Real Estate Bisnow
June 2, 2008


Join Bisnow for our hip, evening rooftop networking bash—FREE, but you must sign up. At the cool, newly renovated Woodward Building, June 11, 6-8pm. Co-hosted by SJG Properties, Nixon Peabody, and Davis Construction. Sign up here!


On Saturday night, we joined 600 at the National Building Museum to mark 50 years since WHC opened on land purchased from a dairy farm, and not even musical headliner Dionne Warwick's psychic friends could have predicted the fun.


MedStar CEO Ken Samet with WHC chairman of neurosurgery F. Donald Cooney, a hospital  resident since '67. What's Ken focused on? One thing is ER One, a WHC facility intended to be the region's go-to ER in the event of catastrophe. Though fully functional without chaos, its specialty will be scalability during the unexpected. Some of the technologies, such as rooms that can be sterilized with vaporized hydrogen peroxide, are already in use, but Ken's working with the Fed to fund a new building, too.


Surprised to see us, Dionne? Don't "Walk on By." We're here for you. "That's What Friends are For." Right? We almost didn't make it, but "(There's) Always Something There to Remind Me." Namely, you calling us and telling us to come. Anyway just wanted to say you're great and "I'll Never Fall in Love Again." OK, we'll stop.


Washington Cancer Institute medical director Sandra Swain and husband Steve Jones. Sandra tells us the Institute team will be racing for the cure again this Saturday; they were last year's biggest team, weighing in at 1400 runners. Wow!  


Director of cardiovascular surgery Paul Corso and associate director of cardiology Stuart Seides share a drink with spouses Karen and Anne. In the fall, Stuart's leading a team of surgeons and cardiologists to Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand. They need to practice toasting with mango lassi and rice wine.


ABC-7's Leon Harris emceed the event, which raised $2.1 million dollars of giving for the WHC Foundation. Not bad considering their original goal was $1 million. Leon funds a minority scholarship at his alma mater, Ohio University's College of Communications, but this great guy seems to help every good cause in DC.


We were one physician short of capturing the entire Washington Cancer Institute radiation oncology department. (Just like the president's cabinet, we assume one member avoids all photos to ensure departmental survival in the event of nuclear attack.) Mola Omogbehin and Robert White flank department chair Pamela Randolph. Robert says the department's stereotactic radiosurgery—used for neurological problemshas expanded to include eradication of tumors over the entire body. Despite the high-tech work, Robert travels often to study ancient cultures; next trip: the Galapagos.
