SWEDISHAMERICAN SCHOOL OF RADIOGRAPHY MOVES TO NEW LOCATION

After more than a decade, Swedes' School of Radiography is moving from their current location at 1250 East State Street (next to Briggs Mansion) to the second floor of the hospital in the medical imaging department. Beginning, Monday, August 19, school staff will be unpacked and ready for the start of the new semester in their new location.

“We are between semesters this week so our move isn’t creating a disruption to the student’s education,” said School of Radiography Clinical Coordinator Stefanie Gardner. “We will stay on our normal schedule.”

The move to the second floor of the hospital now streamlines the school with medical imaging in one location. Classes will be held Monday through Thursday in the second floor conference room in the medical imaging department.

“We will have a secondary student workroom/classroom in room 2015, which also is within the medical imaging department. The faculty office will be in room 2009D, which is in the same area of the medical imaging director and supervisors’ offices,” Stefanie said.

The School of Radiography is a hospital-based, certificate program. As the program sponsor, SwedishAmerican Hospital has primary responsibility for the professional education program, and awards the hospital certificate. Our working affiliation with the University of St. Francis in Joliet, IL, allows St. Francis students to attend radiography school and SwedishAmerican. Upon completion of the radiography program, students will be awarded a Baccalaureate of Science from the University of St. Francis along with a certificate from SwedishAmerican.
