When his opinion was handed down there was very little argument, and from it there was no appeal. He tirelessly and unselfishly made many contributions to the advancement of scientific medicine.

In 1902 he founded the Halstead Hospital and Clinic which in 30 years grew to an institution of 210 beds. He gave the Hospital to the Sisters of St. Ioseph in 1933. He had conducted researches in diseases of the peritoneum since 1894. Among other things he made important discoveries as to local anesthesia and diseases of the thyroid gland.
