Former chancellor Larry Vanderhoef stands in the Mondavi Center for Performing Arts on Thursday September 6, 2012 at UC Davis. The Mondavi Center for Performing Arts is approaching its ten-year anniversary. Vanderhoef was instramental in get the it built.

Chancellor Emeritus Larry Vanderhoef was released from UC Davis Medical Center on Friday, 27 days after suffering a stroke.

He said that he was grateful for the care that he received — and glad to be home.

“I’m eager to pick up where I left off in the office and to be back in my seat at the Mondavi Center and at our men’s and women’s basketball games,” Vanderhoef said in a statement released by UCD. “I’m getting better, day by day and bit by piece. I am definitely on my way back!”

He will continue outpatient rehabilitation, but he has “responded well to rehabilitation and has regained much of the strength he lost on the right side of his body,” said Cassie Spalding-Dias, UCD’s director of inpatient therapy, in the news release.

“Rehabilitation is an ongoing process, and we expect him to improve as his body continues to heal over the next year,” she said.

Vanderhoef, who is 71, suffered an ischemic stroke, which occurs when a blockage stops the flow of blood to the brain. It is the most frequent cause of stroke,  responsible for about 80 percent of all strokes in the United States. Some 800,000 strokes occur in the United States each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Vanderhoef stepped down as chancellor in August 2009 after more than 15 years in office.
