Penn Health System to Stop Hiring Smokers

Right on the heels of Frank's thought-provoking post yesterday "Get Wellness Soon--Or Else," comes this story from The American Journal of Bioethics:

The University of Pennsylvania Health System will no longer hire smokers and other tobacco users, starting in July.  The system, which includes the Hospital of the University of Penn., said the policy would improve the health of its workforce and reduce the cost of health-care benefits.
