Companies in this industry provide long-term skilled nursing care and social services in residential facilities. Major US companies include Brookdale Senior Living, Golden Living (owned by GGNSC Holdings), HCR Manor Care, and Kindred Healthcare (all based in the US), along with Bupa (UK), ExtendiCare Canada, Korian (France), and Orpea (France).

The US nursing homes and long-term care facilities industry includes about 80,000 establishments (single-location companies and branches of multi-location companies) with combined annual revenue of about $200 billion.
Demand for nursing care is linked to the demographics of the US population. The profitability of individual nursing facilities depends on efficient operations, as revenue per patient is largely controlled by the big government insurance programs, Medicare, and Medicaid. Large companies have some economies of scale in administration and purchasing, but small operators can compete effectively by offering better service. The US industry is fragmented: the 50 largest companies account for about 20 percent of revenue.
