There is no safe level of second hand smoke. Smoke-free hospital properties reduce harm, promote healthy choices and support a safe and healthy environment for everyone, including patients, staff and visitors. Horizon is committed to health promotion and disease prevention; this initiative supports our mission of helping people be healthy.
Effective September 29, 2015, the entire Saint John Regional Hospital property will be smoke free. This policy will be extended to all Horizon hospital properties over the next 12 months.
