Smoking Policy All WVU Healthcare clinics and facilities are tobacco free. Smoking is the number one cause of preventable death and disability. As a healthcare organization, we have an obligation to provide a healthy, tobacco-free environment for our patients, visitors, faculty, staff, and students. Our healthcare facilities and the entire WVU Health Sciences campus are tobacco-free. All buildings are smoke-free; the tobacco-free policy applies to all areas surrounding our buildings, including sidewalks and parking lots. WVU Healthcare offers several options for people who use tobacco products and want to quit. You can access the Tobacco-Cessation Program Guide, which lists resources and workshops for community residents, students, and employees.
