Since the Medicare debt and sale of losing venues
has been taken care of, management has come
back to black bottom lines. With the health care
industry and aging patients leading the wave of the
future, I have a sense of increasing revenue and profits
in the coming years. ijkaras

The problem with healthcare is that reimbursement never covers cost. If you simply increase the volume of patients with no increase in reimbursement, the net effect is more losses, not more revenue. That is the net effect of the new healthcare law. Add to that the dreadful managerial history at Tenet, and you'd be foolish to buy this stock.
