Horace Bomar to retire from the University of Michigan Medical School at the end of 2018
Horace Bomar has been a valued leader of the Facilities Management and Planning team since he created this high-performing unit in 1986. Over the next 32 years, he nurtured the growth of a team that continues to provide outstanding service to the Medical School and Michigan Medicine in its reorganized and expanded form.
Bomar spearheaded countless facility changes during his time at U-M, including serving on the team that managed the demolition of Old Main Hospital and its connection to the Medical Science Building complex. He led every major and minor demolition, renovation and new construction project at the Medical School campus since the mid-1980s, including the Biological Sciences Research Building (BSRB) and most recently the renovated Taubman Health Sciences Library (THSL). He also participated in multiple University and Medical Center master planning projects and the planning, procurement and activation of the North Campus Research Complex.
In addition to directing and managing all of the capital projects, Bomar’s team provided continuous facilities services to our various building occupants and strengthened the partnership with central campus Facilities and Operations service providers, as well as those in the HHC Facilities Planning and Operations group. He also contributed his expertise and wise counsel to many central campus and Health System committees, as well as national AAMC/GIP boards and committees.
Bomar’s mark on our Medical School is truly remarkable, and will never be forgotten.
Please join us in congratulating Bomar on 32 years of outstanding leadership and service to the Medical School and Michigan Medicine. We wish him the very best in retirement.
