Thomas Bond (American physician)

Thomas Bond was an American physician and surgeon. In 1751 he co-founded the Pennsylvania Hospital, the first medical facility in the American colonies, with Benjamin Franklin, volunteered his services there as both physician and teacher. Bond was born in Calvert County, the third of five sons of Richard Bond and Elizabeth Chew; the family moved to Philadelphia. He traveled to Paris and England in 1738 to complete it, he returned to Philadelphia in 1739, two years was made Port Inspector for Contagious Diseases in that city. In 1743, he helped his long-time friend Benjamin Franklin establish the American Philosophical Society. Having formed a favorable opinion of British hospitals in the course of his studies, Bond began trying to raise funds in 1750 to establish a place of care for both the sick and the mentally ill for the poor. Unable to raise the funds himself, he turned to his friend Franklin. Together they co-founded the Pennsylvania Hospital, located on Eighth and Pine Streets in Philadelphia.

The hospital drew attention as a center for medical advancement in maternity care and the humane treatment of mental illness, a poorly understood area of medicine at the time. Bond volunteered his services as a surgeon at this facility for more than three decades, from the year of its founding until he died; some years after the hospital opened, he was joined there by his younger brother, Phineas Bond, a skilled physician. Dr. Bond earned a high reputation as a surgeon for amputations and bladder stone operations. Many patients traveled considerable distances to avail themselves of his surgical care, he performed the first lithotomy in the United States at Pennsylvania Hospital in October 1756 and developed a splint for fractures of the lower arm, known as a "Bond splint." In 1737, he was one of seven physicians to publicly recommend inoculation against smallpox. Thomas Bond served as trustee of the University of Pennsylvania, where, in 1766, he began clinical lectures for the benefit of medical students.

These formal lectures supplemented the bedside clinical instruction. For his learning and pedagogy, he earned the title, "Father of Clinical Medicine." The alumni association of the Pennsylvania Hospital is today known as the Thomas Bond Society. When the American Revolutionary War broke out, the sixty-three-year-old doctor along with his son, helped to organize the medical department of the Continental Army, he established the first American field hospitals during the conflict. He was a member of the local Committee of Safety during the war, he served as personal physician to Deborah Read, Benjamin Franklin's wife, attended her during her final illness while Franklin was in France. Thomas Bond was a Quaker, his first wife, Susannah Roberts, was the daughter of the mayor of Philadelphia. They married in 1735, with her he had two children, he remarried after her early death and had seven children by Sarah Weyman, among whom was another Dr. Thomas Bond, he is buried in Christ Church Burial Ground in Philadelphia.

His epitaph reads: "In Memory of Thomas Bond, MD who practiced Physic and Surgery with signal reputation and success nearly half a century. Lamented and beloved by many and esteemed by all, adorned by literary honors sustained by him with dignity." His home at 129 South 2nd Street in Philadelphia is now a bed & breakfast, called Thomas Bond House. A letter written on August 24, 1781 by Dr. Bond provides an early reference to the production of morphine in the United States, he wrote to a Pennsylvania farmer, "The opium is pure and of good quality. I hope you will take care of the seed."
