Mission

The mission of Barlow Respiratory Hospital, a not-for-profit, long-term, acute care specialty healthcare organization, is to make a positive difference in the lives of individuals with chronic critical illnesses and complex respiratory conditions in post-acute settings.

Notes from the nonprofit

In 2016, Barlow Respiratory Hospital became the FIRST hospital in the Western United States to earn the Disease Specific Gold Seal of Approval® for Respiratory Failure Certification from the Joint Commission.
The certification is a symbol of quality that reflects our commitment to providing safe and effective patient care. I am proud of our staff's accomplishments and our more than 114 years of excellence in serving patients with respiratory illnesses.
We have also been selected as the ONLY West Coast Passy-Muir Center of Excellence, recognized for treating patients with tracheostomies, on and off the ventilator.
At Barlow Respiratory Hospital, we specialize in serving medically complex and hard-to-wean ventilator-dependent patients admitted directly from nearly 100 regional hospital Intensive Care Units. We also operate a distinguished Wound Care program and are an affiliated teaching facility for USC's Keck School of Medicine.
Barlow is the only not for profit LTACH in Southern California. We provide care, compassion and hope by serving an important role in the continuum of care for a small but growing patient population who cannot be effectively treated in the conventional healthcare setting.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Ventilator Weaning

Barlow Respiratory Hospital is recognized for a ventilator weaning success rate of nearly 60%, among the highest in the nation.
Our Barlow TIPS© Ventilator Weaning Protocol was developed by Barlow board-certified pulmonologists based on years of specialized respiratory care practice.
Barlow's Ventilator Weaning Program gives hope to those who are dependent upon machines to take their next breath. The program has achieved outstanding results with patients unable to be liberated from the ventilator, or "weaned," at other hospitals. Using a step-by-step method, implemented and monitored by dedicated respiratory care practitioners, patients move at their own pace through a careful process that supports the recovery of independent breathing.
The only facility of its kind on the West Coast, Barlow is also a leader in the publication and presentation of outcomes research in the post-ICU setting of long-term acute care. Barlow combines the latest research, technology, and cutting-edge therapies with an individualized approach that encourages communication between patients, families and the entire team of health care specialists.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

At Barlow Respiratory Hospital, work is outcomes-driven and focused on achieving the best possible quality of life for our patients. Our expert Barlow team works to ensure each patient has the best quality care while in hospital, and the appropriate support they need to resume fulfilling lives after discharge from the hospital. Barlow Respiratory Hospital is a small, community-based hospital with a long history of specialized respiratory care.

Barlow Respiratory Hospital is a Long Term Acute Care hospital (LTACH) with a specialty in weaning patients from ventilators. We focus on clinical quality in all we do. Our focus is on providing excellent care for our patients and on providing kindness and compassion to our patients and their family members.

Most of our patients are referred to us from traditional hospitals, often from the hospital's intensive care unit. Our patients require heightened levels of treatment and care provided only in a specialized long-term acute care hospital setting. We treat critically ill patients with intensive and highly individualized treatment.

Barlow Respiratory Hospital serves patients with complex medical conditions who are ventilator-dependent, require longer hospital stays and benefit from the highly specialized, expert care provided by our Barlow team. Our expert team of board certified doctors, licensed nurses and therapists, and our administrative and support staff share a common goal of making a positive difference in the lives of our patients and their families.

Barlow Respiratory Hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission. As an accredited hospital, we meet standards for demonstrating quality of care, patient safety, safety of the environment, and we have an excellent associated medical staff.

Because our hospital is small, Barlow is in a unique position to be nimble and respond quickly to changes in the healthcare environment. Today we remain optimistic in the face of challenge and persistent and focused in our pursuit of extraordinary care. For the future, Barlow must be poised to continue to fulfill its mission, and we can only do that by investing in one asset that supports all others: our environment.

Though Barlow inhabits a welcoming, historic facility, the hospital's ability to function is constrained by outdated and inadequate spaces, and a deteriorating and seismically inadequate physical plant. Upgrading our 1927 building is impossible. While we strive to continue delivering extraordinary care that serves both patients and families, our ability to do so is increasingly limited by a lack of physical, functional space that can be put to flexible use.

To that end, we have one realistic option: Rebuild Barlow Respiratory Hospital.
