Since December 1, 2013, the Hôpital de Mattawa Hospital has been designated as a 100% smoke-free property. Patients, visitors, employees, medical & credentialed professional staff, volunteers, students and contractors are not allowed to smoke on any Hôpital de Mattawa Hospital properties, including in any vehicles located on the premises. This designation is enforceable by both the Town of Mattawa through the local Bylaw Enforcement Officer and the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit through the Tobacco Enforcement Officer, Environmental Health – Tobacco Control. We have been striving for awareness, education, and voluntary compliance; the last thing we want to see is fines and ultimately prosecution.
To help manage tobacco withdrawal symptoms while in Hospital, a variety of nicotine dependence interventions are available to our staff and patients. Please ask us about the alternatives available to assist you.
Thank you for your support, and respecting “no smoking” on all Hospital property.
