Ernest Bernard Hall, Jr, MD (Ernie) was born on September 12, 1953, in Parsons, Kansas. He was the son of Ernest and Eileen (Langley) Hall. He grew up in Fort Scott, Kansas and graduated from Fort Scott High School in 1971. He was an active member of First Baptist Church in Fort Scott.

Ernest attended Pittsburg State College and graduated in 1974. He went on to study at the University of Kansas Medical School and graduated with an M.D. in 1978. He practiced medicine in Hiawatha and Robinson KS from 1981 to 1984. He then moved with his family to Bolivar, MO, where he was employed at Citizens Memorial Hospital as the Director of Emergency Care. 

Ernest moved to Branson, MO in 1992, and worked in the Emergency Room at Skaggs Hospital and continued to work in other area hospitals. He worked within the St. John's Hospital System, opening a new office in Hollister in 1996. After two years he went to work at Family Medical Walk-In Clinic in Springfield, MO. In 2004, Ernest opened OmniHealth, LLC in Springfield, MO, where he has been self-employed ever since.

Ernest Married Andrea Giesen in 1995. He had five step-children; Bernadette, Brian, Patrick, William and Danielle Dohmen. Ernest and Andrea added a child of their own, Erin Lynne, in 1996.

Ernest was raised in the Baptist church, and his faith never waivered. His strong belief in the Lord carried him through many difficult situations and decisions. He tried to share and encourage this faith with everyone he knew. While he may have been away from church at times, he was never absent from God's presence. He found a permanent home at Evergreen Church in Springfield, where he gave freely of his time, talents and treasures. He taught Sunday school classes, helped with many church events, supported ministries, and raised his voice in praise. His faith carried over in his home life, his family and his work. He saw the wonder of God in nature, which was one of his passions. He enjoyed repairing and restoring cars, and was active in The GearHead Ministries, which was founded to help people find or repair cars with little or no cost to them.
