Our Healthy Environment

As part of our commitment to a safe and healthy environment for our patients and staff, we limit smoking, fragrances and latex in our hospitals.


Bluewater Health is a smoke-free environment inside and out, including parking lots. Smoking is only allowed off Bluewater Health property on city sidewalks. This applies to the smoking of cannabis and tobacco and the use of electronic cigarettes. Patients who smoke are encouraged to ask for information about programs and products to help them to stop smoking during their hospital stay.


Please don’t wear perfume, cologne, or aftershave while in the hospital, or bring flowers with strong scents. Some people are highly sensitive to fragrance and can suffer severe allergic reactions.


Exposure to latex rubber may cause severe allergic reactions. Latex rubber balloons are not allowed in the hospital. Only mylar (shiny foil) balloons are permitted.
