Smoking Cessation Information
On May 1, 2005 Southeastern Med extended their tobacco-free policies to include all outdoor grounds, property and parking areas. Eliminating tobacco use from hospital campuses is a national trend that provides a healthier environment for everyone who visits the campus. This means all patients; visitors and associates will not encounter second-hand smoke while visiting Southeastern Med’s property. We believe this effort will create a healthier environment for everyone who visits our campuses by eliminating second-hand smoke. It demonstrates Southeastern Med’s commitment to improve the health of the community by setting an example for other organizations and businesses to follow. The Tobacco & Smoke-Free campus initiative is driven by the strategic goal to improve the level of safety and quality within the hospital and ambulatory areas. Southeastern Med strives to be the Provider of Choice, offering exceptional care to individuals and maintaining a safe and healing environment. The Employer of Choice strategy also directs the tobacco & smoke-free hospital campus initiative through providing a clean and safe environment for staff to continuously provide quality care and work.
