Dangerous Blood Clots Threaten Dole’s Life
November 01,1945


Dole was transferred to Percy Jones Hospital in Battle Creek, Michigan, where he developed a dangerous blood clot. His condition was so severe that Dole's doctors penned his parents regarding the health of their son. In 2003, Percy Jones Hospital was renamed Hart-Dole-Inouye Center for Senators Dole, Hart, and Inouye. All three Senators were patients there during the 1940s.
