Cleaner, healthier campuses for our employees, members and visitors
Since February 14, 2007, smoking cigarettes, cigars and pipes has not permitted in the buildings or on the grounds of any Kaiser Permanente campus in the Greater Sacramento area. There are no longer any designated smoking areas on Kaiser Permanente property.
As a health care organization, Kaiser Permanente is committed to providing a safe and clean environment for our members, employees and visitors. We care about our members’ and employees’ health. That is why we advise those who smoke to quit and provide assistance through formal programs.
Because our campuses are now smoke-free, anyone who wants to smoke must exit the campus. This means going to a public sidewalk. An alternative option would be to smoke inside your private vehicle.
