Student Voices & Success Stories

Brandon L Steach, RT (R) MR, graduated cum laude from Mount Aloysius in 2006 with a degree in radiography. Following graduation, he was offered four different jobs. Brandon was employed at Holy Spirit Hospital in Camp Hill, PA for 3.5 years, where he started in X-ray and cross-trained in a cardiovascular suite and MRI and obtained his certification in MRI.

He is currently the CT/MRI supervisor at Heart of Lancaster Regional Medical Center in Lititz, PA where he developed the protocols/policies in CT and MRI and coordinates numerous administrative responsibilities as well as performing clinical exams. Currently, Brandon directs and manages a MRI Breast program with capabilities of MRI guided breast biopsy.

Mount Aloysius is the right fit for me because it’s small and student oriented.
