(the "Land");

     (b)  all buildings, structures, Fixtures (as hereinafter
defined) and other improvements of every kind including, but not
limited to, alleyways and connecting tunnels, sidewalks, utility
pipes, conduits and lines, and parking areas and roadways
appurtenant to such buildings and structures presently or hereafter
situated upon the Land (collectively, the "Leased Improvements");

     (c)  all easements, rights and appurtenances of every nature
and description now or hereafter relating to or benefitting any or
all of the Land and the Leased Improvements;

     (d)  all equipment, machinery, building fixtures, and other
items of property (whether realty, personalty or mixed), including
all components thereof, now or hereafter located in, on or used in
connection with, and permanently affixed to or incorporated into
the Leased Improvements, including, without limitation, all

all of which, to the greatest extent permitted by law, are hereby
deemed by the parties hereto to constitute real estate, together
with all replacements, modifications, alterations and additions

category of Tangible Personal Property (as hereinafter defined) which are not
permanently affixed to or incorporated in the Leased Property (collectively, 
the "Fixtures"); and

     (e)  Lessor's Personal Property.

     The Leased Property is leased in its present condition, AS IS,
without representation or warranty of any kind, express or implied,
by Lessor and subject to:  (i) the rights of parties in possession;
(ii) the existing state of title including all covenants,
conditions, Liens (as hereinafter defined) and other matters of
record (including, without limitation, the matters set forth in
EXHIBIT B); (iii) all applicable laws; and (iv) all matters,
whether or not of a similar nature, which would be disclosed by an
inspection of the Leased Property or by an accurate survey thereof.

     1.2   Term.  The term of this Lease shall consist of:  the
"Fixed Term", which shall commence on June 24, 1996 (the "Fixed
Term Commencement Date") and end on June 23, 2009 (the "Fixed Term
Expiration Date"); provided, however that this Lease may be sooner
terminated as hereinafter provided.  In addition, Lessee shall have
the options to extend the Term (as hereinafter defined) as provided
for in Section 1.3.

     1.3  Extended Terms.  Provided that this Lease has not been
previously terminated, and so long as no Lease Default (as

is hereby granted the right to extend the Fixed Term of this Lease
for two (2) additional periods (collectively, the "Extended Terms")
as follows:  two (2) successive five (5) year periods for a maximum
Term, if all such options are exercised, which ends on June 23,
2019.  Lessee's extension rights shall be exercised by Lessee by
giving written notice to Lessor of each such extension at least one
hundred eighty (180) days, but not more than three hundred sixty
(360) days, prior to the termination of the Fixed Term or then
current Extended Term.  Lessee may not exercise its option for more
than one Extended Term at a time.  During each effective Extended

in full force and effect, except that the Base Rent (as hereinafter
defined) for each such Extended Term shall be adjusted as set forth
in Section 3.1.3.
     Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein,
Lessee's rights to extend the Fixed Term granted in this Section 1.3 are 
subject to the further condition that concurrently
with the exercise of any extension option hereunder, Lessee shall
have exercised its option to extend the terms of all of the Related
Leases in accordance with the provisions of the Agreement Regarding
Related Transactions and the provisions of Section 1.3 of each of
the Related Leases.  For the purposes of this Section 1.3, the

ARTICLE 3

RENT

3.1  Rent for Land, Leased Improvements, Related Rights and
Fixtures.  Lessee will pay to Lessor, in lawful money of the United
States of America, at Lessor's address set forth herein or at such
other place or to such other Person as Lessor from time to time may
designate in writing, rent for the Leased Property, as follows.

3.1.1  Base Rent.  (a) Pre-Conversion Base Rent.  From and after
the Commencement Date and until the Conversion Date, Lessee shall
pay, commencing on July 1, 1996, and on the first day of each
calendar month thereafter and on the Conversion Date, a base rent
(the "Pre-Conversion Base Rent") in arrears which is equal to the
product of (i) the Original Meditrust Investment plus so much of
the Project Funds as Lessor has advanced under the Leasehold
Improvement Agreement from time to time multiplied by (ii) the Pre-Conversion
Rent Adjustment Rate in effect from time to time, calculated on a daily basis.

(b) Post-Conversion Base Rent.  From and after the Conversion Date,
Lessee shall pay a base rent (the "Post-Conversion Base Rent") per
annum which is equal to the product of (i) the Original Meditrust
Investment plus the aggregate amount of the Project Funds as Lessor
has advanced under the Leasehold Improvement Agreement as of the
Conversion Date plus Subsequent Investments multiplied by (ii) the
Rent Adjustment Rate which is in effect or calculated on the
Conversion Date, payable in advance in equal, consecutive monthly
installments due on the first day of each calendar month; provided,
however, that on the Conversion Date, Lessee shall pay to Lessor
the proportionate share of the Post-Conversion Base Rent due for
the period from (and including) such date through the end of the
calendar month during which such
date occurred.

3.1.2  Increase to Post-Conversion Base Rent.  Commencing on the
first anniversary of the Conversion Date and on each anniversary of
the Conversion Date thereafter during the Term (each such date
shall be referred to herein as a "Rent Adjustment Date"), the Post-Conversion
Base Rent shall be increased so as to equal the lesser
of (a) the Maximum Rent Adjustment, or (b) an amount determined by
multiplying the Post-Conversion Base Rent then in
effect times a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the CPI
Index on the applicable Rent Adjustment Date and the denominator of
which shall be the CPI Index on the preceding Rent Adjustment Date
(or on the Conversion Date in the case of the first Rent Adjustment
Date).

If, for any Lease Year or any portion thereof, the Post-Conversion
Base Rent is adjusted in accordance with clause (b) above, then the
difference between the Post-Conversion Base Rent for such Lease
Year, and the Post-Conversion Base Rent for such Lease Year if
adjusted in accordance with clause (a) above shall be referred to
herein as the "Rent Shortfall."  If, for any Lease Year, the Post-
Conversion Base Rent is adjusted in accordance with clause (a),
then the difference between the Post-Conversion Base Rent for such
Lease Year and the Post-Conversion Base Rent for such Lease Year if
adjusted in accordance with clause (b), shall be referred to herein
as the "Rent Surplus".

	In the event there is a Rent Shortfall for any Lease Year,
Lessee shall also pay to Lessor, as part of the Post-Conversion
Base Rent due hereunder, an amount equal to such Rent Shortfall,
plus any Rent Shortfall in any previous Lease Years, up to an
amount equal to the Rent Surplus, if any, for the then current
Lease Year, less any prior payments on account of a Rent Shortfall.

As used herein, the "Maximum Rent Adjustment" shall be the Post-Conversion
Base Rent in any applicable year, which would result
solely by multiplying, in each year, on the Rent Adjustment Date,
the Post-Conversion Base Rent then in effect (as adjusted pursuant
to this Section 3.1.2 only) by 1.02%.  

As used herein, the "CPI Index" shall mean and refer to the
Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers,
U.S. Cities Average, All Items (1982-84=100) published by the
Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor;
provided that if compilation of the CPI Index in its present form
and calculated on its present basis is discontinued or transferred
to any other governmental department or bureau, then the index most
nearly the same as the CPI Index published by the Bureau of Labor
Statistics shall be used.  If there is no such similar index, a
substitute index which is then generally recognized as being
similar to the CPI Index shall be used, such substitute index to be
reasonably selected by Lessor.  Until the CPI Index is established,
Lessee shall pay the Post-Conversion Base Rent calculated in
accordance with clause (a) above, and once the CPI Index for the
Rent Adjustment Date of such Lease Year is published, the new Post-Conversion 
Base Rent (as increased) shall be effective retroactively as of the Rent
Adjustment Date with the remaining payments to be adjusted ratably.

The example attached hereto as Schedule 3.1.2 illustrates how the
increase in Post-Conversion Base Rent shall be determined.

3.1.3  Post-Conversion Base Rent for Extended Terms. 
Notwithstanding any provisions of this Section 3.1 to the contrary,
commencing on the first day of each Extended Term, the Post-Conversion 
Base Rent for the first year of such Extended Term shall
be an amount equal to the greater of (a) the then current Post-Conversion
Base Rent or (b) an amount equal to the Original
Meditrust Investment plus the aggregate amount of Project Funds as
Lessor has advanced under the Leasehold Improvement Agreement as of
the Conversion Date plus Subsequent Investments multiplied by the
Rent Adjustment Rate then in effect on the first day of the
applicable Extended Term.  Otherwise, Base Rent shall be payable as
set forth above in this Section 3.1 and shall be subject to
adjustment as set forth above in Section 3.1.2.
3.2  Best Efforts To Maximize.  Lessee further covenants that the
operation of the Facility shall be conducted in a manner consistent
with the prevailing standards and practices recognized in the
health care industry as those customarily utilized by first class
business operations.  

3.3  [Intentionally Omitted]

3.4  Additional Charges.  Subject to the rights to contest as set
forth in Article 15, in addition to the Base Rent, (a) Lessee will
also pay and discharge as and when due and payable all Impositions,
all amounts, liabilities and obligations under the Appurtenant
Agreements and other amounts, liabilities and obligations which
Lessee assumes or agrees to pay under this Lease, and (b) in the
event of any failure on the part of Lessee to pay any of those
items referred to in clause (a) above, Lessee will also promptly
pay and discharge every fine, penalty, interest and cost which may
be added for non-payment or late payment of such items (the items
referred to in clauses (a) and (b) above being referred to herein
collectively as the "Additional Charges"), and Lessor shall have
all legal, equitable and contractual rights, powers and remedies
provided in this Lease, by statute or otherwise, in the case of 
non-payment of the Additional Charges, as well as the Base Rent. 
To the extent that Lessee pays any Additional Charges to Lessor
pursuant to any requirement of this Lease, Lessee shall be relieved
of its obligation to pay such Additional Charges to any other
Person to which such Additional Charges would otherwise be due.

3.5  Net Lease.  The Rent shall be paid absolutely net to Lessor,
so that this Lease shall yield to Lessor the full amount of the
installments of Base Rent, and the payments of Additional Charges
throughout the Term.

3.6  No Lessee Termination or Offset.

3.6.1  No Termination.  Except as may be otherwise specifically and
expressly provided in this Lease, Lessee, to the extent not
prohibited by applicable law, shall remain bound by this Lease in
accordance with its terms and shall neither take any action without
the consent of Lessor to modify, surrender or terminate the same,
nor seek nor be entitled to any abatement, deduction, deferment or
reduction of Rent, or set-off against the Rent, nor shall the
respective obligations of Lessor and Lessee be otherwise affected
by reason of (a) any Casualty or any Taking of the Leased Property,
(b) the lawful or unlawful prohibition of, or restriction upon,
Lessee's use of the Leased Property or the interference with such
use by any Person or by reason of eviction by paramount title, 
(c) any claim that Lessee has or might have against Lessor, (d) any
default or breach of any warranty by Lessor or any of the other
Meditrust Entities under this Lease, any other Lease Document or
any Related Party Agreement, (e) any bankruptcy, insolvency,
reorganization, composition, readjustment, liquidation,
dissolution, winding up or other proceedings affecting Lessor or
any assignee or transferee of Lessor or (f) for any other cause
whether similar or dissimilar to any of the foregoing, other than 
a discharge of Lessee from any of the Lease Obligations as a matter of law.

3.6.2  Waiver.  To the fullest extent not prohibited by applicable
law, Lessee hereby specifically waives all rights, arising from any
occurrence whatsoever, which may now or hereafter be conferred upon
it by law to (a) modify, surrender or terminate this Lease or quit
or surrender the Leased Property or (b) entitle Lessee to any
abatement, reduction, suspension or deferment of the Rent or other
sums payable by Lessee hereunder, except as otherwise specifically
and expressly provided in this Lease.

3.6.3  Independent Covenants.  The obligations of Lessor and Lessee
hereunder shall be separate and independent covenants and
agreements and the Rent and all other sums payable by Lessee
hereunder shall continue to be payable in all events unless the
obligations to pay the same shall be terminated pursuant to the
express provisions of this Lease or (except in those instances
where the obligation to pay expressly survives the termination of
this Lease) by termination of this Lease other than by reason of a
Lease Default.

3.7  Abatement of Rent Limited.  There shall be absolutely no
abatement of Rent on account of any Casualty, Taking or other
event, except that in the event of a partial Taking or a temporary
Taking as described in Section 14.3, the Base Rent shall be abated
as follows:  (a) in the case of such a partial Taking, the
Meditrust Investment shall be reduced for the purposes of
calculating Base Rent pursuant to Section 3.1 by subtracting
therefrom, as applicable, the net amount of the Award received by
Lessor, and (b) in the case of such a temporary Taking, by reducing
the Base Rent for the period of such a temporary Taking, by the net
amount of the Award received by Lessor.

