Barlow Respiratory Hospital, located in Echo Park, is critical to the Los Angeles healthcare system and community at large. More than 70 hospitals actively refer their most critically ill patients to this one-of-a-kind long-term acute care (LTAC) health facility – allowing scarce beds to be made available to other patients in the area and offering respiratory patients a higher likelihood of recovery.
