Frequently Asked Questions

Why has PeaceHealth banned tobacco use on its property?

Since part of PeaceHealth’s mission is to promote personal and community health, we’re always looking for ways to make a difference in our community. As a health care organization—and as health care workers—we have an opportunity and responsibility to set a good example and use our expertise and resources in ways that will improve the health of our community, including our workplace.

Where can I go to use tobacco while I’m in one of the PeaceHealth facilities?

If you plan to use tobacco products, you must leave PeaceHealth property, including buildings, parking lots/structures and open spaces that are owned by PeaceHealth. City-owned sidewalks will be the closest areas to go; however, we strongly encourage that you be respectful of our neighbors by taking your trash to a receptacle and keeping pathways open to others. If you need clarification on property boundaries, please ask our staff.

Who do I contact if someone is violating the tobacco free policy?
