Acknowledging the inconsistency between advising on the health hazards of tobacco use and allowing its use on hospital grounds, Colleton Medical Center is taking a stronger position launching our smoke and tobacco-free campaign – A Breath of Fresh Air- and prohibiting tobacco use by anyone – employees, volunteers, medical staff, contract staff, vendors, patients and visitors – throughout our entire campus.
From now on, Colleton Medical Center will provide smoke-free environments.
Tobacco use of any kind will not be permitted:
- in the buildings or on the grounds of the hospital, surgery center, our campus medical office building including the walking track
- at any office/program operated off-site by one of the above facilities.
If you are a patient who smokes, you may request that your physician prescribe a smoking cessation aid for you while you are with us. We will do our part to make you comfortable in this new environment, and ask that you and your family support the effort while you are with us.
Here’s to your good health!

CEO, Colleton Medical Center
