As part of our commitment to provide you and all of the patients at our hospital with an environment of well-being, the administration at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center is proud to announce that our campus is entirely smoke-free. This ban prohibits the use of tobacco products anywhere on hospital owned property, including parking lots and courtyards.
We realize this policy may pose a significant lifestyle challenge to many of our patients. As such, we have several options in place to assist you during your hospitalization, including the use of nicotine replacement therapy. Information about smoking cessation programs is also available upon request.
As Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center continues to take a leadership position in the health of our community, we feel that this initiative is our best course of action in order to protect our patients, visitors and employees from the harmful effects of second-hand smoke and promote healthy lifestyle practices. We hope that you will respect these guidelines and help us lead by example.
We thank you for your understanding and wish you a full and speedy recovery.
