Huntington hospital to go tobacco-free in June

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) – St. Mary’s Medical Center is planning to ban tobacco use starting this summer.

WSAZ-TV reports that the Huntington hospital plans to go tobacco-free on June 27.

Tobacco use already is prohibited inside hospital buildings. St. Mary’s says it will eliminate three outside designated smoking areas.

St. Mary’s says the tobacco-free initiative is a way to show its commitment to healthy living.

At least 10 other hospitals in West Virginia have adopted similar bans.
