MMH is the first in New York State to launch the “Hospital Opt to Quit Program” with the support of the Tobacco Cessation Center of Northern New York. When a patient is admitted to Massena Memorial Hospital during their inpatient assessment from the Nursing Team, a patient is asked if they use tobacco and would like information about quitting tobacco. Department representatives who are part of putting the MMH Opt to Quit Program together are, from left, Jay Lawrence, Information Technology; Donna Dishaw, RN, Medical/Surgical Unit; Debbie Willer, RT, Respiratory Therapy Director; Beth Gero, Ph.D., MA, Certified Tobacco Intervention Specialist; and Ty Batten, Information Technology.
