At Barlow Respiratory Hospital, we focus on successful patient outcomes with a commitment clinical quality and outcomes across the full continuum of care.
Our annual Outcomes Book is published to illustrate our expertise and is built upon our legacy of excellence.
In 2017, Barlow Respiratory Hospital published its first Outcomes Book. The publication highlights the hospital’s unique role in the continuum of adult acute respiratory care, with a focus on patient outcomes. As the only not-for-profit long-term acute care hospital in California, Barlow is recognized for excellence in treating medically complex patients dependent on a ventilator to breathe and is committed to preserving access to continued intensive care of the highest quality for patients.
As pioneers in the care of the chronically critically ill, Barlow Respiratory Hospital has treated and liberated more patients from prolonged mechanical ventilation than any other hospital in the nation. This high volume has helped the hospital build expertise and develop innovative approaches to treat ventilator-dependent patients, most notably using the hospital’s TIPS© weaning protocol.
