Universal Health Services, King of Prussia, Pa., said the Securities and Exchange Commission's Philadelphia office has begun an informal inquiry into the dismissal of Kirk Gorman as CFO. Gorman, who plans to remain at UHS until a new CFO is chosen, was ousted from that job last week after the company's auditor, KPMG, expressed reservations about him. The reservations were related to Gorman's theoretical views about the split of duties and responsibilities between the CFO and the auditor. -- by Vince Galloro
