Patient Care Setting



Dr. Mohney enjoys caring for children hospitalized with a broad range of illnesses for the opportunities it provides to work with families and multidisciplinary teams toward a common goal. Clinical education of medical students and residents is a major focus of her work.

Professional Background

Dr. Mohney is a graduate of Juniata College (BS), where her Spanish studies and an exchange program led to work with an international development non-profit in Quito, Ecuador after graduation. She then attended the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry (MD). She completed her pediatric residency training at the UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, and worked as a community pediatric hospitalist in Pennsylvania before returning to the University of Rochester Medical Center to join the Pediatric Hospital Medicine division in 2022.


Dr. Mohney has participated in quality improvement initiatives to standardize sepsis screening, team huddles, and electronic order sets through the Improving Pediatric Sepsis Outcomes (IPSO) Collaborative. She is also passionate about improving care for Spanish-speaking families and underserved populations both locally and abroad through global health initiatives.
