Actor Patrick Swayze has been released from a hospital, one week after checking himself in with pneumonia.

Publicist Annett Wolf says Swayze left the hospital and is resting at home. She would not comment further on his condition. The news was first reported in a statement Wolf released Friday to People magazine.

Swayze, who has had a yearlong battle with pancreatic cancer, checked himself into a hospital Jan. 9 for observation after contracting pneumonia.