For the purposes of this Section 3.7, the "net amount of the Award
received by Lessor" shall mean the Award paid to Lessor on account
at such Taking, minus all costs and expenses incurred by Lessor in
connection therewith, and minus any amounts paid to or for the
account of Lessee to reimburse for the costs and expenses of
reconstructing the Facility following such Taking in order to
create a viable and functional Facility under all of the
circumstances.

ARTICLE 4

IMPOSITIONS; TAXES; UTILITIES;
INSURANCE PAYMENTS

4.1  Payment of Impositions.

4.1.1  Lessee To Pay.  Lessee will pay or cause to be paid all
Impositions before any fine, penalty, interest or cost may be added
for non-payment, such payments to be made directly to the taxing
authority where feasible, and Lessee will promptly furnish Lessor
copies of official receipts or other satisfactory proof evidencing
payment not later than the last day on which the same may be paid
without penalty or interest.  Subject to Section 4.1.2, Lessee's
obligation to pay such Impositions shall be deemed absolutely fixed
upon the date such Impositions become a lien upon the Leased
Property or any part thereof.

4.1.2  Installment Elections.  If any such Imposition may, at the
option of the taxpayer, lawfully be paid in installments (whether
or not interest shall accrue on the unpaid balance of such
Imposition), Lessee may exercise the option to pay the same (and
any accrued interest on the unpaid balance of such Imposition) in
installments and, in such event, shall pay such installments during
the Term hereof (subject to Lessee's right to contest pursuant to
the provisions of Section 4.1.5 below) as the same respectively
become due and before any fine, penalty, premium, further interest
or cost may be added thereto.

4.1.3  Returns and Reports.  Lessor, at its expense, shall, to the
extent permitted by applicable law, prepare and file all tax
returns and reports as may be required by Governmental Authorities
in respect of Lessor's net income, gross receipts, franchise taxes
and taxes on its capital stock, and Lessee, at its expense, shall,
to the extent permitted by applicable laws and regulations, prepare
and file all other tax returns and reports in respect of any
Imposition as may be required by Governmental Authorities.  Lessor
and Lessee shall, upon request of the other, provide such data as
is maintained by the party to whom the request is made with respect
to the Leased Property as may be necessary to prepare any required
returns and reports.  In the event that any Governmental Authority
classifies any property covered by this Lease as personal property,
Lessee shall file all personal property tax returns in such
jurisdictions where it may legally so file.  Lessor, to the extent
it possesses the same, and Lessee, to the extent it possesses the
same, will provide the other party, upon request, with cost and
depreciation records necessary for filing returns for any portion
of Leased Property so classified as personal property.  Where
Lessor is legally required to file personal property tax returns,
if Lessee notifies Lessor of the obligation to do so in each year
at least thirty (30) days prior to the date any protest must be
filed, Lessee will be provided with copies of assessment notices so
as to enable Lessee to file a protest.

4.1.4  Refunds.  If no Lease Default or Related Party Default shall
have occurred and be continuing, any refund due from any taxing
authority in respect of any Imposition paid by Lessee shall be paid
over to or retained by Lessee.  If a Lease Default or Related Party
Default shall have occurred and be continuing, at Lessor's option,
such funds shall be paid over to Lessor and/or retained by Lessor
and applied toward the Obligations in accordance with the Lease
Documents and/or any Related Party Agreement.

4.1.5  Protest.  Upon giving notice to Lessor, at Lessee's option
and at Lessee's sole cost and expense, and subject to compliance
with the provisions of Article 15, Lessee may contest, protest,
appeal, or institute such other proceedings as Lessee may deem
appropriate to effect a reduction of any Imposition and Lessor, at
Lessee's cost and expense as aforesaid, shall fully cooperate in a
reasonable manner with Lessee in connection with such protest,
appeal or other action.

4.2  Notice of Impositions.  Lessor shall give prompt notice to
Lessee of all Impositions payable by Lessee hereunder of which
Lessor at any time has knowledge, but Lessor's failure to give any
such notice shall in no way diminish Lessee's obligations hereunder
to pay such Impositions.

4.3  Adjustment of Impositions.  Impositions imposed in respect of
the period during which the expiration or earlier termination of
the Term occurs shall be adjusted and prorated between Lessor and
Lessee, whether or not such Impositions are imposed before or after
such expiration or termination, and Lessee's obligation to pay its
prorated share thereof shall survive such expiration or
termination.

4.4  Utility Charges.  Lessee will pay or cause to be paid all
charges for electricity, power, gas, oil, water, telephone and
other utilities used in the Leased Property during the Term and
thereafter until Lessee surrenders the Leased Property in the
manner required by this Lease.

4.5  Insurance Premiums.  Lessee will pay or cause to be paid all
premiums for the insurance coverage required to be maintained
pursuant to Article 12 during the Term, and thereafter until Lessee
yields up the Leased Property in the manner required by this Lease. 
All such premiums shall be paid annually in advance and Lessee
shall furnish Lessor with evidence satisfactory to Lessor that all
such premiums have been so paid prior to the commencement of the
Term and thereafter at least thirty (30) days prior to the due date
of each premium which thereafter become due.  Notwithstanding the
foregoing, Lessee may pay such insurance premiums to the insurer in
monthly installments so long as the applicable insurer is
contractually obligated to give Lessor not less than a thirty (30)
days notice of non-payment and so long as no Lease Default has
occurred and is continuing.  In the event of the failure of Lessee
either to comply with the insurance requirements in Article 12, or
to pay the premiums for such insurance, or to deliver such policies
or certificates thereof to Lessor at the times required hereunder,
Lessor shall be entitled, but shall have no obligation, to effect
such insurance and pay the premiums therefor, which premiums shall
be a demand obligation of Lessee to Lessor.

4.6  Deposits.

4.6.1  Lessor's Option.  At the option of Lessor, which may be
exercised at any time after a default has occurred and is
continuing, Lessee shall, upon written request of Lessor, on the
first day on the calendar month immediately following such request,
and on the first day of each calendar month thereafter during the
Term (each of which dates is referred to as a "Monthly Deposit
Date"), pay to and deposit with Lessor a sum equal to one-twelfth
(1/12th) of the Impositions to be levied, charged, filed, assessed
or imposed upon or against the Leased Property within one (1) year
after said Monthly Deposit Date and a sum equal to one-twelfth

(1/12th) of the premiums for the insurance policies required
pursuant to Article 12 which are payable within one (1) year after
said Monthly Deposit Date.  If the amount of the Impositions to be
levied, charged, assessed or imposed or insurance premiums to be
paid within the ensuing one (1) year period shall not be fixed upon
any Monthly Deposit Date, such amount for the purpose of computing
the deposit to be made by Lessee hereunder shall be estimated by
Lessor with an appropriate adjustment to be promptly made between
Lessor and Lessee as soon as such amount becomes determinable.  In
addition, Lessor may, at its option, from time to time require that
any particular deposit be greater than one-twelfth (1/12th) of the
estimated amount payable within one (1) year after said Monthly
Deposit Date, if such additional deposit is required in order to
provide to Lessor a sufficient fund from which to make payment of
all Impositions on or before the next due date of any installment
thereof, or to make payment of any required insurance premiums not
later than the due date thereof.

4.6.2  Use of Deposits.  The sums deposited by Lessee under this
Section 4.6 shall be held by Lessor and shall be applied in payment
of the Impositions or insurance premiums, as the case may be, when
due.  Any such deposits may be commingled with other assets of
Lessor, and shall be invested by Lessor at such bank as Lessor may,
from time to time select, and Lessor shall not be liable to Lessee
or any other Person (a) based on Lessor's choice of investment
vehicles provided Lessor chooses one or more of the investment
vehicles described on SCHEDULE 4.6.2 attached hereto and
incorporated by reference, (b) for any consequent loss of principal
or interest or (c) for any unavailability of funds based on such
choice of investment.  Furthermore, Lessor shall bear no
responsibility for the financial condition of, nor any act or
omission by, Lessor's depository bank.  The income from such
investment or interest on such deposit shall be paid to Lessee on
a semi-annual basis as long as no Lease Default has occurred and is
then continuing, and as long as no fact or circumstance exists
which, with the giving of notice and/or the passage of time, would
constitute a Lease Default.  Lessee shall give not less than ten
(10) days prior written notice to Lessor in each instance when an
Imposition or insurance premium is due, specifying the Imposition
or premium to be paid and the amount thereof, the place of payment,
and the last day on which the same may be paid in order to comply
with the requirements of this Lease.  If Lessor, in violation of
its obligations under this Lease, does not pay any Imposition or
insurance premium when due, for which a sufficient deposit exists,
Lessee shall not be in default hereunder by virtue of the failure
of Lessor to pay such Imposition or such insurance premium.

4.6.3  Deficits.  If for any reason any deposit held by Lessor
under this Section 4.6 shall not be sufficient to pay an Imposition
or insurance premium within the time specified therefor in this
Lease, then, within ten (10) days after demand by Lessor, Lessee
shall deposit an additional amount with Lessor, increasing the
deposit held by Lessor so that Lessor holds sufficient funds to pay
such Imposition or premium in full (or in installments as otherwise
provided for herein), together with any penalty or interest
thereon.  Lessor may change its estimate of any Imposition or
insurance premium for any period on the basis of a change in an
assessment or tax rate or on the basis of a prior miscalculation or
for any other good faith reason; in which event, within ten (10)
days after demand by Lessor, Lessee shall deposit with Lessor the
amount in excess of the sums previously deposited with Lessor for
the applicable period which would theretofore have been payable
under the revised estimate.

4.6.4  Other Properties.  If any Imposition shall be levied,
charged, filed, assessed, or imposed upon or against the Leased
Property, and if such Imposition shall also be a levy, charge,
assessment, or imposition upon or for any other real or personal
property that does not constitute a part of the Leased Property,
then the computation of the amounts to be deposited under this
Section 4.6 shall be based upon the entire amount of such
Imposition and Lessee shall not have the right to apportion any
deposit with respect to such Imposition.

4.6.5  Transfers.  In connection with any assignment of Lessor's
interest under this Lease, the original Lessor named herein and
each successor in interest shall have the right to transfer all
amounts deposited pursuant to the provisions of this Section 4.6
and still in its possession to such assignee (as the subsequent
holder of Lessor's interest in this Lease) and upon such transfer,
the original Lessor named herein or the applicable successor in
interest transferring the deposits shall thereupon be completely
released from all liability with respect to such deposits so
transferred and Lessee shall look solely to said assignee, as the
subsequent holder of Lessor's interest under this Lease, in
reference thereto.

4.6.6  Security.  All amounts deposited with Lessor pursuant to the
provisions of this Section 4.6 shall be held by Lessor as
additional security for the payment and performance of the
Obligations and, upon the occurrence of any Lease Default, Lessor
may, in its sole and absolute discretion, apply said amounts
towards payment or performance of such Obligations.

4.6.7  Return.  Upon the expiration or earlier termination of this
Lease, provided, that, all of the Lease Obligations have been fully
paid and performed, any sums then held by Lessor under this Section
4.6 shall be refunded to Lessee; unless a Related Party Default has
occurred, in which event such sums may be applied towards the
Obligations.

4.6.8  Receipts.  Lessee shall deliver to Lessor copies of all
notices, demands, claims, bills and receipts in relation to the
Impositions and an annual summary invoice of insurance premiums
immediately upon receipt thereof by Lessee.

ARTICLE 5

OWNERSHIP OF LEASED PROPERTY AND PERSONAL PROPERTY;
INSTALLATION, REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT OF PERSONAL PROPERTY

5.1  Ownership of the Leased Property.  Lessee acknowledges that
the Leased Property is the property of Lessor and that Lessee has
only the right to the exclusive possession and use of the Leased
Property upon the terms and conditions of this Lease.

5.2  Personal Property; Removal and Replacement of Personal
Property.

5.2.1  Lessee To Equip Facility.  Lessee, at its sole cost and
expense, shall install, affix or assemble or place on the Leased
Property, sufficient items of Tangible Personal Property in
addition to Lessor's Personal Property, to enable the operation of
the Facility in accordance with the requirements of this Lease for
the Primary Intended Use and, to the extent applicable, the Other
Permitted Uses and such Tangible Personal Property and replacements
thereof, shall be at all times the property of Lessee.

5.2.2  Sufficient Personal Property.  Lessee shall maintain, during
the entire Term, the Tangible Personal Property and Lessor's
Personal Property in good order and repair and shall provide at its
expense all necessary replacements thereof, as may be necessary in
order to operate the Facility in compliance with all applicable
Legal Requirements and Insurance Requirements and otherwise in
accordance with customary practice in the industry for the Primary
Intended Use and, to the extent applicable, the Other Permitted
Uses.  In addition, Lessee shall (a) furnish all necessary
replacements of obsolete items of the Tangible Personal Property
and Lessor's Personal Property during the Term, unless Lessee
provides Lessor with an explanation (reasonably acceptable to
Lessor) as to why such Tangible Personal Property and Lessor's
Personal Property is no longer required in connection with the
operation of the Leased Property and (b) at least once a year, and
more frequently if requested by Lessor, deliver to Lessor, a
detailed inventory of all such Tangible Personal Property and
Lessor's Personal Property.

