Boundless / Harding Hospital Site

December 2022 update

Building G (Boundless Health Building) completed an extensive renovation and opened its doors in September 2022. While they specialize in primary, dental and mental health care for people with special needs, they're open to anyone and are happy to serve the whole family. Construction crews are finishing interior work on the gymnasium located in the lower level of Building H (right next to Boundless Health, to the south and west. When complete, the gym will have new glass windows to allow natural light to come in the gym. Site improvements that are underway include:

  • Landscape work on the exterior of both Boundless Health and Building H. Plants will be added to these spaces in the spring.
  • Signage in front of the Boundless Health Building and at the stop sign where Proprietors Road ends in the middle of campus. Should be finished soon, but the weather may delay.
  • Moving the fenced in playground space west of the original location. 
  • Adding some new trees before the weather gets colder. 

The I Am Boundless Worthington Campus is a care and support center for children and young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It is located at the former site of the historic Harding Hospital and is accessible via Proprietors Road just south of 161.

September 2021 update

Boundless, formerly known as Franklin County Residential Services, is expanding its Worthington operations to become a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), allowing the campus to provide health care to the surrounding community and the campus population it already serves. 

To create new healthcare and educational facilities, campus buildings G and H will be the first to be renovated. Improvements also include a new loop road and parking connecting to these two buildings. 

Boundless has submitted a proposal that will be discussed at the October 28, 2021 Architectural Review Board meeting. 

History of Harding Hospital Site

Harding Hospital was founded in 1916 by George T. Harding II, MD to provide treatment for people with physical, mental, social and spiritual needs, and operated on its 45-acre Worthington campus until 1999, when it became part of The Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center. In 2014, Step-by-Step academy purchased the property and provided mental health services out of some of the buildings. In 2017, Step-by-Step merged with I Am Boundless, formerly known as Franklin County Residential Services, which is now headquartered at the site.
