Reason for the Policy
Gen Medical Hospital is a smoking free environment, inside and throughout the surrounding parameters of the property. Tobacco use is a leading health condition, in which may cause severe illness, dietary restrictions, growth in diseases, and major causes of death. Primary smokers are the reasons for inhalation of secondhand smoke to their surrounding persons. Gen Medical Hospital created this policy to keep their patients, guests, and staff workers in a healthy smoke-free environment, ensuring safety for their well-being.
