Press Release (ePRNews.com) - DALLAS - Jul 07, 2017 - Parkland Health & Hospital System will team up with the world’s largest medical equipment auction house, Centurion Service Group, to host a two-day public liquidation sale at a nearby hospital warehouse.
Due to the relocation and development of the new state-of-the-art hospital building, the old Parkland hospital has been left with a surplus amount of non-medical assets to liquidate. The Parkland asset management team along with Centurion Service Group, created a process of organizing and transferring remaining non-medical items to a nearby medical campus building.
With Centurion Service Group’s liquidation services, the Parkland team is able to repurpose the old hospital’s extra assets in an eco-friendly way by coordinating a public sale. The event will sell all non-medical assets that are no longer needed.
“The Parkland asset management team has worked closely with Centurion Service Group on the decommissioning project,” said Brian Green, Parkland’s Asset Management Supervisor. “We are excited to be able to offer the residents of Dallas County the opportunity to make use of these items and we look forward to seeing the community show up for the sale in a huge way.”
Sale items include, but are not limited to: office equipment, executive furniture, refrigerators, storage equipment, wall décor, and much more. Items will be sold cash and carry only, and must be removed at the time of payment. All sales are final.
The upcoming July event will mark the second public sale for Parkland since it moved in 2015. Centurion coordinated the first public sale for Parkland in October 2016. Centurion brought its staff to Dallas to work the two-day sale. In addition, Centurion hired local workers through a temp agency for security and to assist Parkland in the liquidation leading up to the public sale.
“This is the final stage of the decommissioning of the old Parkland Memorial Hospital,” said Erik Tivin, CEO of Centurion Service Group. “This is an opportunity for the Dallas community to get quality non-medical furnishings from this historic place.”
The sale will be located at 2420 Butler Street in Dallas, Texas. Sale dates include:
· – Saturday, July 15 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. CDT
· – Sunday, July 16 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. CDT
