Smoke Free Zone

I saw an article about a hospital that will no longer hire smokers. I'll post a link down below. What do you think of the idea of banning smokers from being hired in hospitals? What other fields do you think should ban smokers from being hired if any?

Edit: The argument has been made that those who work in healthcare should live a healthy lifestyle and set an example. Do you think other unhealthy lifestyles (like obesity, alcohol consumption, etc.) should be used to determine if someone should be hired in healthcare?
