By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Health Care Services industry with the lowest price to earnings (P/E) ratios. P/E is an important valuation tool when comparing companies in the same industry. A higher P/E ratio means that investors are paying more for each unit of net income, so the stock is more expensive compared to one with a lower P/E ratio.

Cross Country He ranks lowest with a a P/E ratio of 3.72. Mednax Inc is next with a a P/E ratio of 8.20. Cvs Health Corp ranks third lowest with a a P/E ratio of 11.40.

Davita Inc follows with a a P/E ratio of 14.93, and Express Scripts rounds out the bottom five with a a P/E ratio of 15.93.
