On June 1, 2020, in response to the COVID19 pandemic, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of Universal Health Services, Inc. (the “Company”) approved the following reductions to the base salaries of the Executive Officers of the Company: (i) Mr. Alan B.

Pember and Matthew J. Peterson will be reduced by 20% for the three-month period from June 1, 2020 through August 31, 2020.


In addition, the base salaries of all non-executive officers of the Company, and certain other members of the Company’s senior management team, will be reduced during the three-month period of June 1, 2020 through August 31, 2020, by various percentages ranging from 20% to 5%.
