The Marshall University Health Sciences Campus is going smoke free.
Starting Nov. 15, Cabell Huntington Hospital, Marshall Health Sciences Campus and the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center will prohibit smoking on their property.
Smoking has been banned inside the hospital and medical center for years, but designated smoking areas were created last year as the first step of a two-step process to eliminate tobacco use on the medical center campus. Those designated areas will now be removed next month.
The dean of Marshall’s Medical School said the new policy will create a healthier environment for both employees and visitors.
Cabell Huntington Hospital will offer smoking cessation classes.
