About Your Hospital Stay

Valley Presbyterian Hospital is dedicated to creating a healing environment for our patients and visitors. A smoke-free campus environment supports this mission and enables us to provide the highest quality, safest health care possible. Therefore, patients and visitors are prohibited from smoking piped, cigars, cigarettes, or e-cigarettes of any kind in the hospital or on the hospital campus.

Physicians are prohibited from writing orders for patients to be allowed to smoke while under our care. As part of our commitment to our patients' health, we encourage smoking cessation by asking physicians to order cessation aids such as nicotine gum or patches. Our staff also provides patients and family members with community resource referrals for smoking cessation programs.
