Dr. Alpesh N., Executive Director of the University of California Irvine Health Medicine Department. Amin, who was overseeing Clinton’s medical team, issued a statement following Clinton’s release.

“President Clinton was discharged from UC Irvine Medical Center today. His fever and white blood cell count have returned to normal, and he will return to New York to complete a course of antibiotics,” Amin wrote. “On behalf of everyone at UC Irvine Medical Center, we were honored to have treated her and we will continue to monitor her progress.”

Clinton was admitted to UC Irvine Medical Center’s intensive care unit last week for a urinary tract infection that had spread to her bloodstream. The former president, who was in good spirits throughout his treatment, was treated in the ICU for privacy and security, not because he needed intensive care, according to his doctors.

Clinton, 75, felt fatigued on Tuesday and was hospitalized after tests, according to his office. A Clinton spokeswoman told Granthshala that the former president was in California for a private event for his foundation, and Hillary Clinton went to the event Thursday evening to “represent the two” and then accompanied him to the hospital.

As of Saturday, Clinton “continued to make excellent progress,” according to her spokeswoman Angel Ureena, and remained in the hospital overnight to receive further IV antibiotics.

According to a source familiar with the situation, the kind of antibiotic needed to treat Clinton’s type of infection had to be administered via IV, not orally, which is why he remained in the hospital.

The former president’s doctors said urinary infections are very common in older people, and they are easily treated, although they can quickly spread into the bloodstream.

The 42nd president has faced other health challenges in the past. He had quadruple bypass heart surgery in 2004 and two stents were inserted to open an artery in 2010.
