LAFAYETTE -

IU Health Arnett Hospital in Lafayette has been awarded five grants totaling $47,000 from The Indiana University Health Foundation. The funds will be allocated to projects that focus on improving the health of infants and their mothers, patients undergoing chemotherapy and victims of sexual assault.

Funding for the grants is a result of donations from individuals and organizations focused on improving the state of public health in Indiana.

The money was donated from Arnett Hospital’s Area of Greatest Need Fund, which addresses issues identified by hospital leaders. The IU Health Arnett Hospital Philanthropy Council discussed and chose which projects to fund.

“These grants fund specialized equipment and training that enable our excellent clinicians to deliver even better care,” Julie Paolillo, director of philanthropy for IU Health West Central Region said in a news release.

The following projects were funded:

•             $29,864 to establish the IU Health Arnett Center of Hope, where nurses specially trained in sexual assault examinations will use the Cortex-Flo Camera System to accurately document and provide evidence in cases of assault.

•             $6,600 to launch a support group for pregnant women and new mothers suffering from Perinatal Mood Anxiety disorder.

•             $4,845 to purchase a Premature Anne Task Trainer Twin Pack. These mannequins are modeled after premature infants and will provide more opportunities for nurses to prepare for a variety of scenarios.

•             $4,165 to enable an Arnett registered nurse to complete training to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and help new mothers with breastfeeding and lactation issues.

•             $1,530 to provide chemotherapy training and certification for 12 registered nurses, so they can administer on-site treatments at Arnett.
