Nicotine Use Policy

Lake Health is committed to providing a completely nicotine free environment to promote a healing atmosphere for its patients and a healthy environment for its patients, team members, volunteers, physicians, vendors, patient family members and visitors. The central role of Lake Health is to treat disease and promote good health for members of the community; and as a strong advocate of healthy living Lake Health does not condone the use of nicotine products.

If you are a nicotine user or have used nicotine products in the last 90 days, Lake Health will not consider your application for employment at this time. Smoking cessation resources are available to the community and may be found on the Lake Health website. Once you meet our nicotine free requirement, we hope you reconsider applying for employment with Lake Health. Anyone who is offered and accepts a position at Lake Health will be tested for nicotine during a regular post offer pre-employment physical examination. Any individual who tests positive for nicotine will be eliminated from further employment consideration and pending job offers will be rescinded.
