“Secretary Clinton was discharged from the hospital this evening.  Her medical team advised her that she is making good progress on all fronts, and they are confident she will make a full recovery,” said Philippe Reines, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, adding, “She’s eager to get back to the office.”

Clinton was earlier seen leaving New York-Presbyterian Hospital with her husband and daughter but the state department said at the time she had not been discharged, but was merely traveling to another hospital building on the campus for further tests.
