Harvey Weinstein is "likely" to remain under his doctor's care at Manhattan's Bellevue Hospital until his sentencing on March 11, his attorney confirmed.

The disgraced movie mogul was rushed to the medical center on February, 24, while en route to Rikers Island prison after being found guilty of sexual assault and rape.

Weinstein, 67, complained of chest pain and shortness of breath shortly after hearing the split verdicts in a Manhattan courtroom.

Upon his arrival at the hospital, Weinstein was treated for heart palpitations and high blood pressure.

Weinstein's wife Georgina Chapman (pictured with Weinstein in 2014) has not been to the hospital to visit him with his 2 youngest children. But he speaks to all of his children by phone.

In response to numerous media inquiries about Weinstein's discharge date from the hospital, Arthur Aidala, an attorney on Weinstein's legal team, told Variety that Weinstein will "likely" stay there until his court date next week.

Aidala denies reports that Weinstein is malingering or faking his illness to avoid being transferred to jail.

"(He's) likely there 'til sentencing on March 11. The treating doctors think that's where he should be - it's that simple," he said.

"It's no secret he was under several doctors' care over the course of the last couple of months. The doctors at Bellevue, up until today, at least, have determined that he's not ready to go to a non-medical facility. It's totally up to the medical team to make that determination. Obviously, nobody wants anything to happen to Mr. Weinstein because of his health."

Aidala added that the Department of Corrections is "making their own determinations" about Weinstein.

Meanwhile, Weinstein is getting the VIP treatment on the hospital's prison ward. There are no guards posted outside his room, and he has free run of the ward.

Recently, photos surfaced showing Weinstein in a media room watching television while relaxing on a sofa. His wheelchair was next to him. A source said Weinstein is ambulatory and he pushes his wheelchair like a walker.
