As the region’s leading healthcare provider, Lakeland HealthCare recognizes our responsibility to positively transform healthcare and the health choices of those we serve and employ within our community. We believe it is important to model healthy behaviors and are asking our employees to model the same behaviors we promote to our patients.
As part of our commitment to promote health and healthy choices to the community, Lakeland HealthCare will no longer hire individuals who use products containing nicotine. Please note that the use of any Nicotine Replacement Therapy product would apply, including but not limited to, cigarettes, ecigarettes, cigars, pipes, chewing tobacco, nicotine patches or nicotine gum. Anyone who is offered and accepts a position with a hire date after January 1, 2014, will be tested for nicotine during our regular post-offer pre-employment testing. If the test results come back positive for the use of nicotine, you may be eligible to re-apply after 6 months.
We are committed to helping our community overcome the use of nicotine and have included some helpful resources below:
