The Nebraska Sanitarium at Hastings was built in 1907 through the help of the Seventh Day Adventists of Hastings Nebraska.

The sanitarium was accompanied by a church, conference office, Bible supply house, the Adventists Headquarters, and intermediate school dormitories. The facility was built of brick and cost $30,000. The sanitarium boasted modern surgical treatment and hydriatic treatment and was overseen by members of the church. [1]
