Biography

Marianne Garland, MD, is Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Columbia University Medical Center. She is the Medical Director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Lactation Program and Donor Human Milk Program and also the Medical Director for the Physician Extender Program.

She applies her expertise to evaluate and treat newborn infants who need intensive care, including extremely premature infants, infants with respiratory failure, and babies with complex congenital and surgical problems. She is part of a team of neonatal doctors, numerous sub-subspecialists, neonatal nurses, and many other support personnel providing the best family-centered care to these infants. As Director of the Lactation Committee, her goal is to help mothers who wish to breastfeed, even if they are apart from their baby. She also recently established the use of Donor Human Milk for the smallest of babies in the NICU at NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital.

In addition, Dr. Garland oversees the large group of neonatal nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and hospitalists providing direct care to NICU babies and supports many of the quality improvement initiatives they undertake.

She is dedicated to the mission of improving children’s health and committed to advancing the science of neonatal care, specifically for pharmacotherapy in newborns and evidenced-based methods to support lactation in mothers separated from their baby. Her goal is to optimize outcomes for every infant to have a healthy childhood and fulfilling life.