5.2.3  Removal and Replacement; Lessor's Option to Purchase. 
Lessee shall not remove from the Leased Property any one or more
items of Tangible Personal Property (whether now owned or hereafter
acquired), the fair market value of which exceeds TWENTY-FIVE
THOUSAND and NO/100 DOLLARS ($25,000.00), individually or ONE
HUNDRED THOUSAND and NO/100 DOLLARS ($100,000.00) collectively,
except if such Tangible Personal Property is simultaneously
suitably replaced or Lessee provides Lessor with an explanation
(reasonably satisfactory to Lessor) as to why such Tangible
Personal Property is no longer required in connection with the
operation of the Leased Property.  At its sole cost and expense,
Lessee shall restore the Leased Property to the condition required
by Article 8, including repair of all damage to the Leased Property
caused by the removal of the Tangible Personal Property, whether
effected by Lessee or Lessor.  Upon the expiration or earlier
termination of this Lease, Lessor shall have the option, which may
be exercised prior to or within sixty (60) days following such
expiration or termination, of (a) acquiring the Tangible Personal
Property (pursuant to a bill of sale and assignments of any
equipment leases, all in such forms as are reasonably satisfactory
to Lessor) upon payment of its book value (Lessee's cost, minus
depreciation), but not in excess of its fair market value or (b) 
requiring Lessee to remove the Tangible Personal Property.  If
Lessor exercises its option to purchase the Tangible Personal
Property, the price to be paid by Lessor shall be (i) reduced by
the amount of all payments due on any equipment leases or any other
Permitted Prior Security Interests and (ii) applied to the Lease
Obligations before any payment to Lessee.  If Lessor requires the
removal of the Tangible Personal Property, then all of the Tangible
Personal Property that is not removed by Lessee within ten (10)
days following such request shall be considered abandoned by Lessee
and may be appropriated, sold, destroyed or otherwise disposed of
by Lessor without first giving notice thereof to Lessee, without
any payment to Lessee and without any obligation to account
therefor.


ARTICLE 6

SECURITY FOR LEASE OBLIGATIONS

6.1  Security for Lessee's Obligations; Permitted Prior Security
Interests.

6.1.1  Security.  In order to secure the payment and performance of
all of the Obligations, Lessee agrees to provide or cause there to
be provided the following security:

(a)  a first lien and exclusive security interest in the
Collateral, as more particularly provided for in the Security
Agreement;

(b)  the Guaranty described in Section 6.3;

(c)  a first lien and exclusive pledge of all of the capital stock
of Lessee all as more particularly set forth in the Pledge
Agreement.  If any Person other than the Lessee or Guarantor shall
ever operate the Facility, a pledge of all capital stock of or
partnership or other ownership interests in such Person shall also
be provided pursuant to a pledge and security agreement
substantially similar to the Pledge Agreements;

(d)  a first lien and exclusive pledge and assignment of, and
security interest in, all Permits and Contracts, as more
particularly provided for in the Collateral Assignment of Permits
and Contracts; and  

(e)  in the event that at any time during the Term, Lessee holds
the fee title to or a leasehold interest in any real property
and/or personal property which is used as an integral part of the
operation of the Leased Property (but is not subject to this
Lease), Lessee shall (i) provide Lessor with prior notice of such
acquisition and (ii) shall take such actions and enter into such
agreements as Lessor shall reasonably request in order to grant
Lessor a first priority mortgage or other security interest in such
real property and personal property, subject only to the Permitted
Encumbrances and other Liens reasonably acceptable to Lessor. 

6.1.2  Purchase-Money Security Interests and Equipment Leases. 
Lessee may (a) grant priority purchase money security interests in
items of Tangible Personal Property and (b) lease Tangible Personal
Property from equipment lessors as long as in each instance: (i)
the secured party or equipment lessor enters into an intercreditor
agreement with, and satisfactory to, Lessor, pursuant to which,
without limiting the foregoing, (x) Lessor shall be afforded the
option of curing defaults and the option of succeeding to the
rights of Lessee and (y) Lessor's security interest in Tangible
Personal Property shall be subordinated to the security interest
granted to such secured party, (ii) all of the terms, conditions
and provisions of the financing, security interest or lease are
reasonably acceptable to Lessor, (iii) Lessee provides a true and
complete copy, as executed, of each such purchase money security
agreement, financing document and equipment lease, (iv) no such
security interest, financing agreement or lease is cross-defaulted
or cross-collateralized with any other obligation and (v) the
secured party or equipment lessor is not a member of the Leasing
Group or an Affiliate of any member of the Leasing Group.  Security
interests granted by Lessee in full compliance with the provisions
of this Section 6.1.2 are referred to as "Permitted Prior Security
Interests".

6.2  Credit Enhancement

6.2.1  Cash Deposit/Letter of Credit.  In order to further secure
Lessee's performance of the Obligations, on or before the
Conversion Date, Lessee shall provide and pledge to Lessor a credit
enhancement (the "Credit Enhancement") for the benefit of Lessor in
the form of either (i) cash or other specified investments approved
by Lessor in Lessor's name (the "Cash Collateral") pursuant to the
terms of a Deposit Pledge Agreement entered into between Lessor and
Lessee on a form reasonably acceptable to Lessor,  (ii) a Letter of
Credit as described in subsection (b) below or (iii) some
combination of Cash Collateral and Letter of Credit, as Lessee may
elect from time to time, provided that such Credit Enhancement is
in the total of the Stated Amount.  The Credit Enhancement shall
serve as additional security for the Obligations and may be drawn
upon by Lessor upon any Lease Default.  Lessee shall maintain the
Credit Enhancement in the full Stated Amount throughout the Term. 

(a)  Any portion of the Credit Enhancement in the form of Cash
Collateral shall be in form and substance, and if Lessor elects a
form of Cash Collateral other than actual cash, from a bank
continually acceptable to Lessor in Lessor's reasonable discretion
and shall be pledged to Lessor pursuant to the Deposit Pledge
Agreement.

(b)  With respect to any portion of the Credit Enhancement in the
form of a letter of credit (the "Letter of Credit"), Lessee shall
provide an irrevocable Letter of Credit in favor of the Lessor (and
satisfactory to Lessor in all respects).  Without limiting the
foregoing, the Letter of Credit must provide that it shall inure to
the benefit of Lessor's successors and assigns and may be
successively transferred, and must be issued by any Institutional
Lender satisfactory to Lessor, in its reasonable discretion (it
being agreed that Boatmen's is satisfactory to Lessor subject,
however, to the last paragraph of this Section 6.2.1 and to
Lessor's receipt and approval of satisfactory (determined in
Lessor's sole and absolute discretion) financial information about
Boatmen's).  Lessee covenants and agrees to take all necessary
actions to maintain such Letter of Credit (or any substitute for
such Letter of Credit delivered pursuant to this Section 6.2.1) in
effect so long as any portion of the Credit Enhancement is in the
form of the Letter of Credit.

Any Letter of Credit delivered pursuant to this Section shall also
provide that Lessor shall receive at least ninety (90) days' prior
written notice of the termination or expiration of the Letter
of Credit from the issuer thereof, and that if such notice is not
provided, the Letter of Credit shall automatically be extended for
one (1) year.  Within sixty (60) days after the issuer's sending
such notice of expiration or termination, Lessee shall provide
Lessor with a substitute Letter of Credit to replace the then
expiring Letter of Credit, at which time Lessor will return the
expiring Letter of Credit.  Lessee's failure to provide a
substitute Letter of Credit as set forth above shall constitute an
Event of Default under the Lease Documents which shall entitle
Lessor to exercise all of the rights and remedies set forth in the
Lease Documents, including, without limitation, the right to draw
the full amount of the then expiring Letter of Credit.

If at any time while Lessor is holding a Letter of Credit pursuant
to this Section, the rating of the issuer of such Letter of Credit
drops below Moody's single "A-" or such equivalent rating from some
other rating agency as Lessor may choose in its reasonable
discretion (if the Moody's rating becomes unavailable or Lessor for
any other reason elects to no longer rely on Moody's as a rating
agency), Lessor shall immediately notify Lessee of such fact, and
upon receipt of such notice from Lessor, Lessee shall provide
Lessor with Cash Collateral or a substitute Letter of Credit (again
meeting all the requirements of the Letter of Credit set forth
above) within thirty (30) days and upon delivery of such new Letter
of Credit, the prior Letter of Credit shall be returned to Lessee. 
Lessee's failure to provide such Cash Collateral or Letter of
Credit shall constitute a Lease Default under the Lease Documents
which shall entitle Lessor to exercise all rights and remedies set
forth in the Lease Documents, including, without limitation, the
right to draw in full the Letter of Credit whose issuer has the
unsatisfactory Moody's Rating.

6.2.2  Application of Credit Enhancement.  Upon the occurrence of
any Lease Default, Lessor shall be entitled, at its option, to use
all or any portion of the Credit Enhancement, including interest
thereon, then held by it to pay any amount otherwise payable by
Lessee or the Guarantor under any of the Lease Documents, in
accordance with the terms of this Lease or the other Lease
Documents.

6.2.3  Replenishment of Cash Collateral.  If Lessor expends any of
the Credit Enhancement to pay any amount payable by Lessee, or
otherwise applies the same to or towards the Obligations, Lessee
shall, upon demand of Lessor, immediately augment either the Cash
Collateral or the Letter of Credit so as to increase the amount
held by Lessor as the Credit Enhancement to the full Stated Amount.

6.3 Guaranty.  All of the Lease Obligations shall be
unconditionally and irrevocably guaranteed by the Guarantor
pursuant to the Guaranty.

Upon the request of Lessor, at any time and from time to time
during the Term, Lessee shall engage one (1) or more independent
professional Consultants, qualified to do business in the State and
acceptable to Lessor to perform any environmental and/or structural

Requirements.

7.2.2  Permitted Uses.  During the entire Term, Lessee shall use
the Leased Property, or permit the Leased Property to be used, only
for the Primary Intended Use and the Other Permitted Uses.  Lessee
shall not use the Leased Property or permit the Leased Property to
be used for any other use without the prior written consent of
Lessor, which consent may be withheld in Lessor's sole and absolute
discretion.

7.2.3  Compliance With Insurance Requirements.  No use shall be
made or permitted to be made of the Leased Property and no acts
shall be done which will cause the cancellation of any insurance
policy covering the Leased Property, nor shall Lessee sell or
otherwise provide to residents therein, or permit to be kept, used
or sold in or about the Leased Property, any article which may be

expense, take whatever other actions that may be necessary to
comply with and to insure that the Leased Property complies with
all Insurance Requirements.

any waste on, in or under the Leased Property, nor shall Lessee
cause or permit any nuisance thereon.

7.2.5  No Impairment.  Lessee shall neither suffer nor permit the
Leased Property to be used in such a manner as (a) might reasonably
tend to impair Lessor's title thereto or (b) may reasonably make
possible a claim or claims of adverse usage or adverse possession
by the public or of implied dedication of the Leased Property.

7.2.6  No Liens.  Except for Permitted Prior Security Interests and
any other Liens which may be specifically permitted by the express

agrees that the Leased Property shall not be used for any unlawful
purpose and that Lessee, at its sole cost and expense, will
promptly (a) comply with, and shall cause every other member of the
Leasing Group to comply with, all Legal Requirements relating to
the use, operation, maintenance, repair and restoration of the
Leased Property, whether or not compliance therewith shall require
structural change in any of the Leased Property or interfere with
the use and enjoyment of the Leased Property and (b) procure,
maintain and comply with (in all material respects), and shall
cause every other member of the Leasing Group to procure, maintain
and comply with (in all material respects), all Contracts and
Permits necessary or desirable in order to operate the Leased
Property for the Primary Intended Use and, to the extent
applicable, Other Permitted Uses, and for the proper erection,
installation, operation and maintenance of the Leased Property. 
Unless a Lease Default has occurred, Lessee may, upon prior written
notice to Lessor, contest any Legal Requirement to the extent
permitted by, and in accordance with, Article 15 below.

7.4  Management Agreements.  Throughout the Term, Lessee shall not
enter into any Management Agreement without the prior written
approval of Lessor, in each instance, which approval shall not be

shall be provided notice of any defaults thereunder and, at
Lessor's option, an opportunity to cure such default; all in form

and substance approved by Lessor.  If Lessor shall cure any of
Lessee's defaults under the Management Agreement, the cost of such
cure shall be payable upon demand by Lessee to Lessor and Lessor
shall have the same rights and remedies for failure to pay such
costs on demand as for Lessee's failure to pay any other sums due
hereunder.  Lessee shall deliver to Lessor any instrument requested
by Lessor to implement the intent of the foregoing provision,
including, but not limited to, the Affiliated Party Subordination
Agreement.  All management fees, payments in connection with any
extension of credit and fees for services provided in connection
with the operation of the Leased Property, and all other payments
and fees, payable by Lessee, to (i) the Guarantor or any of its
Affiliates or (ii) any Affiliate of Lessee, shall be subordinated
to the Lease Obligations pursuant to the Affiliated Party
Subordination Agreement.

