Doctors to decide when Kim can leave hospital

  • Mayor Harry Kim

Doctors will decide today when Mayor Harry Kim will be able to leave the hospital, according to his spokeswoman.

Kim was taken to Hilo Medical Center early Saturday after suffering a mild heart attack.

That was Kim’s sixth heart attack, and his second in little more than a month after suffering one in late April.

Between Kim’s fifth and sixth heart attacks, the 78-year-old mayor was diagnosed with walking pneumonia in early May. On Friday, Kim was diagnosed with a relapse of pneumonia at the hospital but was released later that day with orders to rest.
