NEW YORK (Reuters) - UnitedHealth Group Inc (UNH.N) Chief Executive David Wichmann said on Wednesday that a broad hold on elective procedures due to the new coronavirus pandemic has negatively impacted its Surgical Care Affiliates ambulatory surgery centers that provide outpatient joint, spine and cardiovascular procedures.
