Philanthropists leave a lasting legacy

Comprehensive cancer services

When Frank Henry, a former Geisinger board chair, passed away last year, the world lost a great person who understood the need for and importance of philanthropy in making the world a better place. At Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, the Frank M. and Dorothea Henry Cancer Center was named in the couple’s honor after a generous contribution, and it has become a premier location for those seeking oncology care.

Donor giving like that of Frank and Dorothea Henry also plays a huge role in cancer services on the Danville campus of Geisinger Medical Center. Renovations to the Knapper Clinic are bringing most cancer services under one roof, with a special focus on survivorship, treating the whole person – not just the cancer. Thanks to gifts from the community, cancer services in northeast and central Pennsylvania are more robust, accessible and convenient for our patients.
