Net income, first quarter, 2008: $133M

Net income, annual for 2007: $119M

11% annual growth rate predicted over 5-year term.

I don't like [HMA] debt burden, but in the world of CAPS, I'll take a chance and let it ride because hospitals generally stay in business over the long run. Will also be interesting to see how Obamacare impacts company margins.

They focus on the burbs, which is where a lot of the baby boomers are, and they're putting up crushing numbers this year:

Net income, first quarter, 2008: $133M

Net income, annual for 2007: $119M

They're finally figuring out how to make money again.
