School of Radiologic Technology
Both Mercy Medical Center and St. Luke's Hospital established schools of radiologic technology in the 1940s. In an effort to increase the schools' efficiency and to keep the cost of tuition low, the two hospitals combined their schools into a single program in 1981.
Mercy/St. Luke's is fully accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) (Accreditation Status: 8 Years; Most Recent Site Visit: 10/18; Interim Report Due 2022; Next Site Visit: Fourth Quarter 2026). The JRCERT may be contacted at 20 N Wacker Dr., Suite 2850, Chicago, IL 60606-3182. (312)704-5300. www.jrcert.org . Program effectiveness data may be found here as well.
All schools of radiologic technology may voluntarily seek programmatic accreditation from the JRCERT. The JRCERT promotes excellence in education and enhances the quality and safety of patient care through the accreditation of educational programs. The JRCERT is the only agency recognized by the U. S. Department of Education for the accreditation of educational programs in radiography.
