Mayor Menino Is Hospitalized Again

Published December 2, 2010

Mayor Thomas Menino is in the hospital for the 10th time since taking office in 1993, the Globe reports:

Menino returned to Brigham and Women’s Hospital at about 6 p.m. and has remained there today, said the spokeswoman, Dot Joyce. He spent three days in the hospital over Thanksgiving after he contracted a bacterial infection in his left elbow on a trip to Italy.

“The infection is clearing up nicely,” Joyce said. “He’s just having a negative reaction to the medication.”

Menino turns 69 68 later this month.
