Hard rock guitar player and frontman for the band Poison, Bret Michaels is giving back to the hospital that helped save the rocker’s life in 2010 when Michaels had a subarachnoid haemorrhage – bleeding in the brain.

“I want to give something back to the hospital that helped save my life. Phoenix is my home and I’m proud to be apart of this community,” said Michaels. The hospital is the St. Joseph’s Barrow Neurological Institute is an internationally renowned hospital specializing in neurological research and patient care.

Michaels is donating a music and hospitality room that will feature music listening stations and places for the family members of patients to relax. Speaking on the new music room; Michaels said, “it will be warm and hip.” “This room will be a very welcome addition for the families of our patients. Bret has demonstrated that he is a good friend to this hospital in several ways and we thank him,” said CEO and President of St. Joseph’s Linda Hunt.

Since his release from the hospital in 2010, Michaels has won the reality show “Celebrity Apprentice”, made an appearance on “American Idol” finale, and toured the US.

Michaels has helped to raise money for the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center, which is also a part of the hospital, by hosting an auction and dinner at his home.
