Glenview Capital Partners bounced back in a big way last year, posting double-digit returns in its two hedge funds.
The $4.5 billion firm's flagship was up 29.31% through Dec. 21, 5.72% of that during those most recent 21 days, the New York Post reports. Its smaller Go opportunities fund is up about twice that, according to the tabloid.

Glenview's $3.6 billion flagship fell 12% in 2011.
