The Betty Puskar Breast Care Center is named for Betty Puskar, who was married to Mylan Pharmaceuticals co-founder Mike Puskar and diagnosed with breast cancer in 1985. Betty sought treatment in Houston, Texas because there was not a breast cancer center in Morgantown. She fought through the disease and was determined to build a breast care treatment facility in Morgantown so that others would not have to leave the state to get exceptional care. Betty died at the age of 80 in 2020.
