McCann School of Business was founded by Louis C. McCann in 1897 in Mahanoy City, Pennsylvania, as a school of accountancy and secretarial training. Louis McCann’s sons, Dwight and Charles, entered the field and held administrative positions at the school and its additional locations. After the death of Dwight McCann in 1956, Dorothy Houser began serving as director. In 1959, Ms. Houser purchased the school in partnership with her husband, Harry D. Houser.

In 1981, James and Elizabeth Noone purchased the school from the Housers and McCann Education Centers, Inc. was formed. In 1995, the school opened an additional location in Pottsville, Pennsylvania to provide a better service and quality of education to residents of southern Schuykill County. A third campus of McCann commenced operations in September, 1998, in downtown Sunbury, Northumberland County.

In August 2002, McCann Educational Centers Inc. was acquired by the company now known as Delta Career Education Corporation headquartered in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The Scranton campus opened in 2003 and relocated to Dickson City, Lackawanna County, in 2008. The original Mahanoy City campus relocated to Hazleton in 2005, and in 2009 the school opened additional locations in Carlisle, Pennsylvania and Allentown, Pennsylvania. In 2010, the Pottsville campus opened an additional location in Macon, Georgia and in 2011 opened an additional location in Gulfport, MI. The Macon and Gulfport campuses are named Miller-Motte Technical College. They share the name of the Miller-Motte family of schools, also owned by Delta Career Education Corporation. In early 2012, an additional location of McCann was opened in Wilkes-Barre, PA.

In 2012, McCann School of Business & Technology merged with Miami-Jacobs Career College and the Academy of Court Reporting. Pottsville remains the main campus and additional locations were acquired, as a result of the merger, in Dayton, Springboro, Troy, Columbus, Sharonville and Independence Ohio. All of the acquired schools share the name Miami-Jacobs Career College.

The Role of a Surgical Technologist

Surgeons may perform the surgery but surgical tech’s make the surgery possible. Surgical tech’s otherwise known as “scrubs” prepare the operating room for surgery by setting up surgical instruments and equipment, assemble both sterile and non-sterile equipment, get patients ready for their operation and transport the patient to the operating room to name just a few responsibilities. A surgical tech must be able to work under pressure keeping a clear and organized mind in order to perform their role effectively.

Theory and practical applications of the body systems are learned. Students are introduced to the environment of the operating room. They also get hands-on training in surgical equipment and supplies, sterilization, instruments and setting up an operating room. Surgical skills and laboratory procedures are learned so as to meet operating room requirements.

Surgical Tech Education in Pennsylvania

Most programs involve classroom courses as well as clinical training. Programs will provide students with critical thinking, communication and problem solving skills that are necessary to the role of surgical technologist. These skills along with work experience can provide a future of opportunities in related areas such as supervisory roles or advanced surgical specialties.
