CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Tobacco use is no longer allowed at Jefferson Medical Center in Charles Town.

The hospital’s new tobacco-free policy went into effect Monday.

Berkeley Medical Center in Martinsburg implemented a similar policy on July 1. Both hospitals are part of University Healthcare’s system.

Jefferson Medical Centerl president and chief operating officer Dr. Christina DeRosa tells the Journal (https://bit.ly/1x1twbE ) that the policy applies to University Healthcare satellite office buildings in Ranson, and the new Windmill Crossing building on U.S. 340.

Tobacco use is prohibited on sidewalks, parking lots and inside vehicles parked on the campuses.

A clean air regulation approved by the Berkeley County Health Department went into effect July 1. The regulation bans smoking, including e-cigarettes, in bars, fraternal clubs, motels, medical campuses and other public places.
