VACIHCS is becoming a Smoke-Free Facility

As part of the Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) commitment to provide excellent health care for Veterans, the department is pleased to announce that all Veterans Health Administration (VHA) health care facilities will be smoke free by October 2019. We are not alone in recognizing the importance of creating a smoke-free campus.

As of 2014, 4,000 health care facilities and four national health care systems in the U.S. have implemented smoke-free grounds, to include many of our own VHA health care facilities.  

This new policy for patients, visitors, volunteers, contractors and vendors allows VA to ensure the health and wellbeing of VA staff, patients, and the public. We will keep you informed right here as our timeline develops.
