Catholic World News - August 30, 2011

Archbishop George Niederauer of San Francisco underwent cardiac bypass surgery on August 29, after being hospitalized the previous day because of chest pains.

The archbishop—who was on vacation when he was taken ill—was taken to the hospital by his friend and predecessor, Cardinal William Levada, who is now the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Archbishop Niederauer was reported in satisfactory condition after the double-bypass surgery.
