To advance the knowledge and practice of medicine in neuroscience through basic and clinical research, education of medical professionals, and innovation in clinical techniques and technology.
Since its beginning in 1962 when Charles Barrow made a generous gift to St. Joseph's Hospital to give reality to Dr. John Green's dream to build a neuroscience institute, Barrow's mission has been to advance the knowledge and practice of medicine in neuroscience through basic and clinical research, education of medical professionals, and innovation in clinical techniques and technology.
As an integral part of St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, the largest hospital in the Dignity Health system, Barrow has been one of the preeminent centers for specialty neurological care in the country for more than four decades.
As a part of the healing ministry of Jesus Christ and a member of Dignity Health system, St. Joseph's Hospital and Barrow Neurological Institute are dedicated to delivering compassionate, high-quality, affordable health services, especially to the poor and disenfranchised, in active partnership with others in the community to improve the quality of life.
We subscribe to the ethical principles and values of the Catholic Church. Specifically, the organization is committed to providing high-quality, affordable health care to the communities we serve.
Ultimately, our vision is to serve the people of Arizona and the surrounding region as part of a spiritually-oriented and community-focused health care system passionate about improving patient care, enhancing work-life quality, and collaborating with others to create a just health system.
