Bill Clinton Hospitalized in NYC, Receives Heart Stents
Former President Bill Clinton was hospitalized today in New York City.
Said Clinton's Counselor Douglas Band in a statement: "Today President Bill Clinton was admitted to the Columbia Campus of New York Presbyterian Hospital after feeling discomfort in his chest. Following a visit to his cardiologist, he underwent a procedure to place two stents in one of his coronary arteries. President Clinton is in good spirits, and will continue to focus on the work of his Foundation and Haiti's relief and long-term recovery efforts. In 2004, President Clinton underwent a successful quadruple bypass operation to free four blocked arteries."
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was said to be traveling to NYC from Washington this afternoon. Chelsea Clinton was at the hospital with her father, CNN reported.
