HOUSTON, Feb 22 (Reuters) - Jailed financier Allen Stanford has been moved to a prison hospital in Butner, North Carolina, for treatment to his addiction to anti-anxiety medication, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website.

The prison campus in Butner is also where Bernie Madoff is serving a 150-year sentence for leading the largest financial crime in history. (Reporting by Anna Driver, editing by Gerald E. McCormick)
