Orlando Health to start tobacco-free hiring policy
Smokers need not apply. That's the word from Orlando Health, which announced this evening that it will start a tobacco-free hiring policy at seven of its hospitals starting in April. The move is part of a controversial nationwide trend, in which hospitals are leading the way. Current Orlando Health employees who smoke will be exempt from the policy, but new hires must not use tobacco in any form, said hospital system spokeswoman Kena Lewis.
