SCHOOL OF RADIOLOGIC TECHNOLOGY HISTORY
The Medical Center School of Radiologic Technology had its beginning in 1952 sponsored by The Medical Center, which at that time was known as the Columbus City Hospital. Later, when the name of the hospital changed, the name of the school became The Medical Center School of X-Ray Technology. The school began under the direction of Dr. George L. Epps as Medical Director and Miss Jacquelyn Wester as Chief Technologist. In the beginning, the school was a one year program until July of 1960 when it became a two year program as required by accreditation from the Joint Review Committee on Education in X-Ray Technology. Under the direction of Dorothy R. Freeman, in January of 1967, The Medical Center School and the St. Francis School were combined into one school, and, at the time, was named The Medical Center-St. Francis School of Radiologic Technology. The St. Francis School had opened in 1951. From 1970 to 2003 the program was under the direction of Ms. Ruby Montgomery. The name of the school was changed in 1983 to The Medical Center School of Radiologic Technology after separation from Saint Francis and in meeting with accreditation recommendations and requirements.
After the retirement of Ms. Ruby Montgomery in May 2003, the program became under the direction of Mrs. Patricia Mansell. In October 2003, the program transitioned to Columbus Technical College. The Medical Center School name was changed to Columbus Technical College School of Radiologic Technology. In 2014, after the retirement of Mrs. Patricia Mansell, the program director changed to Mrs. Martha Dollar, who had been the Clinical Coordinator under Mrs. Mansell’s direction. The Clinical Coordinator of the program is now Kimberly Whitaker.


PHYSICAL FACILITIES/LOCATION:
Through the years, the school has progressed from having no assigned physical space with classes being held in various radiographic rooms to being assigned classroom space in the Whiteside building, adjacent to The Medical Center and formerly occupied by the nursing program. In December 1990, the school was assigned a newly renovated 3,000 sq. ft. building located on Center Street adjacent to The Medical Center. The building provided four offices, a library, and two classrooms. In October of 2003, the school moved to Columbus Technical College in Carl Patrick Hall at 928 Manchester Expressway, where classroom facilities were available for academic instruction. The Medical Center Imaging Department still maintained lab facilities for the program until September 2010 when the program moved to the new Health Sciences Center (Robert L. Wright Health Sciences Building) on River Road. The new building houses lab facilities for the program on the second floor, with 1 radiographic room, one C-Arm, and one Portable X-ray machine, donated to the program by Midtown Medical Center. Classroom facilities are available for all classes of the program in the Health Sciences Building.
