Little Arlo Brown is all smiles as he is hooked up to a high flow oxygen device at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital in Iowa City.

High flow matters

MercyOne’s latest fundraiser will keep patients closer to home

Let’s get one thing out of the way before we get started with this story.

You want to hug Arlo Brown, don’t you?

Seriously, is he the cutest little boy you’ve ever seen or what? 

And the 15-month-old who has a smile that would warm the heart of even the most cantankerous among us is one of the reasons why MercyOne New Hampton Medical Center is holding a new fund drive, one that will allow the hospital to purchase a “high-flow oxygen device.”

Little Arlo was born with Down Syndrome, and his story shows why the $13,000 machine is so important to the hospital, its patients and their families.
