VA Loma Linda Healthcare System along with all VA's across the nation is changing our smoking policy to further our commitment to provide a safe and healthy environment for all. The policy covers all smoking materials including but not limited to:

  • Cigarettes
  • Cigars
  • Pipes
  • any other combustion of tobacco
  • non-Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approved electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS), including but not limited to electronic or e-cigarettes, vape pens, or e-cigars.

Beginning October 1, 2019, smoking will no longer be permitted on the VA campus for patients, visitors, contractors, volunteers, vendors and employees.

You are strongly encoraged to leave all smoking materials at home. To reduce the risk of ignition near oxygen or other flammable gases used in our facility, some areas may require materials to be stored during your visit.

VA Loma Linda offers smoking cessation treatment services for Veterans and Employees. If you would like more information about smoking cessation, please contact your Primary Care Team.
  • VA Loma Linda Vetrans can ask for a Preventive Medicine referral to ACC ECHO clinic at (909) 825-7084 ext. 1869.
