Does anyone have code for creating a vertical bar graph with a broken y-axis?

Nope. This only seems to work for scatter plots. I want a vertical bar plot.

Are you sure you want to do this? In my opinion this rarely looks good and also is usually not the best way to convey information. What about an insert plot showing the small values? You cannot do this with standard MATLAB. You could play around with placing patches over the bars, but it is not going to look professional. I think you can do this with SigmaPlot.
