To protect the health of Cabell Huntington Hospital patients, visitors, employees, physicians and volunteers, and to comply with local clean air regulations from the Cabell-Huntington Health Department, the entire Marshall University Health Sciences Campus, including Cabell Huntington Hospital and its satellite facilities, will officially become “tobacco free” on Thursday, November 15, 2012. This date coincides with the Great American Smokeout.
This is the second step of a two-step process that was announced on October 25, 2011. The first step was implemented on November 17, 2011, limiting smoking to one designated smoking area for the general public and one designated smoking area for employees.
Although this step may create a hardship for patients, visitors and employees who smoke, it’s the right thing to protect non-smoking patients, visitors and employees from the proven harmful effects of second-hand smoke.
Community members interested in getting help to stop smoking are invited to enroll in Cabell Huntington Hospital’s smoking cessation program by calling 304-526-2088 or 304-696-2935.
Employees who need assistance are urged to contact Human Resources to learn about resources available to them.
Cabell Huntington Hospital asks for your support as we work to make our campus safer and healthier for you and your family.
