The chief radiologic technologists of the participant hospitals were then given a three-part questionnaire that had undergone validation. they were selected using purposive sampling. The data gathered were subjected to statistical treatments such as frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, and t-test for independent means. Based on the findings of the study the conclusions were drawn: 1) Majority of the participants were privately owned hospitals; 2) The top five problems encountered in hiring of radiologic technologists in NCR were the following: difficulty in finding qualified applicants with skills, choosing between experience versus education of the healthcare workers, brain drain and lack of qualified and experienced people in the local pool, competition with other hospitals and hospital’s ability to accommodate the staff/employees; 3) The top five problems encountered in retention of radiologic technologists included: competitive pay and salary, fast international global competitiveness, job satisfaction, work relationship with co-employees, and growth and promotion; 4) The findings reveal that there was a significant difference in the problems encountered in hiring of radiologic technologists when they were grouped according to type of hospital.
