NEW YORK — The Jackson family is thanking the doctors who have helped their ailing father, Joe Jackson, who is recovering from a stroke.

In a statement released Tuesday, the family said they wanted to thank the Albert Einstein Hospital and its doctors in Sao Paulo "for their world-class expertise and professionalism."
