Vital Signs

(Click to enlarge graphic in new tab/window.)

Let’s clear the air.

Beginning January 2, 1990, St Michael Hospital became a smoke-free environment—the first hospital in the region to adopt this policy.

You’ll see signs posted throughout our facilities as a reminder of this effort toward an environment that eases our patients’ recuperation and that is healthier for everyone—patients, visitors, staff. We feel our vital signs are improving—improving our healing environment; improving the health of our friends.

Please support this effort, and look for the designated smoking area outside the hospital if you wish to smoke.

Or better yet, enroll in our “Freedom from Smoking” Program, sponsored by St Michael Hospital and the American Lung Association.
