Fresno City Manager Mark Scott is recovering after suffering a mild heart attack two weeks ago, Mayor Ashley Swearengin announced Monday afternoon.
Swearengin emailed the following message to city employees Monday:
As you may be aware, City Manager Mark Scott has been out of the office for the past two weeks dealing with health issues. I would like to provide you with an update about Mark's health status.
Mark suffered a mild heart attack two weeks ago and has been making a steady recovery at home. Fortunately, doctors at Saint Agnes Medical Center were able to quickly diagnose Mark when he arrived at the hospital and take the appropriate steps that prevented more serious issues. Because of the doctors' extraordinary care, Mark was able to return home the next day, where he has been focused on doing what he needs to do to recover.
Over the weekend, Mark told me that he is feeling better every day. His doctors expect him to make a full recovery, and Mark will return to the office when he receives clearance from his doctors, potentially next week.
Until Mark's return, Assistant City Managers Bruce Rudd and Renena Smith will continue to be in charge of the day-to-day operations of the City. Please provide them with your full support as we all continue our work to move Fresno forward.
