Tobacco Policy

Non-Tobacco User Policy

University Hospitals continually strives to provide the healthiest and safest environment for our employees, physicians and patients. In keeping with this mission, effective January 1, 2012, UH will no longer hire external candidates who use any form of tobacco products. External candidates will be required to confirm their non-tobacco use when expressing interest for a job opportunity. Those selected as a new hire will be tested for all tobacco use as part of the pre-employment lab screening process. Candidates who fail the tobacco screening may re-apply after 90 days.
