Officially opening in May 1939 Barrow Hospital was later requisitioned by the government in Spetember of 1939 to serve as the Royal Naval Auxiliary Hospital during WW2, with control being returned to the former owners in August of 1946 greatly easing the overcrowding at Bristol Mental Hospital, whose population had grown throughout the war.

On the 5th July 1948 control of the hospital was transferred to the newly formed NHS and was jointly managed alongside Bristol Mental Hospital by the Bristol Hospital Management Committee under the South Western Regional Hospital Board.

In a national survey of hospital cleanliness conducted in 2005 Barrow Hospital was found to be the dirtiest hospital in the country inspectors stated the hospital had "an unacceptably dirty environment", Two of the hospitals three remaining wards were immediately closed and their patients were transferred to other hospitals, With the final ward emptied during the summer of 2006.
