Detroit Medical Center Adopts Nicotine-Free Hiring Policy

Detroit Medical Center will stop hiring smokers or tobacco users beginning July 1.

Under the new policy, all job applicants will be required to complete a nicotine screening as part of their pre-placement assessment. The policy is effective for all DMC locations and job titles.

The system's nicotine-free policy will not apply to existing employees, although DMC still encourages them to stop smoking and use hospital smoking-cessation services.

The system went smoke-free in July 2007.
