Health Care System in Colorado Will Stop Hiring Tobacco Users

As of Dec. 31, Centura Health will no longer hire tobacco users, a move that aligns with their 2012 policy prohibiting tobacco use at any of its 15 medical facilities.

“We wholeheartedly believe this is the right thing to do for our organization,” said Wendi Dammann, Centura’s vice president of communications. “As the region’s leading health care system committed to improving the health of those we serve, it is important that we first serve as a role model for our communities by promoting the benefits of health and wellness.”
