CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago's retired Cardinal Francis George has been admitted to the hospital for evaluation after he stopped treatment for kidney cancer more than a month ago.

The Archdiocese of Chicago said Tuesday morning that George was admitted to Loyola University Medical Center on Sunday. Archdiocese officials say he'll stay there several days while tests are done. The statement didn't say what prompted George to be admitted to the hospital.
