Equipment from shuttered physician-owned hospital in Texas to go up for auction

Medical equipment from a physician-owned hospital in Dallas that closed last month is scheduled to be auctioned off Aug. 21 and 22.

Pine Creek Medical Center was built in 2005 and operated as a short-stay hospital with a digital operating room where physicians performed orthopedic, spine, bariatric and urology procedures. In 2017, the medical center was ordered to pay $7.5 million to settle allegations that it had been paying kickbacks to physicians in exchange for surgical referrals for patients, including those on Medicare. Pine Creek also allegedly paid to advertise physicians' services in local media. 

Items for sale include hospital beds, radiology equipment, surgical instruments and backup generators.
