Former U.S. President Clinton leaves hospital, heads to New York

ORANGE, Ca., Oct 17 (Reuters) – Former U.S. President Bill Clinton walked out of a Southern California hospital on Sunday after being admitted last week for a urological infection and will continue receiving treatment in his home state of New York.

Asked how he was feeling as he exited, the 75-year-old former president gave reporters a thumbs up sign.

He left the University of California Irvine Medical Center accompanied by his wife, former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who waved before the pair departed in a motorcade of vehicles.

Dr. Alpesh Amin, who had been overseeing his care at the hospital, in a statement said Clinton was discharged after his fever and white blood cell count had normalized and would finish his course of antibiotics at home in New York.

We “will continue to monitor his progress,” Amin added in the statement released by Clinton’s spokesman.
