Chicago’s former Mayor Richard M. Daley, 71, has been released for Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. Daley was in the hospital for eight days before being released on Saturday at approximately noon, according to an ABC report on Saturday.

Daley was in the hospital for tests which were designed to give reasons for his feeling disoriented and ill during a business trip to Phoenix, Arizona the week before last. When he left the hospital on Saturday, he left without assistance but was accompanied by family members.

Sheila Galloro, a spokesperson for Northwestern Memorial Hospital, could not give media any details on Daley’s health conditions. However, Jackie Heard, the mayor’s spokesperson, said that the family may be releasing more information regarding the former mayor’s health conditions later.

Daley was admitted to the intensive care unit at the hospital on Jan. 31 after being taken to the hospital by ambulance from the airport – as soon as his plane landed in Chicago from his flight from Arizona where he had attended business conference in Scottsdale.
