Former President Jimmy Carter was released from a hospital Wednesday after being treated for a urinary tract infection. Carter, 95, was discharged from Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Carter Center spokeswoman Deanna Congileo said.
“He said he looks forward to further rest and recovery at home in Plains, Georgia,” she said.
He has overcome health challenges in recent years.
He was diagnosed with melanoma in 2015, announcing the cancer had spread to other parts of his body. After partial removal of his liver, treatment for brain lesions, radiation and immunotherapy, he said he was cancer-free. A fall last spring required hip replacement surgery.
