    The company spun off its hotel and lodging business to another corporate entity, Choice Hotels International, narrowing its focus to the special niche in the health care field. Vitalink Pharmacy Services, which caters to institutional customers, merged with TeamCare, a pharmacy subsidiary of GranCare Inc., a move that makes Vitalink the second-largest publicly traded institutional pharmacy firm with revenue of more than $420 million.

    Manor Care had revenue of $1.2 billion last year, compared with $1 billion in 1995. But its profit dropped slightly, to $85.9 million from $94.5 million, largely as a result of a one-time restructuring charge arising from the spinoff of the hotel properties.

    Stewart Bainum Jr., Manor Care's chairman, president and chief executive, said the company's principal growth thrust will be in the area of assisted living, especially for Alzheimer's disease patients. He said Manor Care opened Alzheimer's centers last year and expects to have 120 operating within four years. He said this will bring down the cost of caring for Alzheimer's patients by moving them from skilled nursing homes to special residential-type units more suited to their needs.
