Hollister Free Lance

Smoking remains allowed on the Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital campus, but one healthcare district trustee is working to change that. While many hospitals ban smoking on their properties, Hazel Hawkins hospital in Hollister allows it in certain areas. San Benito Healthcare district Trustee Gordon Machado, however, said he is working to get a smoking ban implemented on the publicly owned hospital campus off Sunset Drive.
