SMOKE FREE CAMPUS POLICY

Maimonides Medical Center has instituted a smoke-free, tobacco-free policy. Use of smoking tobacco and all other tobacco products are prohibited on any of the Maimonides’ properties — inside and outside, including the parking lot.

This policy reflects Maimonides’ commitment to providing quality care and a healing environment for our patients and their families. Patients who use tobacco products do not recover as quickly as those who do not. By making our campuses completely tobacco-free, we are able to limit the effect of secondhand smoke in all of our locations.

Patients and visitors seeking assistance in smoking cessation may call 718.283.8644, call 311 or visit www.nysmokefree.com.
