HOUSTON (Reuters) - Former President George H. W. Bush is being treated at Methodist Hospital in Houston, hospital spokeswoman Stephanie Asin said Thursday.

No other information was immediately available from the hospital, but Asin said she would provide more details later Thursday. A spokesman for Bush could not immediately be reached for comment.

The Houston Chronicle reported Thursday that Bush, 88, has a chronic cough and that his condition is not life-threatening. He has been in the hospital for a week and is expected to be released this weekend, the newspaper reported.

Bush, a Republican and the 41st president, took office in 1989 and lost his re-election bid in 1992 to Democrat Bill Clinton. The father of former President George W. Bush, he served as a congressman, U.N. ambassador, envoy to China, CIA director and was two-term vice president under Ronald Reagan.
