The Thai rescue effort has been assisted by experts from around the world, and the death of a former Thai Navy SEAL diver who ran out of oxygen in the cave on Friday underscored the dangers of the mission.
Each of the rescued boys has been guided through the dark winding cave by a pair of divers.
One by one, the last of the remaining four boys were carried to ambulances that whisked them to evacuation helicopters and finally, on to the hospital.
He said rescuers would resume an operation to retrieve a remaining five people in about 20 hours' time.
Authorities have not confirmed the identity of the rescued boys. Tuesday's operation began just after 10am.
The children, ranging between the ages of 11 to 16, had been stuck over two miles inside the cave system in Chiang Rai after a sudden downpour prevented them from making an escape.
"They are all in good spirits and happy to be out", Jedsada Chokdamrongsuk, permanent secretary of the public health ministry, told reporters. Their rescue was followed a few hours later by the safe return of a medic and three SEAL divers who had stayed for days with the boys in their cramped, dry refuge.
The eight boys rescued after being trapped for more than two weeks were described as generally healthy.
While the boys are in good health, two may have mild lung infection.
Family members have seen at least some of the boys from behind a glass isolation barrier, and Jesada said doctors may let the boys walk around their beds on Tuesday.
Rescuers in Thailand are racing against predicted monsoon rains - that could kick up in the middle of this week - to free the remaining boys still trapped in a flooded cave. The first four were rescued on the first day of the operation on Sunday. They were found a week ago, but the heavy rains that flooded parts of the twisting array of tunnels have made their rescue treacherous.
As of 2:40 p.m. local time, the rescue has been underway for over 4 hours and nobody has been seen yet leaving the cave. He was taken by helicopter and then ambulance to the hospital in Chiang Rai were the first four boys, who were rescued on Sunday, are now being held in quarantine as they undergo tests.
