Control of cigarette smoke in public places is a solution to maintain health that is possible by arranging regulations for no-smoking areas.The aim of the study to determine the implementation of Makassar City Regional Regulation No.4/2013 focusing on non-smoking areas in Makassar City hospitals.The method was qualitative with phenomenological design and was conducted in two hospitals, were RSI Faisal and RSUD Kota Makassar with the total of nine informants for each hospital selected through snowball sampling technique.Data collection was in the form of in-depth interviews and observations,data analysis used content analysis. The results at RSI Faisal showed that the implementation of Makassar City Regional Regulation was not optimal, yet due to less commitment of the involved actors, no flow of coordination in the regional regulations and lacking in discipline of the hospital supervision. The research discovered that there was no maximum socialization and communication from the government on no smoking areas regulations in Makassar. The informants did not know the contents of the regional regulations, but they understand the rules of no smoking area and the implementation in the hospital. Conclusion, policymakers should apply socialization of Makassar City Regional Regulation No. 4 of 2013 on no smoking area.All implementers have to committed and coordinate based on the explanation in the regional regulations.
