(FOX 2) - Following reports that Dan Gilbert was hospitalized Sunday morning, news broke he had shown stroke-like symptoms.
Following pleas for privacy, Quicken Loans' CEO Jay Farner released statement regarding Gilbert's status.
Dan Gilbert and his family are grateful for the outpouring of support following the news of his hospitalization early Sunday. We appreciate the community’s concern, and with his family’s permission, provide the following update:
Dan was not feeling well Sunday morning so he was taken to the hospital by a family friend. While under care at the hospital, he suffered a stroke and was immediately taken in for a catheter-based procedure, then moved to recovery in the Intensive Care Unit.
Dan is awake, responsive and resting comfortably. Dan and his family are immensely grateful to the doctors and nurses whose early intervention is already paying dividends toward his recovery.
We will update the public as additional details become known. Thanks to the strong culture and leadership Dan has built and grown, business at the Rock Family of Companies will continue under the normal, everyday direction of their respective CEOs.
Our collective thoughts and prayers remain with Dan for a speedy recovery.
The 57-year-old was scheduled to speak at the Mackinac Policy Conference this Wednesday, however that plan is uncertain. Owner of Quicken Loans, Rock Ventures and much of Detroit's downtown real estate, Gilbert's name frequently comes up in news regarding development in the city.
