Tobacco Free

Ahhh, enjoy the air

At Tufs Medical Center, we’re proud to be tobacco-free. Smoking or tobacco use of any kind, including e-cigarettes, is banned inside or within 25 feet of any buildings owned, leased or occupied by Tufts Medical Center.

This includes buildings and grounds (building entryways, walkways, parking garages and parking lots), and personal vehicles while on Tufts Medical Center property.

Are you a patient of ours?

If you’re a patient at least 13-years-old, we’ll check you for tobacco use during admission. If you and your doctor think you would benefit from nicotine replacement therapy, your admitting doctor will assess you for starting a program. During discharge, we’ll also give you information and support to quit smoking – for good.

Or are you visiting a patient?

We offer over-the-counter nicotine replacement products in the Outpatient Pharmacy on the Atrium 3rd floor, in the Atrium Lobby at our Gift Shop, or at the 24-hour Bakery CafeĢ.

We can only sell nicotine replacement products to those who are at least 18 years old. We’ll check too – we need a government- issued identification card, like a driver’s license.
