Weinstein, 67, had a heart procedure Wednesday during which doctors inserted a stent, publicist Juda Engelmayer told CNN.
The Department of Corrections is “moving him as we speak to the Rikers infirmary unit,” Engelmayer said Thursday afternoon.
Rikers is New York City’s main jail complex.
It’s the same facility where Weinstein’s attorneys requested he be incarcerated, following his conviction.
The disgraced movie mogul had been in a Department of Corrections facility at Bellevue since his conviction on February 24.
