Steve Scalise, who was in critical condition after the shooting that took place during the Republican baseball practice for a charity event in June, was released from Washington hospital Tuesday.
MedStar Washington Hospital Center said that Scalise is starting “intensive inpatient rehabilitation” at an unknown institution.
Anyhow according to the hospital, Scalise is feeling good and he has made “excellent progress in his recovery.”
“He is in good spirits and is looking forward to his return to work once he completes rehabilitation,” the hospital stated. “He and his family are grateful for the care he received from the trauma team as well as the other doctors, nurses, and staff of MedStar Washington Hospital Center.”
Adding that Scalise’s family “appreciates the outpouring of prayers and support during this time.”
In June, Scalise was moved out from intensive care but shortly after because of a complication he was readmitted in July.
Scalise was in hospital care almost six weeks after he suffered a gunshot to his left hip which seriously harmed his internal organs. Scalise had numerous of surgeries in order to repair the damage.
Other four persons were injured during the incident June 14 in Alexandria, Va.
Dr. Jack Sava, director of trauma at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, stated that the injuries Scalise had were almost deadly.
“When he arrived (at the hospital), he was in critical condition with an imminent risk of death,” Sava stated.
James Hodgkinson, of Belleville, Ill, the reported shooter, was killed by the police at the place of the incident.
