LOS ANGELES (CNN) -- Entertainer Frank Sinatra was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Tuesday morning for a series of tests, his spokeswoman has confirmed.

"Mr. Sinatra is at Cedars where he is undergoing testing," Susan Reynolds said. "In respect of Mr. Sinatra's personal request for privacy, there will be no further comment."

The ambulance that carried him to Cedars-Sinai traveled the eight miles to the hospital without lights and siren.

"It's a non-emergency. He's fine. He's here for tests," hospital spokeswoman Charlie Lahaie said.

Sinatra, 82, suffered a heart attack over a year ago.

Reynolds confirmed that Sinatra was accompanied to the hospital by his wife, Barbara Sinatra. The spokeswoman could not say how long Sinatra was expected to be hospitalized.

Just a few weeks ago, the legendary singer was hospitalized at the Los Angeles hospital for an overnight stay, that time for a routine checkup.
