History

Bond Clinic was founded in 1948 by four physicians, one being Dr. Benjamin Bond. The first office was established in June 1949 at the corner of Avenue A N.W. and 3rd Street. On the first floor was a local drugstore and Bond's office was on the second floor. By 1954 the clinic expanded from four to six physicians. At that time a new building was constructed for Bond Clinic on First Street, across from Winter Haven Hospital.

In 1978 Bond moved to its current main campus location, which was expanded over the years. The building now there runs the length of the block. In 2007, the clinic opened a satellite location at 199 Avenue B, NW, in downtown Winter Haven. Many services are now housed at that location. Bond opened clinics in several other locations through the years.

Bond Clinic is well known in the area for low pay and substandard working conditions, leading to unusually high turnover rates, errors due to new / untrained staff, and patient complaints.
