Welcome to West County Radiological Group (WCRG), the area’s imaging experts. Since 1969 we have been serving Saint Louis County and the surrounding area through our partnership with Mercy Medical Center in St. Louis and Mercy Hospital in Washington, Missouri as well as their affiliated imaging centers. We are the largest private radiology practice in the area with 34 physicians. We provide our patients with radiology services, nuclear medicine services and radiation oncology services. WCRG also has a fully staffed medical physics group serving a variety of facilities throughout the State of Missouri.
All of our physicians are certified by the American Board of Radiology and belong to the American College of Radiology (ACR). The group has more fellowship-trained subspecialists than any other institution in the area, with the exception of a local teaching hospital. Many of our physicians have served and are currently serving in executive leadership roles in state and local medical organizations in an effort to preserve the quality of healthcare.
West County Radiological Group is a hospital-based radiology group. The radiologists do not own any imaging centers or imaging equipment. Therefore, we have no conflicts of interest that would encourage us to suggest any unnecessary follow up studies. We treat our patients just like we would like to be treated; with courtesy, respect, and understanding. Our goal is to get results to the referring physicians within a matter of hours if a routine study is ordered, and within minutes if the situation is more critical. We work with our hospitals to ensure that these studies reach the referring physicians’ offices promptly.
Please feel free to email us and let us know how we are doing. You are very important to us and we appreciate your feedback. We hope you enjoy our site and find it useful.

To Be a Leader in Providing:
Appropriate, high quality, cost effective diagnostic imaging services which meet the needs and expectations of our patients and referring physicians.
By Developing and Maintaining:
Current, proven technology; attractive, accessible facilities; committed qualified staff; and a collaborative work environment.
In 1963, Dr. Thomas Maher, MD was one of the first physicians in the group who received the contract to provide radiology services for the new St. John’s Mercy Hospital (Now Mercy St. Louis), which was moving from Euclid and Parkview in the Forest Park area to the growing suburbs of West St. Louis County. Radiology was still in its infancy then. Procedures were done using plain radiography and ultrasound.In 1969, Dr. Maher incorporated West County Radiological Group, Inc.
With the addition of new modalities (CT scans and MRI scans), the group began to grow. Although it started out as a group of general diagnostic radiologists, WCRG soon became a group of general radiologists with subspecialty training. Over the years, West County Radiology incorporated Nuclear Medicine, Radiation Oncology and Medical Physics into the group. Imaging was, and still is, constantly changing. In 2006, the group started doing their own professional billing and in 2010 started offering these services to other radiation oncology and radiology practices.
Today, only one thing is certain, and that is “change is on the way”. We aren’t sure how it will effect us, but we certainly hope to continue the long tradition of providing quality services for our patients and referring physicians; and we certainly hope that we will all remain together for many more years to come.