ARTICLE 8

REPAIRS; RESTRICTIONS

8.1  Maintenance and Repair.

8.1.1  Lessee's Responsibility.  Lessee, at its sole cost and
expense, shall keep the Leased Property and all private roadways,
sidewalks and curbs appurtenant thereto which are under Lessee's
control in good order and repair (whether or not the need for such
repairs occurs as a result of Lessee's use, any prior use, the
elements or the age of the Leased Property or such private
roadways, sidewalks and curbs or any other cause whatsoever) and,
subject to Articles 9, 13 and 14, Lessee shall promptly, with the
exercise of all reasonable efforts, undertake and diligently
complete all necessary and appropriate repairs, replacements,
renovations, restorations, alterations and modifications thereof of
every kind and nature, whether interior or exterior, structural or
non-structural, ordinary or extraordinary, foreseen or unforeseen
or arising by reason of a condition (concealed or otherwise)
existing prior to the commencement of, or during, the Term and
thereafter until Lessee surrenders the Leased Property in the
manner required by this Lease.  In addition, Lessee, at its sole
cost and expense, shall make all repairs, modifications,
replacements, renovations and alterations of the Leased Property
(and such private roadways, sidewalks and curbs) that are necessary
to comply with all applicable Legal Requirements and Insurance
Requirements so that the Leased Property can be legally operated
for the Primary Intended Use and, to the extent applicable, the
Other Permitted Uses.  All repairs, replacements, renovations,

alterations, and modifications required by the terms of this
Section 8.1 shall be (a) performed in a good and workmanlike manner
in compliance with all Legal Requirements, Insurance Requirements
and the requirements of Article 9 hereof, using new materials well
suited for their intended purpose and (b) consistent with the
operation of the Facility in a first class manner.  Lessee will not
take or omit to take any action the taking or omission of which
might materially impair the value or the usefulness of the Leased
Property for the Primary Intended Use and, to the extent
applicable, the Other Permitted Uses.  To the extent that any of
the repairs, replacements, renovations, alterations or
modifications required by the terms of this Section 8.1 constitute
Material Structural Work, Lessee shall obtain Lessor's prior
written approval (which approval shall not be unreasonably
withheld) of the specific repairs, replacements, renovations,
alterations and modifications to be performed by or on behalf of
Lessee in connection with such Material Structural Work, and shall
perform the same in accordance with the provisions of Sections
9.2.1, 9.2.2, 9.4 and 13.1.3, all Legal Requirements, and all other
requirements of this Lease.

8.1.2  No Lessor Obligation.  Lessor shall not, under any
circumstances, be required to build or rebuild any improvements on
the Leased Property (or any private roadways, sidewalks or curbs
appurtenant thereto), or to make any repairs, replacements,
renovations, alterations, restorations, modifications, or renewals
of any nature or description to the Leased Property (or any private
roadways, sidewalks or curbs appurtenant thereto), whether ordinary
or extraordinary, structural or non-structural, foreseen or
unforeseen, or to make any expenditure whatsoever with respect
thereto in connection with this Lease, or to maintain the Leased
Property in any way (or any private roadways, sidewalks or curbs
appurtenant thereto).  With respect to the foregoing, Lessee hereby
waives any rights it might have under Florida Statutes 83.201.

8.1.3  Lessee May Not Obligate Lessor.  Nothing contained herein
nor any action or inaction by Lessor shall be construed as (a)
constituting the consent or request of Lessor, express or implied,
to any contractor, subcontractor, laborer, materialman or vendor to
or for the performance of any labor or services for any
construction, alteration, addition, repair or demolition of or to
the Leased Property or (b) giving Lessee any right, power or
permission to contract for or permit the performance of any labor
or services or the furnishing of any materials or other property in
such fashion as would permit the making of any claim against Lessor
for the payment thereof or to make any agreement that may create,
or in any way be the basis for, any right, title or interest in, or
Lien or claim against, the estate of Lessor in the Leased Property.

8.1.4  Lessee's Obligation to Perform Upgrade Expenditures. 
Without limiting Lessee's obligations to maintain the Leased
Property under this Lease, within thirty (30) days after the end of
each Lease Year commencing with the end of the third (3rd) Lease
Year, Lessee shall provide Lessor with evidence reasonably
satisfactory to Lessor that Lessee has in such Lease Year spent an
annual amount on Upgrade Expenditures (collectively, the "Required
Lease Year Upgrade Expenditures") equal to $200.00 per living unit
within the Facility (as such per living unit amount shall be
adjusted annually at the end of each Lease Year for increases in
the U.S. Department of Labor Cost of Living Index (All Consumers -
Miami  - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida - 1982-1984 = 100) or similar
replacement index since the commencement of the Term).  The term
"Upgrade Expenditures" is defined to mean upgrades or improvements
to the Leased Property which have the effect of maintaining or
improving the competitive position of the Leased Property in its
marketplace.  Non-exclusive examples of Upgrade Expenditures
include new or replacement wallpaper, tiles, window coverings,
lighting fixtures, painting, upgraded landscaping, carpeting,
architectural adornments, common areas amenities and the like.  It
is expressly understood that capital improvements or repairs (such
as but not limited to repairs or replacements to the structural
elements of the walls, parking area, or the roof or to the
electrical, plumbing, HVAC or other mechanical or structural
systems in the Leased Property) shall not be considered Upgrade
Expenditures.  In the event that during a given Lease Year Upgrade
Expenditures are not necessary (which necessity shall be determined
in Lessor's sole discretion) and/or the full amount of the
respective Required Lease Year Upgrade Expenditures are not made
for the Facility for whatever reason, Lessee shall be required to
show evidence that a reserve fund has been established with the
balance of the unexpended Required Lease Year Upgrade Expenditures
to be used solely for Upgrade Expenditures in future Lease Years or
as otherwise requested by Lessor.  If Lessee fails in any given
Lease Year to make  Upgrade Expenditures in an amount equal to the
Required Lease Year Upgrade Expenditures or to establish a reserve
fund as aforesaid, Lessee shall promptly on demand from Lessor (but
in no event within more than five (5) days) pay to Lessor the
applicable shortfall in the Required Lease Year Upgrade
Expenditures; and Lessor may retain such funds as additional rent
hereunder or, in its sole discretion, provide such funds to Lessee
to perform Upgrade Expenditures.  

8.2  Encroachments; Title Restrictions.  If any of the Leased
Improvements shall, at any time, encroach upon any property, street
or right-of-way adjacent to the Leased Property, or shall violate
the agreements or conditions contained in any lawful restrictive
covenant or other Lien now or hereafter affecting the Leased
Property, or shall impair the rights of others under any easement,
right-of-way or other Lien to which the Leased Property is now or
hereafter subject, then promptly upon the request of Lessor, Lessee
shall, at its sole cost and expense, subject to Lessee's right to
contest the existence of any encroachment, violation or impairment
as set forth in Article 15, (a) obtain valid and effective waivers
or settlements of all claims, liabilities and damages resulting
from each such encroachment, violation or impairment or (b) make
such alterations to the Leased Improvements, and take such other
actions, as Lessee in the good faith exercise of its judgment deems
reasonably practicable, to remove such encroachment, or to end such
violation or impairment, including, if necessary, the alteration of
any of the Leased Improvements.  Notwithstanding the foregoing,
Lessee shall, in any event, take all such actions as may be
reasonably necessary in order to be able to continue the operation
of the Leased Improvements for the Primary Intended Use and, to the
extent applicable, the Other Permitted Uses substantially in the
manner and to the extent that the Leased Improvements were operated
prior to the assertion of such encroachment, violation or
impairment and nothing contained herein shall limit Lessee's
obligations to operate the Leased Property in accordance with its
Primary Intended Use.  Any such alteration made pursuant to the
terms of this Section 8.2 shall be completed in conformity with the
applicable requirements of Section 8.1 and Article 9.  Lessee's
obligations under this Section 8.2 shall be in addition to and
shall in no way discharge or diminish any obligation of any insurer
under any policy of title or other insurance.

ARTICLE 9

MATERIAL STRUCTURAL WORK AND
CAPITAL ADDITIONS

9.1  Lessor's Approval.  Without the prior written consent of
Lessor, which consent may be withheld by Lessor, in its sole and
absolute discretion, Lessee shall make no Capital Addition or
Material Structural Work to the Leased Property (including, without

provide or arrange financing for a Capital Addition by providing to
Lessor such information about the Capital Addition as Lessor may

that Lessor shall be under no obligation to agree to such request. 
Nevertheless, Lessor shall use reasonable efforts to notify Lessee,
within forty-five (45) days of receipt of such information, as to
whether Lessor will finance the proposed Capital Addition and, if
so, the terms and conditions upon which it would do so, including
the terms of any amendment to this Lease (including, without
limitation, an increase in Base Rent based on Lessor's then
existing terms and prevailing conditions to compensate Lessor for
its Subsequent Investment with respect to such Capital Addition). 
Lessee may withdraw its request by notice to Lessor at any time
before such time as Lessee accepts Lessor's terms and conditions.

to such Capital Addition.

9.4  General Limitations:  Without in any way limiting Lessor's
options with respect to proposed Capital Additions or Material
Structural Work:  (a) no Capital Addition or Material Structural
Work shall be completed that could, upon completion, significantly
alter the character or purpose or detract from the value or
operating efficiency of the Leased Property, or significantly
impair the revenue-producing capability of the Leased Property, or
adversely affect the ability of Lessee to comply with the terms of
this Lease; (b) no Capital Addition or Material Structural Work
shall be completed which would tie in or connect any Leased
Improvements on the Leased Property with any other improvements on
property adjacent to the Leased Property (and not part of the Land

buildings or other structures or utilities, unless Lessee shall

all proposed Capital Additions and Material Structural Work shall
be architecturally integrated and consistent with the Leased
Property.

9.5 Non-Capital Additions.  Lessee shall have the obligation and
right to make repairs, replacements and alterations which are not
Capital Additions and which are required by the other Sections of
this Lease, but in so doing, Lessee shall always comply with and
satisfy the conditions of Sections 9.2.1 and 9.4.  Lessee shall
have the right, from time to time, to make additions, modifications
or improvements to the Leased Property which do not constitute
Capital Additions or Material Structural Work and are not required
by the other Sections of this Lease from time to time as it may
deem to be desirable or necessary for its uses and purposes,
subject to the same limits and conditions imposed under Sections
9.2.1 and 9.4.  The cost of any such repair, replacement,
alteration, addition, modification or improvement shall be paid by
Lessee and the results thereof shall be included under the terms of
this Lease and become a part of the Leased Property, without

payment therefor by Lessor at any time.  Notwithstanding the
foregoing, all such additions, modifications and improvements which
affect the structure of any of the Leased Improvements, or which
involve the expenditure of more than TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND and
NO/100 DOLLARS ($25,000.00), shall be undertaken only upon
compliance with the provisions of Section 13.1.3, all Legal
Requirements and all other requirements of this Lease.

9.6  Permitted Work.  Notwithstanding Section 9.1 above, Lessee
shall have the right to perform Permitted Work (as defined below)
without Lessor's prior approval or consent as long as Lessee gives
to Lessor prior notice that Lessee is undertaking such Permitted
Work and provides Lessor with reasonably detailed plans and
specifications describing the work to be done.  "Permitted Work"
shall mean work to a Facility which will not affect any of the
structural elements of the Facility and which costs less than FIFTY
THOUSAND AND NO/100 DOLLARS ($50,000.00) during any consecutive
twelve (12) month period.  Any work to a Facility, regardless of
cost, which (a) will affect any structural element of the relevant
Facility and (b) is not otherwise subject to an approval of Lessor
pursuant to any other provision of this Lease, shall still require
the prior written consent of Lessor, which consent may be withheld
by Lessor in its sole and absolute discretion.

the date of this Lease, Lessee does not have any Subsidiaries and
Lessee is not a member of any partnership or joint venture. 
Attached hereto as EXHIBIT C is a true and correct list of all the
shareholders of Lessee and their respective ownership interests in

obligation of Lessee, enforceable in accordance with its terms.

10.1.3  Single Purpose.  Lessee is, and during the entire time that
this Lease remains in force and effect shall be, engaged in no

Property for the Primary Intended Use and the Other Permitted Uses
and such other activities in which Lessee is permitted to engage by
the provisions of the Meditrust/ALP Transaction Documents.  

