Bret Michaels opens music room at Arizona hospital
Tuesday - 10/9/2012, 8:13pm EDT
PHOENIX (AP) - Former Poison frontman Bret Michaels is showing off a new room for patients and their families at the Phoenix hospital where he was treated for a brain hemorrhage.
The musician officially opened the Bret Michaels Hospitality and Music Room inside St. Joseph's Barrow Neurological Institute on Tuesday.
The room is located near patients' rooms and features relaxation areas for patients and families. It is decorated with a music theme and features Michaels' personal music memorabilia.
Michaels says he's thrilled to give back to a hospital he credits with saving his life.
He was treated at the hospital in April 2010 for a subarachnoid hemorrhage, a life-threatening type of stroke.
He then returned to St. Joseph's in 2011 to undergo a heart procedure.
