Governor Branstad Released from Hospital
DES MOINES, Iowa - Governor Terry Branstad has been released from the hospital after being hospitalized overnight with flu-like symptoms. The governor fell ill during a ribbon-cutting event at DuPont Pioneer in Johnston Monday. “Today, at approximately 9 a.m., Governor Terry Branstad was discharged from the hospital in good condition and he is now resting comfortably at Terrace Hill," Dr. Kevin Cunningham, the governor's personal physician, said in a press release Tuesday. "After seeing him both Monday evening and this morning, and personally reviewing his medical tests and records, it’s my opinion as a medical professional that the incident was caused by a mild flu and dehydration. We have ruled out other contributing factors, including cardiac issues and stroke. Governor Branstad will be able to resume a normal work schedule in the near future.”
