Tobacco and Flu Policies

​​​​SSM Health is committed to being a leader in public health issues. As a leading health care organization, we have an opportunity to be a role model and encourage wellness through all levels of our organization.

Tobacco: Tobacco use carries significant health risks. We are smoke-free on all SSM campuses. We actively work with employees throughout SSM Health and offer smoking cessation programs, as needed.

Flu: At SSM Health we have the sacred privilege of caring for patients every day. To help keep our patients and employees​ healthy, employees are required to receive a flu shot each year. Employees who decline to receive this important immunization must submit a waiver indicating their religious or medical reasons. We believe this immunization is crucial to providing the safest patient care.​
