Confluence Health will be completely tobacco-free throughout all of its buildings starting January 1st.

Marketing and Communication Director Katie Grove said the move comes in part because Confluence receives vital Medicare accreditation through Det Norske Veritas, or DNV.

“What that means is in order to be able to be a facility that accepts Medicare, you have to meet these quality standards. One of them is you have to be a tobacco-free campus.”

Under the new policy, both patients and staff will be prohibited from using tobacco products in and around Confluence buildings and grounds.

Confluence is referring anyone looking to quit to its Behavioral Health Team. Those interested are also advised to talk to their primary care physician.
