NEW YORK (February 13, 2023) Dr. Jennie G. Ono, a leading pediatrician who focuses on inpatient care, newborn medicine and pediatric asthma, has been appointed chief of pediatrics at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens. Dr. Ono also serves as an associate professor of clinical pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medicine.

In her new role, Dr. Ono will continue to grow the pediatric primary care, subspecialty and inpatient programs at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens, and increase access to high quality, comprehensive pediatric care for patients and their families in the borough. She will also expand community outreach and strengthen collaboration with pediatric divisions at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and Weill Cornell Medicine.

“Dr. Ono is a skilled leader, pediatrician and researcher whose commitment to caring for children and families will be a tremendous asset to Queens and all the communities we serve,” said Jacyln Mucaria, president of NewYork-Presbyterian Queens.

“Dr. Ono is an excellent choice to lead our pediatric team at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens as we continue to expand access to exceptional care and enhance our research and education programs to better serve children and their families in Queens,” said Dr. Sallie Permar, pediatrician-in-chief at NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children’s Hospital and chair of the Department of Pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medicine.  

Dr. Ono joins NewYork-Presbyterian Queens from NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, where she most recently served as the medical director for inpatient pediatrics and the director of the Weill Cornell Medicine Pediatric Asthma Program.

“I’m excited to grow the pediatrics program at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens and reach more children, adolescents and young adults in need of our care,” said Dr. Ono. “NewYork-Presbyterian Queens is a special place, and I look forward to working with the outstanding team here to provide more people with high quality, comprehensive care.”

Dr. Ono is a leader in research and education and has authored numerous prestigious publications in peer-reviewed journals. Her academic interests combine research in childhood-onset asthma and improving the delivery of asthma care through quality improvement initiatives. Her ongoing research investigates the role of lipids in asthma, specifically in association with genetic predisposition and viral-triggered asthma, and she is collaborating with Cornell Tech to develop novel ways to monitor asthma in children through the Pediatric Asthma Program at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian Queens.

She received her undergraduate degree at Vassar College and earned her medical degree at the State University of New York at Buffalo, School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, and later completed her master’s degree at Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences. She completed her residency in pediatrics at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.