10.1.4  No Violation.  The execution, delivery and performance of
the Lease Documents and the consummation of the transactions
thereby contemplated shall not result in any breach of, or
constitute a default under, or result in the acceleration of, or
constitute an event which, with the giving of notice or the passage
of time, or both, could result in default or acceleration of any
obligation of any member of the Leasing Group under any of the
Permits or Contracts or any other contract, mortgage, lien, lease,
agreement, instrument, franchise, arbitration award, judgment,
decree, bank loan or credit agreement, trust indenture or other
instrument to which any member of the Leasing Group is a party or
by which any member of the Leasing Group may be bound or affected
and do not violate or contravene any Legal Requirement.

10.1.5  Consents and Approvals.  Except as already obtained or
filed, as the case may be, no consent or approval or other
authorization of, or exemption by, or declaration or filing with,
any Person and no waiver of any right by any Person is required to
authorize or permit, or is otherwise required as a condition of
Lessee's execution, delivery and performance of its obligations
under the Lease Documents or as a condition to the validity
(assuming the due authorization, execution and delivery by Lessor
of the Lease Documents to which it is a party) and the first
priority of any Liens granted under the Lease Documents or, as to
any Tangible Personal Property and/or Receivables, as the case may
be, as to which there are Permitted Prior Security Interests, the
agreed junior priority of any such Liens, except the filing of the
Financing Statements.

10.1.6  No Liens or Insolvency Proceedings.  Each member of the
Leasing Group is financially solvent and there are no actions,
suits, investigations or proceedings including, without limitation,
outstanding federal or state tax liens, garnishments or insolvency
or bankruptcy proceedings, pending or, to the best of Lessee's
knowledge and belief, threatened:

(a)  against or affecting any member of the Leasing Group, which if
adversely resolved to such member of the Leasing Group, would
materially adversely affect the ability of any of the foregoing to
perform their respective obligations under the Lease Documents;

(b)  against or affecting the Leased Property or the ownership,
construction, development, maintenance, management, repair, use,
occupancy, possession or operation thereof; or

(c)  which may involve or affect the validity, priority or
enforceability of any of the Lease Documents, at law or in equity,
or before or by any arbitrator or Governmental Authority.

10.1.7  No Burdensome Agreements.  Neither Lessee nor the Guarantor
is a party to any agreement the terms of which now have, or, as far
as can be reasonably foreseen, may have, a material adverse affect
on its respective financial condition or business or on the
operation of the Leased Property.

10.1.8 Commercial Acts.  Lessee's performance of and compliance
with the obligations and conditions set forth herein and in the
other Lease Documents will constitute commercial acts done and
performed for commercial purposes.

10.1.9  Adequate Capital, Not Insolvent.  After giving effect to
the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Lease
Documents, each member of the Leasing Group:

(a)  will be able to pay its debts as they become due;

(b)  will have sufficient funds and capital to carry on its
business as now conducted or as contemplated to be conducted (in
accordance with the terms of the Lease Documents);

(c)  will own property having a value both at fair valuation and at
present fair saleable value greater than the amount required to pay
its debts as they become due; and

(d)  will not be rendered insolvent as determined by applicable
law.

10.1.10  Not Delinquent.  No member of the Leasing Group is
delinquent or claimed to be delinquent under any obligation for the
payment of borrowed money.

10.1.11  No Affiliate Debt.  Lessee has not created, incurred,
guaranteed, endorsed, assumed or suffered to exist any liability
(whether direct or contingent) for borrowed money from the
Guarantor (or any of its Affiliates) or any Affiliate of Lessee.

10.1.12  Taxes Current.  Each member of the Leasing Group has filed
all federal, state and local tax returns which are required to be
filed as to which extensions are not currently in effect and have
paid all taxes, assessments, impositions, fees and other
governmental charges (including interest and penalties) which have
become due pursuant to such returns or pursuant to anyassessment or
notice of tax claim or deficiency received by each such member of
the Leasing Group.  No tax liability has been asserted by the
Internal Revenue Service against any member of the Leasing Group or
any other federal, state or local taxing authority for taxes,
assessments, impositions, fees or other governmental charges
(including interest or penalties thereon) in excess of those
already paid.

10.1.13  Financials Complete and Accurate.  The financial
statements of each member of the Leasing Group given to Lessor in
connection with the Lease were true, complete and accurate and
fairly presented the financial condition of each such member of the
Leasing Group as of the date thereof and for the periods covered
thereby, having been prepared in accordance with GAAP and such
financial statements disclosed all liabilities, including, without
limitation, contingent liabilities, of each such member of the
Leasing Group.  There has been no material adverse change since
such date with respect to the Tangible Net Worth of any member of
the Leasing Group or with respect to any other matters contained in
such financial statements, nor have any additional material
liabilities, including, without limitation, contingent liabilities,
of any member of the Leasing Group arisen or been incurred or
asserted since such date.  The projections heretofore delivered to
Lessor continue to be reasonable (with respect to the material
assumptions upon which such projections are based) and Lessee
reasonably anticipates the results projected therein will be
achieved, there having been (a) no material adverse change in the
business, assets or condition, financial or otherwise of any member
of the Leasing Group and (b) no material depletion of the cash
or decrease in working capital of any member of the Leasing Group.

10.1.14  Pending Actions, Notices and Reports.

(a)  There are no actions or investigations pending or, to the best
knowledge and belief of either Lessee or Guarantor, threatened,
anticipated or contemplated (nor, to the knowledge of either Lessee
or Guarantor, is there any reasonable basis therefor) against or
affecting the Leased Property or any member of the Leasing Group
(or any Affiliate thereof) before any Governmental Authority,
Accreditation Body or Third Party Payor which could prevent or
hinder the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby or
call into question the validity of any of the Lease Documents or
any action taken or to be taken in connection with the transactions

contemplated thereunder or which in any single case or in the
aggregate might result in any material adverse change in the
business, prospects, condition, affairs or operations of any member
of the Leasing Group or the Leased Property (including, without
limitation, any action to revoke, withdraw or suspend any Permit
necessary or desirable for the operation of the Leased Property in
accordance with its Primary Intended Use and any action to transfer
or relocate any such Permit to a location other than the Leased
Property) or any material impairment of the right or ability of any
member of the Leasing Group to carry on its operations as presently
conducted upon Completion of the Project or proposed, upon
Completion of the Project, to be conducted with respect to the
Leased Property or with respect to its obligations under the Lease
Documents or which may materially adversely impact reimbursement to
any member of the Leasing Group for services rendered to
beneficiaries of Third Party Payor Programs.

(b)  No member of the Leasing Group has received any notice of any
claim, requirement or demand of any Governmental Authority,
Accreditation Body, Third Party Payor or any insurance body having
or claiming any licensing, certifying, supervising, evaluating or
accrediting authority over the Facility to rework or redesign the
Facility, its professional staff or its professional services,
procedures or practices in any material respect or to provide
additional furniture, fixtures, equipment or inventory or to
otherwise take action so as to make the Facility conform to or
comply with any Legal Requirement;

(c)  The most recent utilization reviews relating to the Facility
by all applicable Third Party Payors, Accreditation Bodies and
Governmental Authorities and reviews or scrutiny by any managed
care or utilization review companies have not had a material
adverse impact on the utilization of units or programs at the
Facility.  No claims or assertions have been made in any
utilization review that any of the practices or procedures used at
the Facility are improper or inappropriate other than such claims
or assertions which singly and in the aggregate will not have a
material adverse impact on the Facility; and 

(d)  Lessee and Guarantor have delivered or caused to be delivered
to Lessor true and correct copies of all licenses, inspection
surveys and accreditation reviews relating to the Facility, issued
by any Governmental Authority or Accreditation Body during the most
recent licensing period, together with all plans of correction
relating thereto.

10.1.15  Compliance with Legal and Other Requirements.

(a)  To the extent consistent with the stage of construction of the
Project, Lessee and the Leased Property and the ownership,
construction, development, maintenance, management, repair, use,
occupancy, possession and operation thereof comply with all
applicable Legal Requirements and there is no claim of any
violation thereof known to Lessee or Guarantor.  Without limiting
the foregoing, Lessee has obtained all Permits that are necessary
or desirable to operate the Leased Property in accordance with its
Primary Intended Use or reasonably expects to obtain such Permits
prior to, or upon, the Completion of the Project; and 

(b)  Except as previously delivered to Lessor pursuant to Section 
10.1.14(d) hereof, there are no outstanding notices of
deficiencies, notices of proposed action or orders of any kind
relating to the Leased Property issued by any Governmental
Authority, Accreditation Body or Third Party Payor requiring
conformity to any of the Legal Requirements. 

10.1.16  No Action By Governmental Authority or Accreditation Body. 
There is no action pending or, to the best knowledge and belief of
either Lessee or Guarantor, recommended, by any Governmental
Authority or Accreditation Body or Third Party Payor to revoke,
repeal, cancel, modify, withdraw or suspend any Permit or Contract
or to take any other action of any other type which could have a
material adverse effect on the Leased Property.

(a)  The Leased Property is free and clear of agreements, covenants
and Liens, except those agreements, covenants and Liens to which
this Lease is expressly subject, whether presently existing, as are
listed on EXHIBIT B or were listed on the UCC lien search results

and have direct vehicular access to a public road or access to a

shall not impede or restrict the operation of the Facility); and

(iii)  without need for any Permits and/or Contracts to be issued
by or entered into with any Governmental Authority, except as
already obtained or executed, as the case may be, or as otherwise
shown to the satisfaction of Lessor to be readily obtainable; and

Leased Improvements that changed the foot-print of any Leased

otherwise involved any alteration which would be regulated by
applicable zoning requirements.

State currently imposes no restrictions or limitations on rates
which may be charged to private pay residents receiving services at

promulgated or issued within the eighteen (18) months preceding the
date of this Lease or any proposed Legal Requirements currently

possess.

10.1.21  ERISA.  No employee pension benefit plan maintained by any
member of the Leasing Group has any accumulated funding deficiency
within the meaning of the ERISA, nor does any member of the Leasing
Group have any material liability to the PBGC established under
ERISA (or any successor thereto) in connection with any employee
pension benefit plan (or other class of benefit which the PBGC has
elected to insure), and there have been no "reportable events" (not
waived) or "prohibited transactions" with respect to any such plan,

Lease Documents, nor any certificate, agreement, statement or other
document, including, without limitation, any financial statements
concerning the financial condition of Lessee or the Guarantor,
furnished to or to be furnished to Lessor or its attorneys in
connection with this Lease, contains or will contain any untrue
statement of a material fact or omits or will omit to state a

material fact necessary in order to prevent all statements
contained herein and therein from being misleading.  There is no
fact within the special knowledge of Lessee which has not been
disclosed herein or in writing to Lessor that materially adversely
affects, or in the future, insofar as Lessee can reasonably
foresee, may materially adversely affect the business, properties,
assets or condition, financial or otherwise, of the Guarantor,

involved in any capacity in or lend any of their names to or engage
in any capacity in any assisted living facility, center, unit or
program (or in any partnership, firm, company, corporation or other
entity engaged in any such activity or any related activity
competitive therewith), whether such competitive activity shall be
as an officer, director, owner, employee, agent, advisor,
independent contractor, developer, lender, sponsor, venture
capitalist, administrator, manager, investor, partner, joint
venturer, consultant or other participant in any capacity
whatsoever within a one (1) mile radius of the Facility. 

Notwithstanding any provisions of this Section 11.5.4 to the
contrary, Lessee shall have the option to develop and operate other
assisted living facilities within the aforementioned radius
restriction at any time prior to the last twenty-four (24) months
of the Term and during the last twenty-four months of the Term if
Lessee extends the Term by an Extended Term pursuant to Section 1.3
above of this Lease, provided Lessor shall have the right of first
refusal to finance such Facility on terms no less favorable than
those offered by any other lender.

Lessee hereby acknowledges and agrees that none of the time span,
scope or area covered by the foregoing restrictive covenants is or
are unreasonable and that it is the specific intent of Lessee that
each and all of the restrictive covenants set forth hereinabove
shall be valid and enforceable as specifically set forth herein. 
Lessee further agrees that these restrictions are special, unique,
extraordinary and reasonably necessary for the protection of Lessor
and any Purchaser and that the violation of any such covenant by
Lessee would cause irreparable damage to Lessor and any Purchaser
for which a legal remedy alone would not be sufficient to fully
protect such parties. 

Therefore, in addition to and without limiting any other remedies
available at law or hereunder, in the event that Lessee breaches
any of its restrictive covenants hereunder or shall threaten breach
of any of such covenants, then Lessor and any Purchaser shall be
entitled to obtain equitable remedies, including specific

having jurisdiction over this Lease to the full duration,
geographic scope and scope of restrictive activities deemed
reasonable and thus enforceable by said court; and the parties
agree that such covenants as so amended and reformed, shall be
valid and binding as through the invalid or unenforceable portion
had not been included therein.

The provisions of this Section 11.5.4 shall survive the termination
of the Lease and any satisfaction of the Lease Obligations in
connection therewith or subsequent thereto.  The parties hereto
acknowledge and agree that any Purchaser may enforce the provisions
of this Section 11.5.4 as a third party beneficiary.

