President Bill Clinton Hospitalized in New York - Chest Pains
Former President Bill Clinton has been hospitalized in the Columbian Presbytarian Hospital in New York City.
President Clinton experienced chest pains and after visiting his cardiologist underwent a procedure, which placed two stents into his chest. He is said to be in good spirits.
Apparently Clinton had also been suffering from a cold. He has worked extremely hard lately visiting Haiti and working hand in hand with President GW Bush to promote donations for Haiti.
President Clinton received Heart By-pass surgery in 2004.
Bush 41 has been in touch with Bill Clinton and both he and Barbara wish Bill Clinton well.
President Obama talked to Bill Clinton earlier and told him to get back to work soon as Haiti needs him. Bill Clinton told President Obama that he felt well.
Hillary Clinton is now at Bill Clinton's bedside along with their daughter Chelsea.
"Today President Bill Clinton was admitted to the Columbia Campus of New York Presbyterian Hospital after feeling discomfort in his chest," spokesman Doug Band said in a statement. "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," said the spokesman.
