U.S. Senator John Kerry, then nominee for U.S. Secretary of State, left, and his wife Teresa Heinz Kerry, chairman of Heinz Family Philanthropies, listen during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee nomination hearing in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 24, 2013.

(Corrects spelling of spokesman’s name in second paragraph.)

Teresa Heinz Kerry was taken by ambulance today to Nantucket Cottage Hospital in Massachusetts, according to a spokesman for her husband, Secretary of State John Kerry.

“Once doctors had stabilized her condition, she was transferred to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston,” the spokesman, Glen Johnson, said in an e-mailed statement. He said Secretary Kerry accompanied his wife throughout.

Johnson didn’t provide any information on her ailment or condition, saying the family asked for privacy. The Associated Press reported earlier that Heinz Kerry was in critical but stable condition.
