The Houston Chronicle and KHOU-TV reported today that Bush chief of staff Jean Becker says the 41st president was recently admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital after becoming ill.
Becker did not specify the reason the 92-year-old was hospitalised. Both media outlets say his office expects him to go home in a couple of days. Becker did not immediately return email or telephone calls to her office from The Associated Press.
Bush was hospitalised in Maine in 2015 after falling at his summer home and breaking a bone in his neck. He served as US president from 1989 to 1993.
