ABC News reports former President Bill Clinton has been hospitalized in New York.

Emily Friedman reports Clinton was transported to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan for a condition related to his heart.

ABC News' chief political correspondent George Stephanopoulos reported that sources said he was taken to the hospital "likely for a stent procedure." Sources on Capitol Hill tell ABC News that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was seen leaving the Oval Office a short time ago and did not seem "too concerned" or "in a rush."

CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller tweets, "Clinton is said to be undergoing examination by his heart surgeon Dr. Craig Smith."

The former president had quadruple heart bypass surgery in 2004.
