DETROIT (WXYZ) — Nearly one month after suffering a stroke, Quicken Loans Founder Dan Gilbert has been discharged from the hospital and will now continue his recovery at an in-patient rehab center.

In a statement, Quicken Loans CEO Jay Farner said the Gilbert family is thankful for the tremendous outpouring of support they have received.

"The entire family is incredibly grateful for the world-class care Dan received from the entire staff of Beaumont Hospital," Farner added in the statement. "Dan is looking forward to beginning an intensive rehabilitation program and is eager to continue the progress he has made over the last several weeks."

Last month, Gilbert was taken to the hospital for stroke-like symptoms, and then suffered a stroke under hospital care.

On May 29, Rock Holdings Vice Chairman Bill Emerson said Gilbert was "doing as well as he can be doing" after suffering the stroke.

"He is awake, he is responsive. I saw him with my own eyes on Monday around noon," Emerson said at the Mackinac Policy Conference. "I talked with him, he knew I was there, he knew what I was talking about."

According to Emerson, those who are worried about what might happen shouldn't be, because he has built an incredible team in the Rock Holdings Inc. group of companies.

"He's taking a break, he's taking a hiatus, and when he comes back, things will be as good or better than they were."

"He is one tough human being and he will come back as fast and as strong as anybody can in this situation, Emerson added.
