Charitable Services

Barlow Respiratory Hospital is built upon a legacy of specialized services. In addition to providing specialized medical care, heatlh education and continuiing medical education, we are dedicated to serving our community. We were founded as a charity hospital in 1902 and our first patients received life-saving care free of charge.

Our history of Charitable Services has provided a valuable benefit to our community for more than a century and includes:

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.
