeless or chewing tobacco by anyone on our grounds or inside our facilities. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
