Are you talking about our hospitals programs for patients to quit smoking or what is available for employees of hospitals to quit?

To be honest for patient's we give the standards this is where you can go for more information as to how to quit smoking such as the telephone number for the local American Lung Association. To the local 12 step program for smokers.

As to employees, our facility gives $400.00 towards the employees choice of methods to quit. Whether it is a medication, a nicotine replacement method. counciling. I love what they have available for the employee.. Sign me as 2 months nicotine free and counting.