11.5.5  No Default.  Lessee shall not commit any default or breach
under any of the Lease Documents.

11.5.6  Restrictions Relating to the Guarantor.  Except as may
otherwise be expressly provided herein or in any of the other Lease
Documents, the Guarantor shall not, without the prior written
consent of Lessor, in each instance, which consent may be withheld
in the sole and absolute discretion of Lessor, convey, assign,
donate, sell, mortgage or pledge any real or personal property or
take any other action which would have a materially adverse effect
upon the Tangible Net Worth or general financial condition of the
Guarantor.

11.5.7  [Intentionally Omitted]

11.5.8  ERISA.  Lessee shall not establish or permit any Sublessee
to establish any new pension or defined benefit plan or modify any
such existing plan for employees subject to ERISA, which plan
provides any benefits based on past service without the advance
consent of Lessor to the amount of the aggregate past service
liability thereby created.

11.5.9  Forgiveness of Indebtedness.  Lessee will not waive, or
permit any Sublessee or Manager which is an Affiliate to waive any
debt or claim, except in the ordinary course of its business.

11.5.10  Value of Assets.  Except as disclosed in the financial
statements provided to Lessor as of the date hereof, Lessee will
not write up (by creating an appraisal surplus or otherwise) the
value of any assets of Lessee above their cost to Lessee, less the
depreciation regularly allowable thereon.

11.5.11  Changes in Fiscal Year and Accounting Procedures.  Lessee
shall not, without the prior written consent of Lessor, in each
instance, which consent may be withheld in Lessor's reasonable
discretion (a) change its fiscal year or capital structure or (b) change, alter,
amend or in any manner modify, except in accordance with GAAP, any of its 
current accounting procedures related to the method of revenue recognition, 
billing procedures or determinations of doubtful accounts or bad debt expenses 
nor will Lessee permit any of its Subsidiaries to change its fiscal year or
suffer or permit any circumstance to exist in which any Subsidiary
is not wholly-owned, directly or indirectly, by Lessee. 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lessor agrees to consent to any
change in Lessee's fiscal year, provided that (i) Lessee shall have
requested such consent not less than thirty (30) days prior to the
proposed effective date of such change and shall have promptly
furnished to Lessor all such financial information as Lessor may
have reasonably requested in order to determine the impact of such
change on Lessee's financial statements, (ii) no such change shall
be permitted if its effect would be to enable Lessee to satisfy any
covenant contained in this Agreement which, absent such change,
would not have been satisfied and (iii) Lessee shall have entered
into any amendment to this Lease which Lessor shall have reasonably
requested in order to maintain the intended effect of the covenants
contained in this Lease.  

11.5.12  Changes in Executive Officers.  Lessee shall not suffer or
permit to exist any circumstance in which any of the executive
officers listed on EXHIBIT J hereto ceases for any reason to serve
as an executive officer of Lessee, unless succeeded in such
position within thirty (30) days by another individual reasonably
satisfactory to Lessor, and this provision will, in turn, become
effective as to each such successive executive officer.

by applicable Legal Requirements and/or by any Fee Mortgagee.

12.1.2  Insurance Company Requirements.  All such insurance
required by this Lease or the other Lease Documents shall be issued
and underwritten by insurance companies licensed to do insurance
business by, and in good standing under the laws of, the State and
which companies have and maintain a rating of A:IX or better by
A.M. Best Co. and have been previously approved in writing by
Lessor.

12.1.3  Policy Requirements.  Every policy of insurance from time
to time required under this Lease or any of the other Lease
Documents shall name Lessor as owner, loss payee, secured party (to
the extent applicable) and additional named insured as its
interests may appear.  If an insurance policy covers properties
other than the Leased Property, then Lessor shall be so named with
respect only to the Leased Property.  Each such policy, where
applicable or appropriate, shall:

(a)  include an agreed amount endorsement and loss payee,
additional named insured and secured party endorsements, in forms
acceptable to Lessor in its sole and absolute discretion;

(b)  include mortgagee, secured party, loss payable and additional

12.1.4  Notices; Certificates and Policies.  Lessee shall promptly
provide to Lessor copies of any and all notices (including notice
of non-renewal), claims and demands which Lessee receives from

insurers of the Leased Property.  At least ten (10) days prior to
the expiration of any insurance policy required hereunder, Lessee
shall deliver to Lessor certificates and evidence of insurance
relating to all renewals and replacements thereof, together with
evidence, satisfactory to Lessor, of payment of the premiums
thereon.  Lessee shall deliver to Lessor original counterparts or
copies certified by the insurance company to be true and complete
copies, of all insurance policies required hereunder not later than
the earlier to occur of (a) ninety (90) days after the effective
date of each such policy and (b) ten (10) days after receipt
thereof by Lessee.
12.1.5  Lessor's Right to Place Insurance.  If Lessee shall fail to
obtain any insurance policy required hereunder by Lessor, or shall
fail to deliver the certificate and evidence of insurance relating
to any such policy to Lessor, or if any insurance policy required
hereunder (or any part thereof) shall expire or be cancelled or
become void or voidable by reason of any breach of any condition
thereof, or if Lessor determines that such insurance coverage is
unsatisfactory by reason of the failure or impairment of the
capital of any insurance company which wrote any such policy, upon
demand by Lessor, Lessee shall promptly obtain new or additional
insurance coverage on the Leased Property, or for those risks
required to be insured by the provisions hereof, satisfactory to
Lessor, and, at its option, Lessor may obtain such insurance and
pay the premium or premiums therefor; in which event, any amount so
paid or advanced by Lessor and all costs and expenses incurred in
connection therewith (including, without limitation, attorneys'
fees and expenses and court costs), shall be a demand obligation of
Lessee to Lessor, payable as an Additional Charge.

12.1.6  Payment of Proceeds.  All insurance policies required
hereunder (except for general public liability, professional
liability and workers' compensation and employers liability
insurance) shall provide that in the event of loss, injury or
damage, subject to the rights of any Fee Mortgagee, all proceeds
shall be paid to Lessor alone (rather than jointly to Lessee and
Lessor).  Lessor is hereby authorized to adjust and compromise any
such loss with the consent of Lessee or, following any Lease
Default, whether or not cured, without the consent of Lessee, and
to collect and receive such proceeds in the name of Lessor and
Lessee, and Lessee appoints Lessor (or any agent designated by
Lessor) as Lessee's attorney-in-fact with full power of
substitution, to endorse Lessee's name upon any check in payment
thereof.  Subject to the provisions of Article 13, such insurance
proceeds shall be applied first toward reimbursement of all costs
and expenses of Lessor in collecting said insurance proceeds, then
toward payment of the Lease Obligations or any portion thereof,
then due and payable, in such order as Lessor determines, and then
in whole or in part toward restoration, repair or reconstruction of
the Leased Property for which such insurance proceeds shall have
been paid.

12.1.7  Irrevocable Power of Attorney.  The power of attorney
conferred on Lessor pursuant to the provisions of Section 12.1.6,
being coupled with an interest, shall be irrevocable for so long as
this Lease is in effect or any Lease Obligations are outstanding,
shall not be affected by any disability or incapacity which Lessee
may suffer and shall survive the same.  Such power of attorney is
provided solely to protect the interests of Lessor and shall not
impose any duty on Lessor to exercise any such power, and neither
Lessor nor such attorney-in-fact shall be liable for any act,
omission, error in judgment or mistake of law, except as the same
may result from its gross negligence or wilful misconduct.

12.1.8  Blanket Policies.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary
contained herein, Lessee's obligations to carry the insurance
provided for herein may be brought within the coverage of a so-called
blanket policy or policies of insurance carried and
maintained by Lessee and its Affiliates covering all of the Leased
Property or covering some or all of the Leased Property and other
property owned by Lessee or its Affiliates; provided, however, that
the coverage afforded to Lessor shall not be reduced or diminished
or otherwise be different from that which would exist under a
separate policy for each of the properties comprising the Facility
meeting all other requirements of this Lease by reason of the use
of such blanket policy of insurance, and provided, further that the
requirements of Section 12.1 are otherwise satisfied.

12.1.9  No Separate Insurance.  Lessee shall not, on Lessee's own
initiative or pursuant to the request or requirement of any other
Person, take out separate insurance concurrent in form or
contributing in the event of loss with the insurance required
hereunder to be furnished by Lessee, or increase the amounts of any

then existing insurance by securing an additional policy or
additional policies, unless (a) all parties having an insurable
interest in the subject matter of the insurance, including Lessor,
are included therein as additional insureds and (b) losses are
payable under said insurance in the same manner as losses are
required to be payable under this Lease.  Lessee shall immediately
notify Lessor of the taking out of any such separate insurance or
of the increasing of any of the amounts of the then existing
insurance by securing an additional insurance policy or policies.

12.1.10  Assignment of Unearned Premiums.  Lessee hereby assigns to
Lessor all rights of Lessee in and to any unearned premiums
allocable to the Leased Property on any insurance policy required
hereunder to be furnished by Lessee which may become payable or are
refundable after the occurrence of a Lease Default hereunder.  In
the event that this Lease is terminated for any reason (other than
the purchase of the Leased Property by Lessee), the insurance
policies required to be maintained pursuant to subsections
12.1.1(a), (b), (c), (d) and (e) hereunder with respect to the
Leased Property or any portion of such insurance policies relating
to the Leased Premises, including all right, title and interest of
Lessee thereunder, shall become the absolute property of Lessor.  

12.2  Indemnity.

12.2.1  Indemnification.  Except with respect to the gross
negligence or wilful misconduct of Lessor or any of the other
Indemnified Parties and to any loss of reputation or diminution in
stock price suffered by Lessor or any of its Affiliates, as to
which no indemnity is provided, Lessee hereby agrees to defend with
counsel acceptable to Lessor, indemnify and hold harmless Lessor
and each of the other Indemnified Parties from and against all
direct and indirect damages, losses, claims, liabilities,
obligations, penalties, causes of action, costs and expenses
(including, without limitation, attorneys' fees, court costs and
other expenses of litigation) suffered by, or claimed or asserted
against, Lessor or any of the other Indemnified Parties directly or
indirectly, based on, arising out of or resulting from:  (a) the
use and occupancy of the Leased Property or any business conducted
therein, (b) any act, fault, omission to act or misconduct by any
member of the Leasing Group or any Affiliate of Lessee or any
employee, agent, licensee, business invitee, guest, customer,
contractor or sublessee of any of the foregoing parties, (c) any
accident, injury or damage whatsoever caused to any Person,
including without limitation any claim of malpractice, or to the
property of any Person in or about the Leased Property or outside
of the Leased Property where such accident, injury or damage

results or is claimed to have resulted from any act, fault,
omission to act or misconduct by any member of the Leasing Group or
any Affiliate of Lessee or any employee, agent, licensee,
contractor or sublessee of any of the foregoing parties, (d) any
default or breach of condition under any of the Lease Documents
(other than a default by Lessor in the performance of any of its
obligations thereunder), (e) Lessor's relationship with any member
of the Leasing Group, (f) Lessor being named, or required to be
named, as a co-licensee on any license and/or permit required
and/or desirable to operate all or any of the Facilities, (g) Lessee's
failure to renew, obtain and/or maintain all licenses
and/or permits required by all applicable Legal Requirements to
own, manage and operate the Facility, including, without
limitation, Lessee's failure to renew and/or obtain all such
licenses and/or permits required in connection with the transfer of
the Facility to Lessor, (h) any labor, services or materials
furnished or to be furnished to Lessee or Guarantor or any of their
respective Affiliates in connection with the Leased Property and/or
(i) the enforcement of this indemnity.  Any amounts which become
payable by Lessee under this Section 12.2.1 shall be a demand
obligation of Lessee to Lessor, payable as an Additional Charge. 
The indemnity provided for in this Section 12.2 shall survive the
expiration or any termination of this Lease.

12.2.2  Indemnified Parties.  As used in this Lease the term
"Indemnified Parties" shall mean Lessor, any Fee Mortgagee and
their respective Affiliates, successors, assigns, employees,
servants, agents, attorneys, officers, directors, shareholders,
partners and owners.

12.2.3  Limitation on Lessor Liability.  Neither Lessor nor any
Affiliate of Lessor shall be liable to any member of the Leasing
Group or any Affiliate of Lessee, or to any other Person whatsoever
for any damage, injury, loss, compensation, or claim (including,
but not limited to, any claim for the interruption of or loss to
any business conducted on the Leased Property) based on, arising
out of or resulting from any cause whatsoever, including, but not
limited to, the following: 
(a) repairs to the Leased Property; (b) interruption in use of the
Leased Property; (c) any accident or damage resulting from the use
or operation of the Leased Property or any business conducted
thereon; (d) the termination of this Lease by reason of Casualty or

Condemnation; (e) any fire, theft or other casualty or crime; (f)
the actions, omissions or misconduct of any other Person; (g)
damage to any property; or (h) any damage from the flow or leaking
of water, rain or snow.  All Tangible Personal Property and the
personal property of any other Person on the Leased Property
(including, without limitation, Lessor's Personal Property) shall
be at the sole risk of Lessee and Lessor shall not in any manner be
held responsible therefor.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lessor
shall not be released from liability for any injury, loss, damage
or liability suffered directly by Lessee to the extent caused
directly by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Lessor,
its servants, employees or agents acting within the scope of their
authority on or about the Leased Property or in regards to the
Lease; provided, however, that in no event shall Lessor, its
servants, employees or agents have any liability based on any loss
with respect to or interruption in the operation of any business at
the Leased Property or for any indirect or consequential damages.

