Bay Pines renamed after Congressman Young

ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) -

A St. Petersburg veterans hospital has been renamed after the late U.S. Rep. C.W. "Bill" Young.

President Obama signed the legislation Wednesday to rename the Bay Pines Veterans Administration Medical Center.

Young was a longtime Republican who represented the Tampa Bay area for 43 years in Congress. He died last month at 82 years old. The House and Senate fast-tracked the legislation to rename the hospital after him.

Young was laid to rest in the Bay Pines National Cemetery, which is next to the medical center that will now bear his name.
