Former President Gerald Ford Hospitalized, Again


Former President Gerald Ford was admitted Saturday to Eisenhower Medical Center and has been undergoing treatment for pneumonia. This is the same hospital where he was hospitalized about one month ago. Of course at the age of 92 any illness needs to be taken extremely serious.

“Based on his age it is prudent for his initial course of treatment — IV antibiotics — to be done at the hospital,” Circle told The Associated Press.

Ford was expected to be released from the hospital Wednesday or Thursday, she said.

“He’s doing very well,” she said.

Asked if the pneumonia was the result of any lingering effects from the cold, Circle said, “I don’t think so.”

Ford suffered two small strokes five years ago and spent about a week in a hospital.
