GAITHERSBURG, Md., Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Sodexho, Inc., the leading provider of integrated food and facilities management services in North America, announced today the appointment of Patrick "Pat" E.

In his new role, Connolly will oversee operations and strategic growth for hospitals, senior services and laundry services in the United States.

"He has demonstrated his ability to lead growth in these highly regulated environments. Pat has shown that he can effectively interact with an industry that is seeing greater consumer influence and demand which will be the key to raising Sodexho's profile in all our Health Care divisions, making Sodexho the benchmark for clients and customers."

Connolly is well known and highly regarded as an expert in the seniors market and the issues facing clients and consumers. He was recently named to the Leadership Circle of the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (AAHSA). He is also a member of the Sponsorship Committee of the International Association of Homes and Services for the Aging. He has worked recently on the Institute for Aging Services' Advisory Commission, further demonstrating his strong commitment to the advancement of quality care for the elderly.
