As per KNX radio in Los Angeles, Barker was transported to a hospital after an occurrence of a flare-up and pain in his back. He is said to be alert and responsive.

A few more details from Randy West on his Facebook page a few minutes ago:

Bob Barker update...

Less than two months from his 95th birthday, Bob was taken to Cedars Sinai Hospital at approximately 1:00pm today. At present he is reported to be alert and resting more comfortably than he felt earlier.

Bob was hospitalized last week for a serious back injury. According to his spokesman William Prappas, Bob woke up this morning with a major flare-up in back pain from the previous injury, which prompted a call to paramedics.

The Los Angeles Fire Department arrived at Barker's Hollywood Hills home and carried him out on a stretcher for transport to Cedars. Prappas explained the only reason an ambulance was called was because it would have been hard for Bob to get into a car with the injury, and assistance was needed.

I'm not terribly concerned if it's just back pain.

That celebrity train wreck show could overblow a fender bender.

According to Roger, Bob's okay. He has to wear a brace for the next 3 months.

Every time. We wonder if he's going to be okay, and he always gets back up.

He certainly knows how to lead a healthy lifestyle.

He is part Native American, you know.  He's tough.

Barker's a tough ol' cat. Speaking of cats, I think Barker has about 81 lives, not just 9!

 Didn't Bob's Mother live a long time too?  Does anyone know how old she was when she passed (in 1993 I believe) away?

According to what I looked up, she died in 1989 and was born in 1897 or 1898, meaning she was about 91 or 92 years old.

Strange, because I seem to recall a video of an episode where she was in the audience sometime around 82 or so, and died before Bob went silver. I could be wrong, though, but I'll leave it to you guys to help me figure that out...
