Barlow Respiratory Hospital Foundation builds relationships in order to raise funds to support services and programs at Barlow Respiratory Hospital, thereby improving patient care and experience.
Barlow Respiratory Hospital is Southern California's only not-for-profit long-term acute care facility. We are a specialty healthcare organization, improving the quality of life for patients with respiratory and other diseases that may require prolonged acute hospitalization or specialized treatment in the Southern California region. However, patients come to Barlow for its expert, compassionate care from around the nation, and even from overseas.
Founded in 1902 by Walter Jarvis Barlow, M.D., this charitable institution began as a a site to care for patients suffering from tuberculosis. Over time, the hospital has broadened its mission into respiratory research, diagnosis, and treatment, becoming a leader in its field.
Barlow treats the most critically ill patients needing long-term acute care. Over 70 hospitals, ICUs and emergency rooms spanning all of L.A. and its surrounding counties trust and depend on Barlow for its specialized care. Even with the most difficult of cases, Barlow's Ventilator Weaning Program is the best in the nation, and currently boasts a success rate of 60%.
Barlow is renowned for its record-setting ventilator weaning rates, and this specialty has developed further expertise in treating all the conditions that keep patients chronically critically ill. Barlow's well-rounded care is incomparable. Go to our website to find out more!
