King Abdullah gets royal treatment, whole VIP wing at New York hospital

King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia booked the entire VIP wing at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center for himself, the New York Post reports. The 86-year-old king was recovering from surgery for a blood clot and a slipped disc. Patients who thought they deserved VIP treatment will have to stay in more plebeian treatment rooms. According to the Post, Abdullah is a generous donor to the hospital. One can only hope he won't take up long-term residence at the hospital like that 104-year-old heiress, who lived 10 years (and counting) at Beth Israel. Article
