Tobacco-Free Workforce

It is of utmost importance to the leadership and staff of The MetroHealth System to provide a healthy environment for our patients, staff and visitors, as well as for our community. We are proud to be a tobacco-free campus and facility, in addition to offering MetroHealthy, an employee wellness program.

MetroHealth only hires tobacco-free applicants.

External job applicants must confirm that they do not use tobacco products when applying for positions at MetroHealth. Along with regular pre-employment health screenings, new hires are tested for tobacco use; those who fail the screening are welcome to re-apply after 90 days.

Like many health systems and other organizations before us, we are taking this step to ensure a bright future for MetroHealth, our staff and our patients.
