The Mary Washington Hospital School of Radiologic Technology has a 33-year history beginning with the first class of seven students that were accepted in August of 1991 and subsequently graduated in July of 1993. During the past 31 years, the 210 individuals who graduated from the program had an overall first time ARRT (American Registry of Radiologic Technologists) pass rate of 92% and an overall job placement rate of 99%.

The first classes were held across from the old Mary Washington Hospital building at 2301 Fall Hill Ave in Fredericksburg, VA. As the school grew and more space became available, the school relocated to the General Washington Building at 2217 Princess Anne Street in Fredericksburg. In 2006, the Program moved to its current home located at 2300 Fall Hill Avenue, Suite 260, where we continue to strive for excellence in the imaging sciences.
