Tenet Healthcare (NYSE:THC) owns and operates hospitals, surgery centers and other medical facilities across the U.S. While many medical stocks are facing uncertainty thanks to the Affordable Care Act (also known as “Obamacare” to some), one of the businesses sure to benefit is the hospital industry as coverage expands and more patients start to use services.
