St. Alphonsus Medical Center-Baker City is implementing a new policy beginning July 1 that will prohibit the use of tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes, at all of its sites.

The tobacco ban extends to the Baker Clinic at 3175 Pocahontas Road, and Valley Medical Clinic, 3820 17th St., which are part of the St. Alphonsus campus, said Laura Huggins, hospital spokeswoman.

The rules for the Express Care Clinic inside Albertsons at 1120 Campbell St. will follow the store's policy, Huggins said.

And the store follows Oregon's Smokefree Workplace Law, said Marc Ruberti, Albertsons store director.
