After spending two months in an out-of-state rehab facility, Dan Gilbert has returned to metro Detroit. The Quicken Loans founder had been recovering from a stroke suffered in May at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab in Chicago.

Quicken Loans CEO Jay Farner released a statement Tuesday, writing, “On Friday, Dan Gilbert returned to Detroit to continue his rehabilitation locally. We are extremely thankful for all of the skilled medical professionals who have played a significant role in Dan’s recovery and are glad to have him back home.”

After the stroke on May 26, Gilbert spent several weeks in intensive care at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak. On June 19, he was discharged to the Chicago rehab facility.

According to the Detroit News, Gilbert is not back to work and it has not been confirmed whether he’s recovering at another local facility or his Franklin home.

Very little is known about the state of Gilbert’s health, though he did record a brief video shown only to Quicken Loans employees on August 1. Detroit News columnist Nolan Finley saw part of it and described the 57-year-old Gilbert as “strong and steady.”