12.2.4  Risk of Loss.  During the Term of this Lease, the risk of
loss or of decrease in the enjoyment and beneficial use of the
Leased Property in consequence of any damage or destruction thereof
by the elements, Casualty, thefts, riots, wars or otherwise, or in
consequence of foreclosures, levies or executions of Liens (other
than those created by Lessor in accordance with the provisions of
Article 20) is assumed by Lessee and, in the absence of the gross
negligence or willful misconduct as set forth in Section 12.2.3,
Lessor shall in no event be answerable or accountable therefor
(except for the obligation to account for insurance proceeds and
Awards to the extent provided for in Articles 13 and 14) nor shall
any of the events mentioned in this Section entitle Lessee to any
abatement of Rent (except for an abatement, if any, as specifically
provided for in Section 3.7).

Lessor and shall be accompanied by a written estimate from the
architect, bearing the architect's seal, of the entire cost of

exceed $50,000.00 (determined by Lessor in its reasonable
discretion), all proceeds relating thereto shall be paid to Lessee
in a lump sum to defray the cost of the repair or restoration
needed to respond to such loss or damage, provided that (a) there
does not exist an Event of Default under this Lease and (b) Lessee
has received no notice regarding an event or state of facts which,
with the passage of time and/or the giving of notice, would
constitute an Event of Default if not cured by Lessee, and Lessee
has not yet effected such cure.

certificates has been completed in compliance with the approved
Plans and Specifications, applicable Contract and all applicable

applicable Work Certificate to be due for services and materials,
there is no outstanding indebtedness known, after due inquiry,

become the basis of a vendor's, mechanic's, laborer's or
materialman's statutory or other similar Lien upon the Leased
Property.

(c)  Lessee shall deliver to Lessor satisfactory evidence that the
Leased Property and all materials and all property described in the
Work Certificates are free and clear of Liens, except (i) Liens, if
any, securing indebtedness due to Persons (whose names and
addresses and the several amounts due them shall be stated therein)
specified in an applicable Work Certificate, which Liens shall be
discharged upon disbursement of the funds then being requested,
(ii) any Fee Mortgage, (iii) the Permitted Encumbrances and (iv) as
otherwise provided pursuant to the provisions of Article 15
provided however Lessor may withhold any such property insurance
proceeds which are the subject of any contest involving the general
contractor or any subcontractor.  Lessor shall accept as
satisfactory evidence of the foregoing lien waivers in customary
form from the general contractor and all subcontractors performing
the Work, together with an endorsement of its title insurance
policy (relating to the Leased Property) in form acceptable to
Lessor, dated as of the date of the making of the disbursement,
confirming the foregoing.

(d)  If the Work involves alteration or restoration of the exterior
of any Leased Improvement, Lessee shall deliver to Lessor, upon the
request of Lessor, an "as-built" survey of the Leased Property
dated as of a date within ten (10) days prior to the making of the
first and final advances (or revised to a date within ten (10) days
prior to each such advance) showing no encroachments other than
such encroachments, if any, by the Leased Improvements upon or over
the Permitted Encumbrances as are in existence as of the date
hereof.

(e)  Lessee shall deliver to Lessor (i) an opinion of counsel or
licensed architect or engineer (satisfactory to Lessor both as to
counsel, architect or engineer and as to the form of opinion) prior
to the first advance opining that all necessary Permits for the
repair, replacement and/or restoration of the Work have been
obtained and  that the Work, if performed in accordance, in all
material respects, with the approved Plans and Specifications and
such Permits, shall comply with all applicable Legal Requirements
and (ii) an architect's certificate (satisfactory to Lessor both as

to the architect and as to the form of the certificate) prior to
the final advance, certifying that the Work was performed in
accordance, in all material respects, with the approved Plans and
Specifications and complies with all applicable Legal Requirements,
including, without limitation, all Permits referenced in the
foregoing clause (i).

(f)  There shall be no Lease Default or any state of facts or
circumstance existing which, with the giving of notice and/or the
passage of time, would constitute any Lease Default.

Lessor, at its option, may waive any of the foregoing requirements
in whole or in part in any instance.  Upon compliance by Lessee
with the foregoing requirements (except for such requirements, if
any, as Lessor may have expressly elected to waive), and to the
extent of (x) the insurance proceeds, if any, which Lessor may be
required to apply to restoration of the Leased Property pursuant to
the provisions of this Lease and (y) all other cash deposits made
by Lessee, Lessor shall make available for payment to the Persons
named in the Work Certificate(s) the respective amounts stated in
said Certificate(s) to be due, subject to a retention of ten
percent (10%) as to all hard costs of the Work (the "Retainage"). 
It is understood that the Retainage is intended to provide a
contingency fund to assure Lessor that the Work shall be fully
completed in accordance with the Plans and Specifications and the
requirements of Lessor.  Upon the full and final completion of all
of the Work in accordance with the provisions hereof, the Retainage
shall be made available for payment to those Persons entitled
thereto. 

Upon completion of the Work, and as a condition precedent to making
any further advance, in addition to the requirements set forth
above, Lessee shall promptly deliver to Lessor:

(i)  written certificates of the architect or engineer, bearing the
architect's or engineer's seal, and the general contractor,
certifying that the Work has been fully completed in a good and
workmanlike manner in material compliance with the Plans and
Specifications and all Legal Requirements;

(ii)  an endorsement of its title insurance policy (relating to the
Leased Property) in form reasonably acceptable to Lessor insuring
the Leased Property against all mechanic's and materialman's liens
accompanied by the final lien waivers from the general contractor
and all subcontractors except as otherwise provided pursuant to the
provisions of Article 15 provided however Lessor may withhold any
such property insurance proceeds which are the subject of any
contest involving the general or any subcontractor;

(iii)   a certificate by Lessee in form and substance reasonably
satisfactory to Lessor, listing all costs and expenses in
connection with the completion of the Work and the amount paid by
Lessee with respect to the Work; and 
(iv)  a temporary certificate of occupancy (if obtainable) and all
other applicable Permits and Contracts issued by or entered into
with any Governmental Authority with respect to the Leased Property
and the Primary Intended Use and, to the extent applicable, the
Other Permitted Uses and by the appropriate Board of Fire
Underwriters or other similar bodies acting in and for the locality
in which the Leased Property is situated; provided, that within
thirty (30) days after completion of the Work, Lessee shall obtain
and deliver to Lessor a permanent certificate of occupancy for the
Leased Property.

Upon completion of the Work and delivery of the documents required
pursuant to the provisions of this Section 13.1, Lessor shall pay
the Retainage to Lessee or to those Persons entitled thereto and if
there shall be insurance proceeds or cash deposits, other than the
Retainage, held by Lessor in excess of the amounts disbursed
pursuant to the foregoing provisions, then provided that no Lease
Default has occurred and is continuing, nor any state of facts or
circumstances has occurred which, with the giving of notice and/or
the passage of time could constitute a Lease Default, Lessor shall
pay over such proceeds or cash deposits to Lessee.

No inspections or any approvals of the Work during or after
construction shall constitute a warranty or representation by
Lessor, or any of its agents or Consultants, as to the technical
sufficiency, adequacy or safety of any structure or any of its
component parts, including, without limitation, any fixtures,
equipment or furnishings, or as to the subsoil conditions or any
other physical condition or feature pertaining to the Leased
Property.  All acts, including any failure to act, relating to
Lessor are performed solely for the benefit of Lessor to assure the
payment and performance of the Lease Obligations and are not for
the benefit of Lessee or the benefit of any other Person.

13.2  Disposition of Insurance Proceeds.

13.2.1  Proceeds To Be Released to Pay For Work.  In the event of
any Casualty, except as provided for in Section 13.2.2, Lessor
shall release proceeds of property insurance held by it to pay for
the Work in accordance with the provisions and procedures set forth
in this Article 13, only if:

(a)  all of the terms, conditions and provisions of Sections 13.1
and 13.2.1 are satisfied;

(b)  there does not then exist any Lease Default or any state of
facts or circumstance which, with the giving of notice and/or the
passage of time, would constitute such a Lease Default;

(c)  Lessee demonstrates to Lessor's satisfaction that Lessee has
the financial ability to satisfy the Lease Obligations during such
repair or restoration; and

(d)  no Sublease material to the operation of the Facility
immediately prior to such damage or taking shall have been
cancelled or terminated, nor contain any still exercisable right to
cancel or terminate, due to such Casualty if and to the extent that
the income from such Sublease is necessary in order to avoid the
violation of any of the financial covenants set forth in this Lease
or otherwise to avoid the creation of a Lease Default.

13.2.2  Proceeds Not To Be Released.  If, as the result of any
Casualty,  the Leased Property or the Facility is damaged to the
extent it is rendered Unsuitable For Its Primary Intended Use and
if either:  (a) Lessee, after exercise of diligent efforts, cannot
within a reasonable time (not in excess of ninety (90) days) obtain
all necessary Permits in order to be able to perform all required
Work and to again operate such Facility for its Primary Intended
Use and, to the extent applicable, the Other Permitted Uses within
two hundred and seventy (270) days from the occurrence of the
damage or destruction in substantially the manner as immediately
prior to such damage or destruction or (b) such Casualty occurs
during the last twenty-four (24) months of the Term and would
reasonably require more than nine (9) months to obtain all Permits
and complete the Work, then Lessee may either (i) acquire the
Leased Property from Lessor for a purchase price equal to the
greater of (x) the Meditrust Investment or (y) the Fair Market
Value of the Leased Property minus the Fair Market Added Value,
with the Fair Market Value and the Fair Market Added Value to be
determined as of the day immediately prior to such Casualty and
prior to any other Casualty which has not been fully repaired,
restored or replaced, in which event, Lessee shall be entitled upon
payment of the full purchase price to receive all property
insurance proceeds (less any costs and expenses incurred by Lessor
in collecting the same), or (ii) terminate this Lease, in which
event (subject to the provisions of the last sentence of this
Section 13.2.2) Lessor shall be entitled to receive and retain the
insurance proceeds; provided, however, that Lessee shall only have
such right of termination effective upon payment to Lessor of all
Rent and other sums due under this Lease and the other Lease
Documents through the date of termination plus an amount, which

when added to the sum of (1) the Fair Market Value of the Leased
Property as affected by all unrepaired or unrestored damage due to
any Casualty (and giving due regard for delays, costs and expenses
incident to completing all repair or restoration required to fully
repair or restore the same) plus (2) the amount of insurance
proceeds actually received by Lessor (net of costs and expenses
incurred by Lessor in collecting the same) equals (3) the greater
of the Meditrust Investment or the Fair Market Value of the Leased
Property minus the Fair Market Added Value, with the Fair Market
Value and the Fair Market Added Value to be determined as of the
day immediately prior to such Casualty and prior to any other
Casualty which has not been fully repaired.  Any acquisition of the
Leased Property pursuant to the terms of this Section 13.2.2 shall
be consummated in accordance with the provisions of Article 18,
mutatis, mutandis.  If such termination becomes effective, Lessor
shall assign to Lessee any outstanding insurance claims.

13.2.3  Lessee Responsible for Short-Fall.  If the cost of the Work
exceeds the amount of proceeds received by Lessor from the property
insurance required under Article 12 (net of costs and expenses
incurred by Lessor in collecting the same), Lessee shall be
obligated to contribute any excess amount needed to repair or
restore the Leased Property and pay for the Work.  Such amount
shall be paid by Lessee to Lessor together with any other property
insurance proceeds for application to the cost of the Work.

13.3  Tangible Personal Property.  All insurance proceeds payable
by reason of any loss of or damage to any of the Tangible Personal
Property shall be paid to Lessor as secured party, subject to the
rights of the holders of any Permitted Prior Security Interests,
and, thereafter, provided that no Lease Default, nor any fact or
circumstance which with the giving of notice and/or the passage of
time could constitute a Lease Default, has occurred and is
continuing, Lessor shall pay such insurance proceeds to Lessee to
reimburse Lessee for the cost of repairing or replacing the damaged
Tangible Personal Property, subject to the terms and conditions set
forth in the other provisions of this Article 13, mutatis mutandis.

