President Jimmy Carter May 2019

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was released from a Georgia hospital on Thursday, after he broke his hip in a fall on Monday.

A statement released Thursday by Carter’s Atlanta-based nonprofit organization, The Carter Center, said:

“President Carter was released from Phoebe Sumter Medical Center today and will continue to recuperate at home. He will undergo physical therapy, as part of his recovery from hip replacement surgery. President Carter plans to teach Sunday school at Maranatha Baptist Church this weekend.

In addition, yesterday, former First Lady Rosalynn Carter felt faint and was admitted overnight to the hospital for observation and testing. She left the hospital with President Carter this morning.

Both President and Mrs. Carter extend their thanks to the many people who sent well wishes the past few days.”
