Sam Odle, the chief operating officer of Indiana University Health and one of Indianapolis’ most prominent black business executives, will retire next month. Odle, 62, will be replaced on an interim basis by Jim Terwilliger, who became vice president of IU Health Cancer Services last year after serving as an executive at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. IU Health will conduct a national search for a permanent replacement. Odle said he wanted to have more time with his family and for personal pursuits. However, he said he would like to do consulting for some health care companies and remain active in charity work.
IU Health named Dr. Gaurav Arora the new chief medical officer for IU Health Saxony Hospital in Fishers. Since Dec. 1, Arora has been Saxony hospital’s medical director for emergency services. He is also a professor of clinical emergency medicine at IU School of Medicine. Arora holds a degree in economics from Case Western Reserve University and did his medical training at the Medical College of Ohio.
