The Laurels is committed to effective communication during this unprecedented time in our history. We regularly apprise guests, families, and associates to changes in facility status and policy as needed and as deemed appropriate.
We have been humbled by the support we’ve received from the local community and we truly appreciate everyone’s continued cooperation and understanding. For more information and resources regarding COVID-19, see the COVID-19 Resources page.
A Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
The Laurels of Norworth is a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center located in the historic city of Worthington, Ohio, on the northern border of the Columbus metro area and just minutes from Interstate 270, which offers easy access to Interstates 70 and 71 as well as S.R. 315. We offer comprehensive medical care to both extended-stay guests and those seeking a positive and compassionate environment for short-term rehabilitation, respite or hospice care.
We pride ourselves on the continuity of care available to guests of our facility through individualized programs designed to meet their specific needs. We excel at short-term respite and hospice care, as well as short-term rehabilitation. And if you are rehabilitating with us, you can rest assured your therapist is working with your physician to design a plan that will get you back in the game as quickly as possible.
We put equal energy into caring for our long-term guests, whom we consider cherished members of our Laurel family. Guests enjoy a full slate of activities, community outings, special events, and birthday and holiday celebrations.
We strive to meet & exceed our guests' expectations with compassion & dignity. We call it The Laurel Way of Caring, and we do it every day.
We provide a complete range of services for patients that are unable to return home after a hospitalization. Our programs provide a safe transition from hospital to home with a depth of services that typically can not be provided through home health care or by family members.Learn More
Extended and long-term care stays are appropriate for individuals that require greater levels of care and support than can be provided at home or within an independent living setting. Our guests typically need assistance with their daily activities due to physical and/or cognitive limitations.Learn More
Short-term respite stays offer a family or caregiver a short-term reprieve from the demands of around-the-clock care. Our twenty-four hour nursing care at our skilled nursing facilities assures that all medications are taken on time and any necessary medical treatments are provided.Learn More
Palliative care provides comprehensive symptom management along with guest and family support when cure-oriented treatment is no longer possible or desired. Within a palliative plan of care, emphasis is placed on guest comfort and emotional well-being.Learn More

“Shelly sat up in the lobby with a guest until his family came to get him for his appointment. He was anxious about his appointment, but she was really kind and reassuring to him.”
My stay here was great and the staff was attentive to my needs. Anything I needed the staff made sure I had. They had someone from management meet with me daily to ask about my stay [and if I ever had any concerns they were handled immediately]. I am at home with my family because of the staff and amazing therapy department at this rehab. I cannot thank them enough for all of their kindness and hard work.
“Glenda (cook) you are the best. Thank you for going the extra mile for our guests by making her potato soup (even though it wasn't on the menu). She was very thankful.”
