WILLIAMSPORT — With over 40 years of experience and 20 locations, Blaise Alexander Family Dealerships are committed to being a leader in the automotive industry and providing every customer with the best experience possible. The family-owned and operated business not only values their employees and customers, but also ensuring high-quality health care is available close to home for those in north central Pennsylvania. Contributions from the Alexander family play an instrumental role in ensuring UPMC in North Central Pa. continues to expand and grow in services offered to the communities in the region.

The Alexander family is proud to donate to Susquehanna Health Foundation’s Susquehanna Strong Comprehensive Campaign, supporting the recent renovation and expansion of the UPMC Hillman Cancer Center in Williamsport.

“This is a meaningful gift for our family as we pay tribute to Annie — a loving wife and mother — by naming the Annie Alexander Chemotherapy Infusion Suite after her,” said Aubrey Alexander. “Supporting the Cancer Center is close to our hearts. Not only was Annie a nurse at the UPMC Williamsport — Divine Providence Campus, but she also underwent cancer treatment there. We are grateful to be part of this project and to provide a space for healing and hope for those undergoing treatment.”

“This transformative gift from Blaise Alexander Family Dealerships is an outstanding example of the generous community support which ensures patients undergoing cancer treatment can remain local and receive world class care,” said Sherry Watts, vice president of Development, Susquehanna Health Foundation. “As a part of UPMC Hillman Cancer Center, our patients have access to some of the brightest minds in advancing cancer care in the world as well as the latest treatments including more than 500 clinical trials. Not only that, but our patients are cared for beyond treatment including massages, pet therapy, cooling cap therapy, nutrition services and so much more.”
