With the help of a local smoke-free coalition, Franciscan Villa, South Milwaukee, Wis., has eliminated smoking on its premises. The coalition worked with the Franciscan Villa staff to develop policies, literature and a timeline for implementation of the smoking ban. Franciscan Villa also offered to pay for smoking cessation classes for employees. For more information, contact Sue Goelz of Franciscan Villa at suegoelz@catholichealth.net.
