FLINT (WJRT) -

(02/01/13) - A statewide hospital system headquartered in Flint is taking a bold stance against smoking.

It impacts McLaren Health Care, one of the largest providers in Michigan.

Effective Feb. 1, the company will no longer be hiring people who use nicotine.

It applies to all of their campuses, including the one in Flint.

It's a corporate initiative that will not impact existing employees, just new hires.

Under the new policy, pre-employment screening will now include nicotine testing.

McLaren says the move is part of an effort to foster a healthy environment for patients, caregivers, and the community.
