  (Mr. LaMALFA asked and was given permission to address the House for 
1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. LaMALFA. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate the Grass 
Valley Surgery Center located in Nevada County in northern California 
for being recognized as the California Ambulatory Surgery Association's 
ACS of the year.
  This award, which acknowledges the excellent strides that have been 
made in the areas of engagement, advocacy, quality, education, and 
community involvement, serves as a testament to the hard work and 
dedication displayed by the administration, surgeons, physicians, and 
staff on hand at the Grass Valley Surgery Center.
  I visited several times the location and had an opportunity to tour 
the surgery center and learn more about the high-quality, cost-
effective services they provide, including procedures in general 
surgery, gynecology, orthopedic, pain management, podiatry, and 
  I am very grateful for their presence, as are our constituents in 
northern California and Grass Valley. This serves as a model of how to 
make health care more efficient and reach more people in the United 
  Congratulations to them on this recognition.
