Former President George H.W. Bush Hospitalized In Maine
The 41st President has been hospitalized in Maine.
Several weeks after being released from a Houston area hospital in the wake of his wife’s funeral, former President George H.W. Bush has been admitted to a hospital in Maine not far from his Kennebunkport summer home:
Former President George H.W. Bush was hospitalized in Maine on Sunday, days after greeting well-wishers upon his arrival in Kennebunkport.
“President @GeorgeHWBush was taken to Southern Maine Health Care (@SMHCHealth) today after experiencing low blood pressure and fatigue,” Bush spokesman Jim McGrath wrote on Twitter.
The 41st president was hospitalized in Texas shortly after the death of his wife, Barbara Bush, in April. Bush was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital for a blood infection, just a day after attending his wife’s service.0>Bush will remain at Southern Maine Health Care in Biddeford for further monitoring for a few days, McGrath added.
Here is McGrath’s Tweet:
President @GeorgeHWBush was taken to Southern Maine Health Care (@SMHCHealth) today after experiencing low blood pressure and fatigue. He will likely remain there for a few days for observation. The former president is awake and alert, and not in any discomfort.

Bush arrived in Maine just about a week ago and is expected to spend the summer there, just as he has done every summer except for those during World War II when he was in the military. Hopefully, this hospital visit will be a short one.
