This 2-day, online auction is being hosted by BidMed. All registered bidders can inspect the equipment by appointment on August 14 or 15 at Essentia St. Mary's Medical Center, located at 407 E 3rd Street in Duluth. To schedule a visit, please Andres Seritella at or 630-930-3341.

During the auction, those bidding will enter the maximum amount they're willing to pay for an item, which remains hidden and is never revealed.

BidMed then places bids on your behalf using the automatic bid increment amount (based on the current high bid), only increasing your bid as necessary to maintain the highest bid or meet the reserve price, up to your maximum amount.

If another buyer places an equal or higher maximum bid, we will notify you by e-mail so you can place another bid. Maximum bids remain confidential until exceeded by another buyer.

Payment is due August 18 by the close of business. Cash, cashier’s check, wire transfer, credit card, and PayPal are all accepted, but keep in mind that credit card and PayPal payments incur a 3% processing fee. Equipment must be paid in full before it can be picked up.
