Haysville medical building up for auction


HAYSVILLE – A former medical building in Haysville is going up for sale at auction.
The building at 7030 S. Broadway most recently housed Intermediate Medical Care, but that clinic closed this summer. An online auction will take place from Oct. 5 to Oct. 21.
The building is being auctioned by McCurdy Auction. The 8,291-square-foot building sits on just over two acres. It was built in 2003 by Key Construction.
The property is being auctioned without a minimum or reserve price. Information may be found online at www.mccurdyauction.com.
The property includes a waiting area with a glass dome ceiling and two water fountains, 16 patient rooms, and five offices.
The building was a busy medical clinic in the early 2000s, operating as the Schneider Medical Clinic, but it became the center of an infamous criminal case involving the abuse of pain medications.
Dr. Stephen Schneider and his wife, Linda Schneider, were arrested, tried and convicted for illegal distribution of prescription pain killers, and the clinic closed. Prosecutors tied them to 68 deaths.
The Schneiders were found guilty after an eight-week trial in 2010 and sentenced to decades in prison. They were re-sentenced in 2015. The United States Supreme Court ordered new sentencing. To impose the harshest sentence under the federal Controlled Substances Act, the Court said that the victims’ drug use must be the actual cause of death.
Stephen Schneider was then sentenced to 30 years in prison, and Linda Schneider was sentenced to 33 years.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, “the Schneiders billed more than $4 million to Medicaid and other health insurance providers while they operated the clinic unlawfully, distributing controlled substances without a legitimate medical purpose, falsifying insurance claims, and engaging in unlawful financial transactions with the proceeds of the crimes.”
