Hospital To Name Waiting Room After Bret Michaels

Bret Michaels

And surprisingly, it isn’t located in the hospital’s herpes wing. I know — I’m shocked too!

The Associated Press is reporting that Poison lead singer Bret Michaels has donated TVs and sound systems for a waiting room at the St. Joseph’s Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Arizona.

That’s where he was treated in April 2010 for a brain hemorrhage that he claims, in a lawsuit, was caused by a stage prop clipping him in the head at the Tony Awards.

The equipment will allow families to relax and listen to music. In return, the waiting room will be named after Michaels. I wonder how many TVs the dude donated. I mean…that’s a lot of TVs. And a sound system? Dang!

Bret Michaels is shameless. He should have named the room after his parents or something. I don’t know. An anonymous donation is also more classy, dude.

Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center is a leading international medical center that offers care for people from throughout the world with brain and spine diseases, disorders and injuries.

U.S. News & World Report routinely lists St. Joseph’s as one of the top 10 best hospitals in the nation for neurological and neurosurgical care.
