Smoke Free Policy

Smoke Free Policy

The only location where tobacco use is permitted near St. Charles facilities or adjacent grounds is inside private vehicles.

In the best interest of the health of our patients, visitors and health care providers, St. Charles Health System’s facilities are entirely tobacco-free. Tobacco use — defined as the smoking of cigarettes, cigars and pipes and the use of chewing tobacco — poses a significant health risk to the user and can be harmful to others. Tobacco use restrictions apply to all caregivers, physicians, patients, families and visitors.
