6. The Cleveland Clinic has the same policy here...
They've been trying to weed out anyone overweight, as well.

"But now the head of the Cleveland Clinic says he wants to take this bold hiring policy one step further and some are saying this would be going too far. Dr. Delos (Toby) Cosgrove, the heart surgeon who is the Clinics CEO, told the New York Times that if it were up to him, he would not only stop hiring smokers. He would also stop hiring obese people.

Dr. Cosgrove maintains that health professionals should be as proactive in addressing peoples weight issues as they are in pushing them to quit smoking."
