Former President Bill Clinton was hospitalized on Tuesday evening with a non-Covid related infection, according to his spokesman.
Clinton’s spokesman Angel Urena said late Tuesday that the former president was admitted to UC Irvine Medical Center in California.
“He is on the mend, in good spirits, and is incredibly thankful to the doctors, nurses and staff providing him with excellent care,” Urena said in a statement.
Clinton’s doctors said in a joint statement that he was admitted to the hospital for “close monitoring” and administered IV antibiotics and fluids.
“He remains at the hospital for continuous monitoring,” his doctors Alpesh Amin and Lisa Bardack said. “After two days of treatment, his white blood cell count is trending down and he is responding to antibiotics well.”
