"Following the results of a check-up at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, as well as consultations with doctors, His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew will be admitted to the hospital later this afternoon for an angiogram that will evaluate the need for stent placement," the statement reads.
Details regarding the state of health of the patriarch are not specified. As it was reported, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew arrived in the United States in late October to lead the All-Orthodox Chorostasia in St. Sophia Cathedral in Washington, DC, and to introduce newly appointed senators from Orthodoxy and Hellenism. Immediately upon arrival, he felt unwell and was hospitalized in Washington for a short time. In general, Bartholomew's visit to the United States was scheduled for November 3.
