Prior to the initiative, the hospital had designated areas for smokers. As part of the initiative's launch, the hospital threw away ash trays and converted an employee smoke hut into a storage unit, according to the report. The hospital's tobacco-free policy also applies to the hospital's clinic, parking lots, lawns and other areas.
