Tobacco-FreeLogo(color)
Tobacco use in and around hospitals poses health and safety risks for patients, employees and visitors. While Kansas currently has a statute banning smoking in medical care facilities, as health care advocates, we voluntarily are expanding that ban to all hospital property. If you have any questions, please contact Cindy Samuelson at (785) 233-7436.
