    The Secretary of the Navy shall procure at suitable places proper 
sites for Navy hospitals, and if the necessary buildings are not 
procured with the site, shall cause such to be erected, having due 
regard to economy, and giving preference to such plans as with most 
convenience and least cost will admit of subsequent additions, when the 
funds permit and circumstances require; and shall provide, at one of the 
establishments, a permanent asylum for disabled and decrepit Navy 
officers, seamen, and marines: Provided, That no sites shall be procured 
or hospital buildings erected or extensions to existing hospitals made 
unless authorized by Congress.
