History

Radiology Imaging Consultants, S.C. (“RIC”) is a physician owned, integrated group of locally rooted, hospital based radiology practices throughout Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana & Georgia.

RIC began providing services to Ingalls Memorial Hospital in Harvey, IL in 1972 with 3 radiologists. The practice was founded on the principle of equality, superb quality and customer service by Dr.Harold Lipchultz; the practice still operates with those same founding principles. RIC still practices at Ingalls Memorial Hospital, and nine of the fourteen radiologists have been there 20+ years. RIC is proud to have a stable practice where most of our radiologists stay for their entire career.

RIC provides a standard of service unequalled in the communities we serve. This has driven our growth and assured our stability. We were the first in IL to implement 24 hour a day in-house coverage with attending radiologists in 1990 before PACS because we felt that it was important for patient care to be provided in real time.

RICs group culture revolves around the provision of final reports 24 hours/day; 7 days/week; 365 days/year, focused around customer care and the highest quality service model.
