Smoke- and Tobacco-Free Campus
Dupont Hospital is a smoke- and tobacco-free facility. Smoking, including the use of e-cigarettes, vaping devices and other similar products, along with the use of any other tobacco products, is prohibited on the hospital campus.

The tobacco-free policy was not created to infringe upon the right of personal choice, but rather to promote and protect the health of those for whom we provide care. It is especially important that those who may have compromised immune systems or other health conditions that leave them more susceptible to the effects of secondhand smoke not be exposed to it while on the hospital campus.

Anyone motivated to stop smoking or using tobacco is encouraged to check out these resources.
