Kudos: Tilton Award winner; Blue Blaze on Philadelphia 100; Wheeler Wolfendon’s national honor; Belfint in top 300


Colmorgen wins Tilton Award

The 2020 Tilton Award winner is maternal-fetal medicine physician Garret H.G. Colmorgen, MD.

Dr. Colmorgen is the Director of Obstetrics and Maternal-Fetal Medicine at Bayhealth Medical Center and the Chair of Bayhealth Medical Group Operating Council. He is also a Clinical Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, and a Clinical Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia.

Colmorgen was recruited to Delaware as the first maternal-fetal specialist in the First State, arriving in 1985 with the task of improving Delaware’s infant mortality rate, which at the time was close to the worst in the nation.

For 35  years Colmorgen has lead the charge, sharing his knowledge with the OBGyn community, helping train new physicians in his specialty, and leading initiatives that have made a significant impact in changing the trajectory of Delaware’s infant and maternal mortality rate.


The Tilton Award, named after James Tilton, MD, a Revolutionary War surgeon, founder and first President of the Medical Society of Delaware in 1789, and named the first Army Surgeon General of the United States by President Madison in 1813, is given annually for medical achievement to a Delaware physician.
