That means that smoking by patients, new residents, staff and visitors won’t be allowed on hospital grounds, or at the nursing home.

The ban includes parking lots, smoking inside a vehicle, and electronic cigarettes.

The only exception is that existing Fairview Manor residents will be allowed to smoke in a designated smoking area.

In a release, the hospital said it is committed to supporting patients, residents and staff members who wish to stop smoking.

Patients and residents should speak to their health care provider for more information. Smoking cessation programs are also available for staff.
