Richard Simmons Speaks Out After Recent Hospitalization, Thanks 'Wonderful Doctors' for Taking Care of Him

The 64-year-old fitness guru took to his Facebook page to thank the hospital staff at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for taking care of him.

“Hope you’re having a beautiful Sunday,” Richard wrote. “I wanted to take a moment to send a big thank you to the wonderful doctors, nurses and staff at Cedars Sinai Medical Center during my short stay there this week. They make you feel good even though you’re in the hospital for feeling bad.”

Richard has not been seen in public since February 2014 and has faced tons of rumors over the years concerning his whereabouts. Some of the rumors include that he’s transitioning, that he’s being held hostage, and more.

Last week, Richard checked into the hospital after suffering stomach issues before getting discharged on Saturday.

“Another shout out goes to the wonderful men and women of the Los Angeles Police Dept. They were so helpful and kind as I returned home. Let’s take a minute and all be thankful for medical professionals, police, firefighters and our brave military forces here and around the world. They risk so much every day to make us well and keep us protected. God Bless all of them,” Richard added.
