Jimmy Carter Hospitalized For Urinary Tract Infection

Former President Jimmy Carter was hospitalized in southern Georgia due to a urinary tract infection, a spokeswoman said Monday.

The 95-year-old ex-president was admitted to the Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus over the weekend, said Deanna Congileo, spokeswoman for The Carter Center, in a statement. He "feels better and hopes to return home soon," he added.

Carter suffered a fall a few months ago and had to operate to replace his hip.

Subsequently, on October 6, he hit his head in another fall and received 14 stitches, but he traveled to Nashville, Tennessee, to help build a house of the activist organization Habitat for Humanity. Later that month the pelvis fractured when he fell again and was briefly hospitalized.
