  (Ms. FOXX of North Carolina asked and was given permission to address 
the House for 1 minute.)
  Ms. FOXX of North Carolina. Mr. Speaker, I rise to recognize J. Gene 
Faile for his outstanding career and his impending retirement after 30 
years of dedication to healthcare administration.
  A veteran of the U.S. Air Force, Faile began his career at Yokota Air 
Base in Japan. Afterwards, he earned degrees in finance and business, 
and became a sought-after hospital administrator and advisory board 
member around the country.
  For 10 years, Faile has served as the President of Wake Forest 
Baptist Health-Wilkes Medical Center in my district, championing 
excellent patient care and strengthening the hospital's finances. 
During his tenure, Wilkes County has been blessed by his generosity and 
leadership, including with the March for Babies, Wilkes Community 
College, Wilkes Chamber of Commerce, and The Health Foundation, Inc.
  Although he will be missed in the Fifth District, I wish him and his 
wife, Peggy, a wonderful retirement with his family in Raleigh.
