Caldwell Mayor Garret Nancolas has been released from a Boise hospital.

“Many of you are aware that I have recently undergone a scheduled surgery and had follow-up medical care at West Valley Medical Center in Caldwell and St. Alphonsus Medical Center in Boise. Although an unexpected complication prolonged my treatment, I have been released to go home and expect a complete recovery in the next several weeks,” Nancolas said Tuesday in a press release.

Nancolas had scheduled surgery on July 9 in Caldwell at West Valley Medical Center. He was then transferred to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise.

The city is not releasing details about Nancolas’ surgery or medical condition.

“I would like to thank the medical staff at both facilities for their professionalism, care and attention during my recovery. A special thanks goes to the Julie Taylor, CEO at West Valley Medical Center, for the kind and compassionate expressions she provided to my family. Last but not least, I would like to convey my sincere appreciation to the many individuals who have expressed their love and concern for my recovery. Such acts of kindness reaffirm to me how great a community Caldwell truly is,” said Nancolas in his statement.
