Bay Pines VA Medical Center will officially commemorate its name change in honor of the late Rep. C.W. Bill Young on April 25.

The ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. on the grounds of the medical center campus located at 10000 Bay Pines Boulevard. The new name is the C.W. Bill Young Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
