It is the policy of the hospital to provide a safe, healthful and comfortable
work environment for all employees, visitors, patients, physicians and
customers by prohibiting smoking in the Hospital building and grounds.
We believe that a smoke-free policy is consistent with our leadership
role in the health care field and contributes to employee wellness and
productivity. This policy is consistent with the requirements of Monterey
Park Municipal Code (MPMC) Chapter 6.20.
This policy applies to all Hospital employees, visitors, patients, physicians
and customers and is in effect 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.
Smoking is prohibited in all areas of the facility, including restrooms,
elevators, stairways, courtyards, plazas, lobbies, any atrium or patio,
corridors, hallways, seating areas, waiting rooms, reception areas, parking
structures, outdoor eating areas and outside of the building. Smoking
is also prohibited within 20 feet of any of these places. Violation of
this policy will be regarded as any other violation of Hospital policy
and may result in corrective action.
