Sen. Van Hollen Released from Hospital Following Minor Stroke

U.S. Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md) returned home Sunday following a minor stroke and a precautionary week-long medical observation.

“It’s great to be back home after a long week. I’m grateful for the generous outpouring of support from everyone and the dedicated care I received from the team at GW.”

Van Hollen, 63, was admitted to George Washington University Hospital May 15 “after experiencing lightheadedness and acute neck pain while I was delivering a speech in Western Maryland,” he shared in a statement.

After seeking medical treatment at the recommendation of the Attending Physician, an angiogram revealed that Van Hollen suffered a minor stroke in the form of a small venous tear at the back of his head.

“Fortunately, I have been informed that there are no long-term effects or damage as a result of this incident,” Van Hollen said.
