Livingood House-Stryker Hospital is a historic building located at Reading, Berks County, Pennsylvania. The Livingood House was built between 1866 and 1871, and is a three-story, five-bay, Italianate style brick building on a rubble stone foundation. The original three-story rear ell was extended to ten bays with the conversion of the dwelling to a private hospital in 1908. A long and narrow, four-story, one bay addition was built about 1921. It was converted to apartments in 1933.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.[1]
