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.
