As the holiday season traditionally brings families together, Indiana University Health Arnett Hospital is reminded of Arnie Cooper, a retired Purdue professor and long-time resident of West Lafayette, who will be with his family during the holidays. His daughter, Katherine, was a longtime blood donor before Arnie was diagnosed with leukemia. Now, she gives in honor of her father, who requires a blood transfusion every two weeks at IU Health Arnett Hospital.
 
IU Health Arnett Hospital partners with Indiana Blood Center to ensure stable and reliable blood supplies for their patients. During the last year, Indiana Blood Center provided IU Health Arnett Hospital with nearly 4,000 blood components.
