Stacey Petrower, M.P.A., has been appointed as the new President of NewYork-Presbyterian Queens, taking over leadership and operations of the hospital’s Queens campus at 56-45 Main St. in Flushing.

Former president Jaclyn Mucaria, M.P.A. left her role after two decades of service to NYP.

Petrower brings over 25 years of healthcare leadership experience to her new role. She previously served as the president of NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital, where she spearheaded significant healthcare improvements, including the launch of a state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization lab and a major renovation of the maternal and newborn care unit.

During her tenure at Hudson Valley, which began in January 2016, Petrower was instrumental in expanding access to top-tier specialists from Columbia University, offering lifesaving care in the region.

“I am proud of the work done at NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital,” Petrower stated. “The hospital is in great hands with Paul Dunphey and the leadership team, and I’m looking forward to leading NewYork-Presbyterian Queens, continuing to be a partner in wellness and providing the best patient care to the Queens community.”

Petrower plans to implement similar enhancements at the Queens facility, including renovations to the maternal and newborn care units and upgrades to the cardiac catheterization labs. Her goal is to leverage her experiences from Hudson Valley to elevate healthcare services in Queens, emphasizing investment in technology and overall improvements across the hospital.
