Washington - Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton left the New York hospital where she had been receiving treatment for a blood clot on Wednesday afternoon.
Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines says her doctors advised her that she has been making progress on all fronts and are confident she will make a full recovery.
He says Clinton is appreciative of the excellent care she received at New York-Presbyterian Hospital and is eager to get back to work. A date for her return to the State Department has not been set.
Her husband, former President Bill Clinton, daughter, Chelsea, and an unidentified aide were by her side, according to media reports.
Earlier Wednesday, Clinton had been speaking with staff and reviewing paperwork, the State Department said.
Doctors at that time were continuing to monitor Clinton's progress and her response to blood thinners intended to dissolve the clot.
