Tobacco-free campus

In keeping with our mission to improve the health and wellness of our community, Hennepin Healthcare is a tobacco-free campus. Tobacco use and secondhand smoke are leading causes of illness and death. Our patients, employees, and visitors should be able to access our services without being exposed to a known health threat when they walk to and from our buildings.

Where is tobacco restricted?

Tobacco use is not allowed anywhere on Hennepin Healthcare property, including sidewalks surrounding Hennepin Healthcare, off-site clinics, parking ramps, inside vehicles in parking ramps, parking lots, and vehicles owned or leased by Hennepin Healthcare. We do not have a designated smoking area. View the Tobacco-Free Campus Map (PDF).

To whom does the policy apply?

Everyone on Hennepin Healthcare property, including employees, patients, visitors, volunteers, vendors, contractors, etc.

I smoke and have a hospitalization coming up. What should I do?

Please discuss your tobacco use with your healthcare provider before your hospitalization. If you experience any discomfort during your stay, we will offer nicotine replacement therapies and other resources.

Resources for Hennepin Healthcare Patients

Talk with your health care provider. They can refer you to the array of tobacco cessation resources we offer at HCMC, including:

  • Nicotine replacement and other medications to help quit through our pharmacies
