Scalise has been listed in either critical or serious condition in every other release by the hospital, the latest of which was sent on Saturday.
Signs acknowledging wounded Representative Steve Scalise are seen prior to the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., on June 15.
The money raised will also go to three Washington-based charities that the Congressional Baseball Game has supported in past years: The Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, The Washington Nationals Dream Foundation and The Washington Literacy Center. Steve Scalise, 51, of Louisiana is "beginning an extended period of healing and rehabilitation".
Doctors at MedStar Washington Hospital Center issued a statement Wednesday saying Rep. Steve Scalise has improved from critical to "fair" condition. He has undergone several surgeries and remains hospitalized.
The FBI says a gunman acted alone when he shot and wounded a top House Republican and four other people on a northern Virginia baseball field. Doctors said he had arrived at the hospital Wednesday at imminent risk of death.
Scalise, the No. 3 House Republican, arrived at the hospital via helicopter in shock, with intense internal bleeding, Sava said.
The gunman was identified as Hodgkinson, 66, from Belleville, Illinois, who volunteered for Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign.
Suffering relatively minor injuries were two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and House GOP aide Zack Barth.
