For generations, the names "Woodard" and "Steenburg" were synonymous with healthcare in Hamilton County. Dr. Daniel Woodard arrived in 1882 and was the area's first physician and surgeon. He was soon joined by Dr. E.A. Steenburg (and others). Over their decades of service, these medical men witnessed the evolution of healthcare from horse and buggy house calls to high-tech hospitalizations. They also left a legacy of compassionate and progressive care that resonates still today at Memorial Community Health.
