ANCHORAGE (AP) -- The former archbishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Anchorage has been released from a San Francisco area hospital.
Francis T. Hurley, 75, was released Thursday from the Seton Medical Center in Daly City, Calif., an archdiocese spokesman said.
Hurley was taken to the hospital Feb. 24 after fainting during a private Mass at his sister's home in San Francisco. The fainting spell was caused by two partially blocked arteries.
Hurley underwent surgery in which a metal sleeve was put in each artery to normalize blood flow, Brother Charles McBride said.
