Bill Clinton Hospitalized? Yes, the former president of the USA was brought to the hospital today because of chest pains. Here is the statement that was released by Clinton's rep:
"Today President Bill Clinton was admitted to the Columbia Campus of NY Presbyterian hospital after feeling discomfort in his chest.
Following a visit to his cardiologist, he underwent a procedure to place 2 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."
The statement continues, "In 2004, President Clinton underwent a successful quadruple bypass operation to free four blocked arteries."
