Boundless / Harding Hospital Site

The old Harding Hospital site is now owned by Boundless, a private not-for-profit organization which provides direct services and residential options for intellectual and developmentally disabled individuals throughout central Ohio. Facilities at this location are being renovated to suit the newly expanded service provider.


Demolition on the old Harding Hospital site has taken place to remove old buildings that had not been occupied or maintained in many years. 

Currently, Boundless is exploring partnerships with organizations that may have an interest in purchasing and developing tracts of land within the property that will be unused by Boundless. Worthington Schools is considering the purchase of 13.7 acres of land on the southeast edge of the property as a potential location for a new Colonial Hills Elementary School.

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 Boundless, formerly known as Franklin County Residential Services, which is now headquartered at the site.
