Hospitals can be powerful allies in the fight against tobacco. Not only do hospitals play an important role in the treatment of tobacco-related disease, but they can also help communities prevent tobacco use through their investment in community benefits. 

ChangeLab Solutions developed this fact sheet to provide information about what hospital community benefits are and how tobacco control advocates can work with local nonprofit hospitals to promote tobacco-free environments.
