Open to Our Community

Our Barlow Respiratory Hospital main campus in Los Angeles has traditionally been open for health-related community group meetings free of charge in our historic Williams Hall. Due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and construction to ReBuild Barlow, we have had to suspend access and hope to resume in the near future.

We always welcome the community for open air tours of our campus.

Charitable Services

Barlow Respiratory Hospital is built upon a legacy of specialized services. In addition to providing specialized medical care, health education and continuing medical education, we are dedicated to serving our community.

  • Medical Care Services
  • Charity Care
  • Medi-Cal
  • Support Groups for individuals living with chronic lung disease
  • Community Health Meetings
  • Respiratory Health Education Programs
  • Quit Smoking Programs

Despite dramatic changes in the healthcare landscape since that time, we honor the legacy of our founding donors by focusing on patient care. Barlow Respiratory Hospital is the only not-for-profit specialty respiratory care hospital in California.

We accept private insurance and Medi-Cal and Medicare. This means we receive much lower payment from government funds for the care of some patients. This is a significant commitment we continue to make in service to our patients and our community.
