                           HON. VIRGINIA FOXX

                           of north carolina

                    in the house of representatives

                       Wednesday, April 17, 2013

  Ms. FOXX. Mr. Speaker, I rise to recognize my constituent Virginia 
Reilly McDevitt and her classmates on the 50th anniversary of their 
graduation from the New York Methodist Hospital School of Nursing.
  New York's Methodist Hospital, America's first Methodist hospital, 
opened in Brooklyn's Park Slope section in 1881. Its nursing school 
opened shortly thereafter in 1888. For years, nurses prepared at the 
Methodist Hospital to serve throughout the world, wherever the country 
might have need.
  In 1963, Virgnia McDevitt joined the ranks of New York Methodist 
Hospital's esteemed graduates.
  Today Virginia McDevitt puts her New York Methodist Hospital 
education to work serving as a home health and hospice nurse in Davie 
County, North Carolina. In the communities of Davie County she is well-
regarded for the caliber of her care, the excellence of her work, and 
the pride she takes serving patients and their families even in life's 
most challenging times.
  Congratulations are certainly due to Virginia McDevitt and the New 
York Methodist Hospital Nursing School class of 1963.
