Jason Grant was confirmed to have coronavirus at the hospital after suffering with a cough, aches and pains.
After time on Ward 117 and in the hospital’s Critical Care the 48-year-old was discharged and has now thanked NHS staff.
Jason, from Hanley, said: “I’m feeling loads better now and quite emotional. This has been the scariest moment of my life, but all the staff have been amazing. I’ve always admired the NHS.
“The staff are outstanding and when I was still in hospital I sat clapping along with everyone else from my bed. I just want to thank everyone.”
Jill Bogucki, Matron in Critical Care, said: “It’s great to see Jason leaving critical care feeling well. It has lifted the spirits of the staff and gives people hope that it is possible to recover.”
At least 190 people have now been discharged from the hospital after testing positive for the coronavirus.
