Universal Health Services, Inc. Reports Significant Increases in 2008 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Earnings from Continuing Operations Per Diluted Share and Reports 2009 Guidance
Date:2/26/2009

liquidation:

For the years of 1998 through 2001, most of our subsidiaries were covered under commercial insurance policies with PHICO, a Pennsylvania based insurance company that was placed into liquidation in February, 2002. In January, 2009, a court order from the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania was executed in connection with the partial liquidation of the PHICO estate. As a result, during the fourth quarter of 2008, based upon our share of the undisputed and resolved claims made against the PHICO estate as of a specified date and as approved by the liquidator to the court, we recorded a $10 million reduction to our professional and general liability self-insured claims expense.

Divestitures of assets and businesses:

During the fourth quarter of 2008, we completed the sale of a 125-bed acute care hospital located in Lansdale, Pennsylvania. This transaction resulted in a pre-tax gain of approximately $13 million which is included in our financial results for the three and twelve-month periods ended December 31, 2008. In addition, included in our financial results for the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2008 is a combined pre-tax gain of $8 million from the sale of our ownership interest in a third-party provider of supply chain services, the sale our ownership interest in an outpatient surgery center and the sale of certain other real property assets.

Resignation of John F. Williams, M.D., Ed.D. from Our Board of Directors:

John F. Williams, M.D. has notified us that he intends to resign from our Board of Directors effective as of February 28, 2009. We thank Dr. Williams for his years of dedicated service to our Company and wish him well in his future endeavors.
