ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Beginning today, Anne Arundel Medical Center will begin the process to ensure the Annapolis hospital is completely tobacco-free.
The hospital announced it is expanding its “tobacco-free” zones and banning e-cigarettes at all hospital facilities, including sidewalks, parking lots and garages.
There will be no designated smoking or tobacco use areas and the policy applies to all employees, physicians, patients, vendors, volunteers, students and visitors.
Then, on July 1, 2015, AAMC plans to stop hiring those who use tobacco products. The policy will not apply to people already working for the medical center.
