Hamilton County Coroner's condition improving

The Hamilton County Coroner is showing signs of improvement after being hospitalized due to a fall.

Anant Bhati was hospitalized Wednesday for head trauma. He was admitted to Good Samaritan Hospital.

Since his admission, Dr. Bhati has shown signs of improvement and doctors are optimistic for his full recovery.

Dr. Bhati is the former Director of Gynecology for Good Samaritan Hospital. He was named county coroner when Dr. O'dell Owens stepped down after he was named President at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College.

The Bhati family said in a statement that they are grateful to the Cincinnati community for the outpouring of well-wishes.
