LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP) — Southern Baptist Theological Seminary president R. Albert Mohler Jr., was admitted overnight to a Louisville-area hospital due to “bilateral pulmonary emboli (blood clots in both lungs)” according to a statement released Saturday morning (April 15).
The statement said Mohler “is receiving excellent care and is responding well to treatment” and “looks forward to returning to a full schedule including The Briefing in coming days.”
Mohler has led the seminary since 1993 and has presided over tremendous growth at the seminary as well as the launch of a successful undergraduate arm—Boyce College.
Mohler experienced a similar event in January 2007. Following a successful surgery to remove scar tissue from a 1980s operation, he developed pulmonary emboli and was admitted to the intensive care unit. Mohler made a full recovery.
This is a developing story and will be added to as more details come.
