Posted May 12, 2016

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Mark Bomon “Bo” Connell has been selected as the assistant dean of hospital operations at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (VMTH) at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM). In this role, he will serve on the CVM’s Executive Committee, chair the VMTH Hospital Board, and work closely with Departments of Large Animal Clinical Sciences, Small Animal Clinical Sciences, and Veterinary Pathobiology.

In addition to supporting the CVM in continuing to deliver state-of-the-art healthcare to its veterinary patients, Connell will support an environment that values teaching, the hospital’s growing clinical trials, and the CVM’s One Health emphasis.

Currently, Connell oversees the teaching hospital at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, where he identifies areas for strategic investment across the school. He has also served as director of strategic initiatives at the Savannah College of Art and Design and director of planning & business development at Memorial Health University Medical Center, both in Savannah, GA.

“Bo Connell is an individual who is forward thinking, team-oriented, and understands the intersection of our expanding teaching, research, and patient care missions,” said Eleanor M. Green, the Carl. B. King dean of veterinary medicine. “He shares our aspirational goals for excellence in all aspects of hospital operations, including creating the hospital of the future. He is an outstanding leader and will make a great addition to the CVM’s innovative leadership team.”

Connell received his master of business administration in 2002 at the University of Florida, his master of health services administration in 1995 from the University of Central Florida, and his certificate in executive leadership in 2014 from the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School.

“I am excited about the opportunity to join the outstanding team at Texas A&M University, and I look forward to working together as we create the veterinary medical teaching hospital of the future,” said Connell.

The VMTH is a world-class animal healthcare facility that sees over 18,000 small animals and 9,000 large animals per year. An additional 30,000 to 40,000 state-owned animals are treated annually through external CVM and VMTH programs.
