Statement from Senator Van Hollen

Today, U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) released the following statement:

“This weekend, I was admitted to George Washington University Hospital after experiencing lightheadedness and acute neck pain while I was delivering a speech in Western Maryland. At the recommendation of the Attending Physician, I sought medical attention upon my return home. Earlier today, an angiogram indicated that I had experienced a minor stroke in the form of a small venous tear at the back of my head.  Fortunately, I have been informed that there are no long-term effects or damage as a result of this incident, but my doctors have advised that out of an abundance of caution I remain under observation for a few days.  I look forward to returning to work in the Senate later this week and thank the medical team for their excellent care.”
