The Jackson family has praised the staff at the Albert Einstein Hospital for the ''fantastic care'' they provided Joe Jackson after he was taken seriously ill in Brazil.
Joe, 87, was rushed to the medical facility in Sao Paulo on July 26 after suffering a stroke and three heart attacks while on a trip to the South American country.
He has now made a recovery and was discharged from the facility last Monday (03.08.15) and the entire Jackson clan has thanked the trio of doctors and all the staff who helped saved his life.
Their statement read: ''On behalf of our father, Joe Jackson, we wish to thank the entire staff at Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein for the fantastic care he has received. In particular, thanks go to Dr. Marco Knobel, Dr. Alexandre Pierei and Dr. Jose Luis Guioto for their world class expertise and professionalism.''
The Jacksons also sent a message of gratitude to the people of Sao Paulo for all their well-wishes and prayers for Joe.
The statement added: ''We also send our love and appreciation to all the wonderful people of Sao Paulo and throughout Brazil for your amazing hospitality, support and prayers. We have been deeply touched by everyone in your beautiful nation and it made a huge difference in our father's quick recovery. Obrigado! The Jackson Family.''
Joe - who masterminded the meteoric rise of his sons' group The Jackson 5, led by the late Michael Jackson - returned to the US last Saturday (08.08.15) accompanied by his daughter Janet and son Jermaine who had both jetted out to be by his bedside.
Janet, 49, was preparing for her upcoming 'The Unbreakable World Tour', which kicks off later this month, when her dad was taken ill, leading to her ditching rehearsals to be with Joe.
Despite the severity of his condition, Joe - who has had a pacemaker fitted - is said to be doing well and is ''regaining his motor skills and has started to walk with assistance''.
