DALLAS, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Physicians' Capital Investments, LLC (PCI), a leader in medical real estate development and medical investment solutions, and Fresenius Medical Corporation, N.A. announced today that they received the "2013 Outstanding Development Award - New Construction" for its recent Sandy Complex, LP project from the City of Sandy, Oregon. The Sandy Complex, LP is an award-winning 4,696 square feet, 12-station FMC Dialysis Facility located at 37139 Hwy. 26, Sandy, Oregon, 97055. The award was presented by Sandy Planning Commission Chair, Jerry Crosby, and accepted by Jim Turner, Director of Business Development for PCI, and Jean Stevens, Regional Vice President of FMC.
In April of 2008, design standards became effective for all commercial, industrial, and non-residential (school and church) buildings. Known as the "Sandy Style," the design guidelines are the result of extensive public involvement.
Following adoption of Sandy Style design standards, an award program was developed to bring public attention to quality building projects within the city and to honor those individuals who were responsible for making those projects happen. 2013 is the fifth year the Outstanding Development Awards have been presented.
Sandy Style is an architectural style developed by the City of Sandy, modeled after the Cascadian Architectural style by adapting elements of the English Arts and Crafts and Oregon Rustic styles. The intent of the new standards is not to make all buildings look the same, but rather to ensure that they all have certain design elements in common in order to create a more unified overall appearance. Some elements of the style include:
· Steeply pitched roofs and gables
· Strong base materials using stone, block, or brick
· Exposed heavy timbers or natural wood beams, posts, and trim
· Warm earth-tone paint colors and/or brick
· Articulated building facades with prominent covered entries
· Windows to allow viewing into the building
· Public gathering spaces
· Pedestrian focused site layout with parking and vehicle access
"PCI is honored to be recognized with the 2013 Outstanding Development Award for New Construction. This project was a direct result of PCI and FMC's strong medical development partnership and our commitment to collaborate and thoroughly understand the medical needs and aspirations of the local community. We look forward to additional growth in the Mount Hood Corridor," said James Turner, Director of Business Development for PCI.
"The Sandy project signals PCI's entry into the state of Oregon. PCI and FMC are honored to work with and act as a catalyst in the City of Sandy for medical related development," said Pedro Vergne-Morell, CEO of PCI.

The web app is Agile. The REST API is Agile. The testing and planning are Agile. But alas, Data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes which force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software orga...

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...
