HRMC to Hold Giant Garage Sale of Items from Former Dillon Living Center

– The Hutchinson Regional Medical Center Annex (former Dillon Living Center), located on the hospital campus, will be the site of a giant garage sale scheduled for 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 14. Any items not sold during the eight-hour sale will be given away on a first come first serve basis between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. on the same day.

Chuck Welch, Chief Strategy Officer for Hutchinson Regional Healthcare System (HRHS), said the sale is prompted by plans to remodel the Hutchinson Regional Medical Center Annex into a family practice clinic with Dr. Rogena Johnson along with a childcare academy slated to open in 2023.

“There are numerous items that remain on site from the days when the building was as long-term care facility that do not fit our future plans for the building,” Welch said. “All items will be reasonably priced and sold on an as is basis. A sticker on each item lists the asking price and all sales are final.”
Among the items for sale are office chairs, beds, mattresses and box springs, dressers, night stands, books, recliners, mini-refrigerators, television sets and sewing machines.

Local high school groups will assist in preparations for the sale. In turn, Hutch Regional will contribute a portion of the proceeds to the schools for funding school activities and projects.

A representative of Hutchinson Regional Medical Center representative will be on site during the sale to respond to any questions prospective buyers may have.
