PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix hospital is injecting a little Poison into families waiting for sick loved ones, thanks to a donation from 1980s hair band singer Bret Michaels.

The Poison frontman plans to announce Thursday that he is donating TVs and sound systems for a waiting room at the St. Joseph’s Barrow Neurological Institute, where he was treated in April 2010 for a brain hemorrhage. The equipment will allow families to relax and listen to music.

In return, the waiting room will be named after Michaels.

He was also treated at the hospital earlier this year for a procedure to fix a hole in his heart. Doctors discovered the hole when they treated him for the brain hemorrhage.

Michaels says in a statement that the room will be “warm and hip.”
