Pennsylvania Hospital – Philadelphia
From Penn Medicine’s website, “Around 1750, Bond “conceived the idea of establishing a hospital in Philadelphia for the reception and cure of poor sick persons.” The idea was a novelty on this side of the Atlantic, and when Bond approached Philadelphians for support they asked him what Franklin thought of the idea. Bond hadn’t approached his good friend because he thought it was out of Franklin’s line of interest, but because of the reaction he received, Bond soon turned to Franklin. After hearing the plan, Franklin became a subscriber and strong supporter. Franklin’s backing was enough to convince many others that Bond’s projected hospital was worthy of support.”
