For Case Managers

At Barlow Respiratory Hospital, we specialize in serving medically complex and hard-to-wean ventilator-dependent patients admitted directly from hospital Intensive Care Units (ICUs). Our admissions process is streamlined and simple: To refer a patient to any one of our three Los Angeles area sites in Downtown Los Angeles, Van Nuys, or Whittier, hospital discharge planning case managers can contact our Admissions Department at 213-202-6878 or fax us at 213-250-7415

Admissions are accepted 24/7: after hours and on weekends and holidays.

Barlow Respiratory Hospital is the only not-for-profit long-term acute care hospital (LTCH) in Los Angeles. We provide care, compassion, and hope by serving your most medically complex patients who cannot be effectively treated in the conventional healthcare setting.
