TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Northwest Medical Center is starting out 2014 as a tobacco and smoke free campus. 

As of Jan. 1, NMC's new policy prohibits the use of any tobacco products on the campus, as well as any affiliated facilities like urgent cares, ambulatory surgery centers and physician's offices.

This new ‘no smoking' policy, will apply to all employees, physicians, patients, visitors, volunteers, contractors and vendors; it also prohibits the use of all tobacco products, including chewing tobacco and e-cigarettes, on the NMC campus. The ban also extends to all private vehicles on campus.

"As a community hospital, Northwest Medical Center is dedicated to improving the health of our patients and community. Becoming a smoke-free property is the standard for many health care institutions and we are proud to join in providing our staff with a healthy and safe workplace and our patients with a healthy and safe healing environment," said Kevin Stockton, NMC CEO in a recent news release.

The hospital also stated it has a variety of resources available to staff, patients and visitors to aid in any efforts to quit smoking.
