Joan Rivers has left the Intensive Care Unit, but the famed comedienne is still on life support.

According to E! Online, Melissa Rivers released a statement saying that her mother is comfortable in a private room at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York.

“My mother has been moved out of intensive care and into a private room where she is being kept comfortable,” Melissa Rivers said in a statement Wednesday. “Thank you for your continued support.”

Joan, 81, went into cardiac and respiratory arrest during throat surgery last week. The clinic where the surgery was being performed, Yorkville Endoscopy, is now under review by the state’s Department of Health.

TMZ reports:

Sources tell us the state’s Dept. of Health has contacted the clinic — Yorkville Endoscopy — twice since last Thursday … when Rivers was getting an outpatient procedure to repair her vocal cords.

State health officials tell TMZ they are “reviewing the matter” … but have NOT launched an official investigation. We’re told the review could take weeks or even months. At this point, officials are only looking at the clinic as a whole — not specifically the doctor who performed the procedure.

Additional reports claim the legendary star is in a larger suite surrounded by flowers and the support of her family.
