It is located in the Crook County Health Department building. Starting this Wednesday (May 1st) Mosiac Medial in Prineville will implement a smoke and tobacco free policy.
Elaine Knobbs with Mosiac says it just made sense.
"We just know that tobacco use is the number one cause of preventable death. There are over 64 deaths a year in Crook County attributable to smoking and tobacco use. And as a care provider it is our obligation to have a smoke and tobacco free environment or patients, employees and visitors."
Knobbs say Mosaic Medical plans to go smoke-free in its other facilities in Bend, Redmond and Madras in the next year.
