NANTUCKET, Mass. (AP) - A hospital spokesman says Teresa Heinz Kerry, the wife of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, is hospitalized in critical but stable condition in a Massachusetts hospital.
Hospital spokesman Noah Brown said Heinz Kerry was admitted into the emergency room of Nantucket Cottage Hospital after 3:30 p.m. Sunday.
He says the 74-year-old Heinz Kerry came to the facility in critical condition, and remains that way, although she has been stabilized.
Brown said he could not immediately release any more details about the patient's condition or her illness.
Nantucket Police Lt. Jerry Adams says a call requesting medical aid was received just after 3:30 p.m. for a home on Hulbert Avenue, and an ambulance was dispatched. Online records show the property is connected to Heinz Kerry's family.
Heinz Kerry is the widow of former U.S. Senator John Heinz, heir to the Heinz ketchup fortune.
