Universal Health Services, Inc.

Specifically, we experienced an increased wave of COVID patients in December 2020, which peaked in the first half of January 2021. The negative impact resulting from this elevated level of COVID volumes was primarily a function of accompanying declines in elective and scheduled procedures and both acute and behavioral patient days, along with increased expense pressures particularly on salaries and wages and shortages of clinical personnel.
Universal Health's (UHS) first-quarter results highlight uptick in revenues across both the company's segments, partly offset by escalating costs.
