WXYZ — Detroit businessman Dan Gilbert was taken to the hospital Sunday after experiencing stroke-like symptoms. A company statement was released on behalf of Gilbert:
"Early this morning, Dan Gilbert sought care at a local hospital after experiencing stroke-like symptoms. He received immediate medical attention and is currently recovering comfortably. Our collective thoughts and prayers are with Dan for a speedy recovery. The Gilbert family respectfully requests privacy at this time."
He was treated at Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital and is now recovering comfortably.
Through his companies, Gilber has invested billions of dollars in Detroit neighborhoods. His hospitalization comes a month before Rocket Mortgage is set to host Detroit's first PGA tour event. It also follows his launch of a ballot drive just days earlier to push auto insurance reform in Michigan.
