Description

We are deeply saddened to share that #OSUWexMed lost a member of our family this morning as a result of a tragic accident. Michael Tighe, BSN, RN-BC, a nurse on the Tower 8 medical-surgical unit at East Hospital, was riding his bike early today when he was struck and killed by a car. Michael had been with East Hospital since 2004, first as a patient care associate and then as a patient care coordinator. Michael made an impact on our patients with his skilled, compassionate care and on our hospital through his natural leadership abilities. Michael was a cancer survivor and set to ride in his first Pelotonia on the Team Buckeye – East Hospital peloton. The hearts of all of us at Ohio State are with his family and friends at this time.
