At Jefferson, we are among the leaders in the Philadelphia region in providing quality healthcare. In order to provide a safe and healthy environment for our patients, families, students, employees and visitors, Jefferson will be going smoke-free in 2014. A smoke-free task force is currently working on implementation, policy guidelines and enforcement. More information will be shared throughout the year as we look to continually improve our population health and support our new wellness program, LiveWell@Jeff.
