Atrium Medical Center (Atrium) is dedicated to improving the health and quality of lives in our community. The hospital is responsible for providing a healthy, safe environment for patients, visitors, and staff.
Consistent with those goals, Atrium does not permit the use of any tobacco products (cigarettes, cigars, pipes, chew, snuff, and dip) indoors or outdoors, including parking lots, sidewalks, and streets within campus boundaries. Our policy goes beyond current Ohio law by eliminating tobacco products completely, creating a tobacco free campus. There are no designated smoking areas, including outside buildings.
The policy applies to all staff, physicians, patients, visitors, vendors, volunteers, contractual workers, and the general public.
On January 1, 2007, 20 hospitals in the Greater Cincinnati Health Council, including Atrium Medical Center, took a collective leadership role in improving the health of their communities by making their entire campuses tobacco-free. The following year members of the Greater Dayton Area Hospital Association (GDAHA) unanimously adopted a region-wide tobacco-free campus - adding 18 hospitals in the Dayton and surrounding areas to the tobacco-free policy. Today more than 40 hospitals across southwest Ohio have implemented tobacco-free environments for better health, longevity, and quality of life for their patients, visitors, and staff.
