Presentations include a ceremonial "butting out" in lieu of a ribbon cutting to remind everyone to "butt out" before they come onto hospital property.


Horizon CEO John McGarry and Dr. Robert Stevenson will be available to talk to the media about the Smoke-Free Policy.


Beginning September 29, smoking or vaping will not be permitted on hospital property. Smoke-free properties will extend to all Horizon hospitals over the next 12 months.
