Gold Star StandardsBreathe Easy conducts the Gold Star Standards of Excellence recognition program annually to encourage and support Maine’s healthcare organizations that are addressing smoking and tobacco use by creating and maintaining smoke and tobacco-free policies. As leaders in wellness, Maine healthcare organizations seek to optimize the health of patients and the surrounding community. Healthcare organizations provide key community support and are exemplary role models of health care excellence. Tobacco-free campus policies are examples of this commitment that benefits patients, employees, and the entire community.
Starting in the spring of 2023, Breathe Easy will combine the fall and spring recognition programs into one annual comprehensive recognition program. Creating one annual recognition program will strengthen the unification and integration of addressing smoking and tobacco use throughout Maine’s hospitals, healthcare organizations, behavioral health organizations and institutions of higher education.
