Halstead's Medical History
Since 1902, when Arthur Hertzler, the "Horse and Buggy Doctor," established his clinic and hospital in Halstead, the city was widely known as a medical community for many years. Halstead Hospital served the community for over 100 years until its closure in 2002. The city was also home to a nursing school which operated as part of the hospital for many years. The Halstead Hospital once was known as the "Little Mayo Clinic of the Midwest" because of the quality and skill of care available to patients.
