The chief of the Lafayette Fire Department recently transitioned into a rehabilitation facility 15 days after arriving at Hennepin County Medical Center on June 8. Scott VanDeest arrived at the hospital after he was found to have a brain bleed at the New Ulm Medical Center on the evening of June 8. Family members wrote on VanDeest’s CaringBridge page Tuesday that VanDeest was discharged from HCMC and was checked into the Miland E. Knapp Rehabilitation Center in Minneapolis. The CaringBridge journal says VanDeest continues to experience occasional memory loss and confusion, in addition to not yet regaining full strength on the left side of his body.
