The Board of Trustees of North Carolina State University has approved the naming of the future Veterinary Teaching Hospital for a longtime supporter of the College of Veterinary Medicine.

The Randall B. Terry Jr. Companion Animal Veterinary Medical Center will be built adjacent to the existing animal hospital on the college’s campus. The $35 million facility will offer the very latest veterinary diagnostics and therapeutics. From cutting-edge technologies in imaging, cardiac care, and cancer treatment to internal medicine and surgery, the new facility will be dedicated to animal health and designed to meet the increasing needs of its patients while fulfilling the college’s mission of pioneering research and teaching excellence.

"Animals give so much to mankind, it’s only fitting that we give back something to them. This new veterinary medical center will help enhance the medical care they receive," Terry said.

“Randall Terry has been perhaps the most dedicated supporter of the College of Veterinary Medicine,” said Dean Oscar Fletcher. “His vision and leadership have been invaluable to our goals of creating the very best college of veterinary medicine. His time, talents and resources have been crucial in helping this college become what it is, and we are very grateful for his very generous gifts.”

Chancellor Marye Anne Fox said, “The College of Veterinary Medicine has benefited from Randall Terry’s volunteer efforts and gifts for a long time. His support has helped to train
scores of veterinary students, introduced them to the latest technical advances and helped enhance the pet-care services we provide to the people of North Carolina and beyond.”

The College of Veterinary Medicine has grown considerably since it was founded in 1980, to the point that the Veterinary Teaching Hospital has simply run out of space for people, programs and equipment. The latest animal care advances and research possibilities can’t be achieved without larger facilities.

Terry has contributed his time and resources to the College of Veterinary Medicine since the mid-1990s. He chaired the first campaign for the college, as part of the Campaign for NC State Students, which resulted in $10 million in gifts and pledges to support scholarships. Terry has also served two terms as president of the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Foundation (NCVMF), the foundation that supports the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine. To date, the Randall B. Terry Charitable Foundation has contributed more than $8 million in cash and pledges to the new Companion Animal Veterinary Medical Center.

The 122,000-square-foot Randall B. Terry Jr. Companion Animal Veterinary Medical Center is scheduled to open in 2009.
