A UAB spokesman said Wednesday the 78-year-old Bartow is to begin outpatient treatment at the Kirklin Clinic in Birmingham next week.
Bartow succeeded John Wooden as UCLA's coach in 1976 and led the Bruins to the Final Four. He left after two seasons to start UAB's program.
He is now president of the company that owns the Memphis Grizzlies and is to be inducted in the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in November.
Bartow spent 13 seasons with UAB and also was the university's longtime athletic director. He coached the school to the Final Four in 1982.
