Sustainability Task Force
As part of our commitment to community health, Enloe Medical Center has a committee that has worked to expand the medical center's recycling and ecologically sustainable practices. It continues to look at practices that are good for people and the environment.
In keeping with a commitment to improve the health care of patients and the community, Enloe Medical Center became tobacco-free at all campuses on Feb. 14, 2013. Patients who need support are encouraged to request nicotine replacement through their physician before they are admitted to the medical center.
For those who are ready to quit smoking, personal support is available through the California Smokers’ Helpline, at 1-800-No-Butts. Also find smoking cessation help and information on Enloe's Health eLibrary.
