Neighbors fuming over UPMC smoking policy

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, September 11, 2008

Neighbors of UPMC St. Margaret in Aspinwall, PA, are hoping recent talks between the town's council and the hospital's leaders will bring a solution to their ongoing problem with smokers. Last year, the hospital banned smoking on its campus, which has forced smokers off-site—mainly along Delafield Road and Lexington Avenue—where they have frequently been seen discarding their cigarette butts on sidewalks or lawns.
