The Federal Reserve did its part this week to boost hospital stocks by again not raising interest rates.

Now the investor-owned hospital companies will have to prove with their earnings whether it’s safe for investors to give them another look.

Community Health Systems and Tenet Healthcare Corp. are scheduled to release their first-quarter earnings after markets close Monday. HCA Holdings, the only hospital chain bigger than CHS and Tenet by revenue, reports earnings Tuesday.
