Former U.S. President Bill Clinton and former first lady and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton thank members of the medical staff as he is released from the University of California Irvine Medical Center in Orange, California, Sunday, October 17.
Bill Clinton was released Sunday from the Southern California hospital where he had been treated for an infection.
The former president was released around 8 a.m. from the University of California Irvine Medical Center.
Clinton, 75, was admitted Tuesday to the hospital southeast of Los Angeles with an infection unrelated to COVID-19, officials said.
Clinton spokesman Angel Ureña had said Saturday that Clinton would remain hospitalized one more night to receive further intravenous antibiotics. But all health indicators were “trending in the right direction,” Ureña said.
“President Clinton has continued to make excellent progress over the past 24 hours,” Ureña said.
