Lady of the Sea General Hospital
PATIENT INFORMATION - Tobacco Free Campus
On August 1, 2012, the entire Lady of the Sea General Hospital campus and LOSGH Medical Clinics became tobacco-free. Thousands of hospitals across the nation have gone tobacco-free like ours, prohibiting tobacco use anywhere on campus and parking lots. A 100% tobacco-free environment is part of our commitment as a healthcare organization to improve the health of our community.
This policy applies to all staff, visitors, and patients. Thank you for your help in providing a safe and healthy environment, and we invite you to utilize the resources on the back of this card.