13.4  Restoration of Certain Improvements and the Tangible Personal
Property.  If Lessee is required or elects to restore the Leased
Property, Lessee shall either (a) restore (i) all alterations and
improvements made by Lessee, (ii) the Tangible Personal Property
and (iii) Lessor's Personal Property or (b) replace such
alterations and improvements, the Tangible Personal Property and
Lessor's Personal Property with improvements or items of the same
or better quality and utility in the operation of the Leased
Property.

13.5  No Abatement of Rent.  In no event shall any Rent abate as a
result of any Casualty.

13.6  Termination of Certain Rights.  Any termination of this Lease
pursuant to this Article 13 shall cause any right of Lessee to
extend the Term of this Lease, and any right of Lessee to purchase
the Leased Property contained in this Lease to be terminated and to
be without further force or effect.

13.7  Waiver.  Lessee hereby waives any statutory rights of
termination which may arise by reason of any damage or destruction
to the Leased Property due to any Casualty which Lessee is
obligated to restore or may restore under any of the provisions of
this Lease.

13.8  Application of Business Interruption Insurance.  All proceeds
of business interruption insurance (collectively, "Rent Insurance
Proceeds") shall be paid to Lessor and dealt with as follows:

(a)  if the Work has been promptly and diligently commenced by
Lessee and is in the process of being completed in accordance with
this Lease and no fact or condition exists which constitutes, or
which with the giving of notice and/or the passage of time would
constitute, a Lease Default, Lessor shall each month pay to Lessee
out of the Rent Insurance Proceeds a sum equal to that amount, if
any, of the Rent Insurance Proceeds paid by the insurer which is
allocable to the rental loss and/or business interruption for the
preceding month minus an amount equal to the sum of the Rent due
hereunder for such month plus any Impositions relating to the
Leased Property then due and payable;

(b)  if the Work has not been promptly and diligently commenced by
Lessee or is not in the process of being completed in accordance
with this Lease, such proceeds shall be applied to any Rent then
due, and, to the extent sufficient therefor, an amount equal to
Base Rent, Impositions and insurance premiums payable for the next
twelve (12) months, as reasonably projected by Lessor, shall be
held by Lessor as security for the Lease Obligations and applied to
the payment of Rent as it becomes due; and

(c)  if such Rent Insurance Proceeds received by Lessor (net of
costs and expenses incurred by Lessor in collecting the same)
exceed the amounts required under clauses (a) and (b) above, the
excess shall be paid to Lessee, provided no fact or circumstance
exists which constitutes, or with notice, or passage of time, or
both, would constitute, a Lease Default.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lessor may at its option use or
release such insurance proceeds to pay for the Work and, if a Lease
Default exists, Lessor may apply all such insurance proceeds
towards the Lease Obligations or hold such proceeds as security
therefor.

13.9  Obligation To Account.  Upon Lessee's written request, which
may not be made not more than once in any three (3) month period,
Lessor shall provide Lessee with a  written accounting of the
application of all insurance proceeds received by Lessor.

ARTICLE 14

CONDEMNATION

14.1  Parties' Rights and Obligations.  If during the Term there is
any Taking of all or any part of the Leased Property or any
interest in this Lease, the rights and obligations of the parties
shall be determined by this Article 14.

14.2  Total Taking.  If there is a permanent Taking of all or
substantially all of the Leased Property, this Lease shall
terminate on the Date of Taking.

14.3  Partial or Temporary Taking.  If there is a Permanent Taking
of a portion of the Leased Property (but not substantially all of
the Leased Property or the Facility as provided above in Section 14.2), 
Or if there is a temporary Taking of all or a
portion of the Leased Property, this Lease shall remain in effect
so long as the Facility is not thereby rendered permanently
Unsuitable For Its Primary Intended Use or temporarily Unsuitable
For Its Primary Intended Use for a period not likely to, or which
does not, exceed two hundred and seventy (270) days.  If, however,
the Facility is thereby so rendered permanently or temporarily
Unsuitable For Its Primary Intended Use:
 
(a) Lessee shall have the right to restore any the Facility, at its
own expense (subject to the right under certain circumstances as
provided for in Section 14.5 to receive the net proceeds of an
Award for reimbursement), to the extent possible, to substantially
the same condition as existed immediately before the partial or
temporary Taking or (b) Lessee shall have the right to acquire the
entire Leased Property from Lessor (i) upon payment of all Rent due
through the date that the purchase price is paid, for a purchase
price equal to the greater of (x) the Meditrust Investment or (y)
the Fair Market Value of the Leased Property minus the Fair Market
Added Value, with the Fair Market Value of the Leased Property and

the Fair Market Added Value to be determined as of the day
immediately prior to such partial or temporary Taking and (ii) in
accordance with the applicable terms and conditions set forth in
Article 18; in which event, this Lease shall terminate upon payment
of such purchase price and the consummation of such acquisition. 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lessor may overrule Lessee's
election under clause (a) or (b) and instead either (1) terminate
this Lease as of the date when Lessee is required to surrender
possession of the portion of the Leased Property so taken or (2)
compel Lessee to keep the Lease in full force and effect and to
restore the Leased Property as provided in clause (a) above, but
only if the Facility may be operated for at least eighty percent
(80%) of the licensed unit capacity of such Facility in effect
prior to the Taking.  Lessee shall exercise its election under this
Section 14.3 by giving Lessor notice thereof ("Lessee's Election
Notice") within sixty (60) days after Lessee receives notice of the
Taking.  Lessor shall exercise its option to overrule Lessee's
election under this Section 14.3 by giving Lessee notice of
Lessor's exercise of its rights under Section 14.3 within thirty
(30) days after Lessor receives Lessee's Election Notice.  If, as
the result of any such partial or temporary Taking, this Lease is
not terminated as provided above, Lessee shall be entitled to
abatement of Rent, but only to the extent, if any, provided for in
Section 3.7, effective as of the date upon which the Facility or
portion thereof is rendered Unsuitable For Its Primary Intended
Use.

14.4  Restoration.  If there is a partial or temporary Taking of
the Leased Property and this Lease remains in full force and effect
pursuant to Section 14.3, Lessee shall accomplish all necessary
restoration and Lessor shall release the net proceeds of such Award
to reimburse Lessee for the actual reasonable costs and expenses
thereof, subject to all of the conditions and provisions set forth
in Article 13 relating to insurance proceeds as though the Taking
was a Casualty and the Award was insurance proceeds.  If the cost
of the restoration exceeds the amount of the Award (net of costs
and expenses incurred in obtaining the Award), Lessee shall be
obligated to contribute any excess amount needed to restore the
Facility or pay for such costs and expenses.

14.5  Award Distribution.  In the event Lessee completes the
purchase of the Leased Property, as described in Section 14.3, the
entire Award shall, upon payment of the purchase price and all Rent
and other sums due under this Lease and the other Lease Documents,
belong to Lessee and Lessor agrees to assign to Lessee all of
Lessor's rights thereto.  In any other event, the entire Award
shall belong to and be paid to Lessor.

14.6  Control of Proceedings.  Subject to the rights of any Fee
Mortgagee, unless and until Lessee completes the purchase of the
Leased Property as provided in Section 14.3, all proceedings
involving any Taking and the prosecution of claims arising out of
any Taking against the Condemnor shall be conducted, prosecuted and
settled by Lessor; provided, however, that Lessor shall keep Lessee
apprised of the progress of all such proceedings and shall solicit
Lessee's advice with respect thereto and shall give due
consideration to any such advice.  In addition, Lessee shall
reimburse Lessor (as an Additional Charge) for all costs and
expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, appraisal fees,
fees of expert witnesses and costs of litigation or dispute
resolution, in relation to any Taking, whether or not this Lease is
terminated; provided, however, if this Lease is terminated as a
result of a Taking, Lessee's obligation to so reimburse Lessor
shall be diminished by the amount of the Award, if any, received by
Lessor which is in excess of the Meditrust Investment.

ARTICLE 15

PERMITTED CONTESTS

15.1  Lessee's Right to Contest.  To the extent of the express
references made to this Article 15 in other Sections of this Lease,
Lessee, any Sublessee or any Manager on their own or on Lessor's
behalf (or in Lessor's name), but at their sole cost and expense,
may contest, by appropriate legal proceedings conducted in good
faith and with due diligence (until the resolution thereof), the
amount, validity or application, in whole or in part, of any
Imposition, Legal Requirement, the decision of any Governmental
Authority related to the operation of the Leased Property for its
Primary Intended Use and, to the extent applicable, any of the
Other Permitted Uses or any Lien or claim relating to the Leased
Property not otherwise permitted by this Agreement; provided, that
(a) prior written notice of such contest is given to Lessor, (b) in
the case of an unpaid Imposition, Lien or claim, the commencement
and continuation of such proceedings shall suspend the collection
thereof from Lessor and compliance by Lessee, any Sublessee and/or
any Manager with the contested Legal Requirement or other matter
may be legally delayed pending the prosecution of any such
proceeding without the occurrence or creation of any Lien, charge
or liability of any kind against the Leased Property, (c) neither
the Leased Property nor any Rent therefrom nor any part thereof or
interest therein would be in any immediate danger of being sold,
forfeited, attached or lost, (d) in the case of a Legal Requirement
or decision of Governmental Authority, Lessor would not be in any

immediate danger of civil or criminal liability for failure to
comply therewith pending the outcome of such proceedings, (e) in
the event that any such contest shall involve a sum of money or
potential loss in excess of TEN THOUSAND and NO/100 DOLLARS
($10,000.00), Lessee shall deliver to Lessor an Officer's
Certificate and opinion of counsel, if Lessor deems the delivery of
an opinion to be appropriate, certifying or opining, as the case
may be, as to the validity of the statements set forth in clauses
(b), (c) and (d), to the extent applicable, (f) Lessee shall give
such cash security as may be demanded in good faith by Lessor to
insure ultimate payment of any fine, penalty, interest or cost and
to prevent any sale or forfeiture of the affected portion of the
Leased Property by reason of such non-payment or non-compliance,
(g) if such contest is finally resolved against Lessor, Lessee, any
Sublessee and/or any Manager, Lessee shall promptly pay, as
Additional Charges due hereunder, the amount required to be paid,
together with all interest and penalties accrued thereon and/or
comply (and cause any Sublessee and any Manager to comply) with the
applicable Legal Requirement or decision, and (h) no fact or
condition exists which constitutes, or with the passage of time
and/or the giving of notice, could constitute a Lease Default;
provided, however, the provisions of this Article 15 shall not be
construed to permit Lessee to contest the payment of Rent or any
other sums payable by Lessee to Lessor under any of the Lease
Documents. 

15.2  Lessor's Cooperation.  Lessor, at Lessee's sole cost and
expense, shall execute and deliver to Lessee such authorizations
and other documents as may reasonably be required in any such
contest, so long as the same does not expose Lessor to any civil or
criminal liability, and, if reasonably requested by Lessee or if
Lessor so desires, Lessor shall join as a party therein.

15.3  Lessee's Indemnity.  Lessee, as more particularly provided
for in Section 12.2, shall indemnify, defend (with counsel
acceptable to Lessor) and save Lessor harmless against any
liability, cost or expense of any kind, including, without
limitation, attorneys' fees and expenses that may be imposed upon
Lessor in connection with any such contest and any loss resulting
therefrom and in the enforcement of this indemnification.


ARTICLE 16

"Event of Default" or "Lease Default" hereunder and shall entitle
Lessor to exercise its remedies hereunder and under any of the

any of the other Lease Documents within ten (10) days following the
date when such payment was due;

respect to such matters, (i) Lessee commences the cure thereof
within thirty (30) days after the giving of such notice by Lessor
to Lessee, (ii) Lessee continuously prosecutes such cure to
completion, (iii) such cure is completed within ninety (90) days

(c)  the occurrence of any default or breach of condition
continuing beyond the expiration of the applicable notice and grace
periods, if any, under any of the other Lease Documents, including,
without limitation, the Agreement Regarding Related Transactions,

other Lease Documents is different than that provided herein, the
grace period provided herein shall control, or if no grace period

(g)  if a petition is filed against any member of the Leasing Group
which seeks relief under the bankruptcy or other similar laws of
the United States, any state or any other jurisdiction, and such
petition is not dismissed within sixty (60) days after it is filed; 

(h)  in the event that, without the prior written consent of
Lessor, in each instance, which consent may be withheld by Lessor
in its sole and absolute discretion: (i) there shall be a change in

applicable creditor or obligee elects to declare the obligations of
Lessee or the applicable Sublessee under the applicable agreement
due and payable or to exercise any other right or remedy available
to such creditor or obligee, if such creditor's or obligee's rights
and remedies may involve or result in (i) the taking of possession

remedy that, in Lessor's reasonable opinion, may impair Lessee's
ability punctually to perform all of its obligations under this
Lease and the other Lease Documents, may impair such Sublessee's
ability punctually to perform all of its obligations under its
Sublease or may materially impair Lessor's security for the Lease
Obligations; provided, however, that in any event, the election by
the applicable creditor or obligee to declare the obligations of
Lessee or such Sublessee under the applicable agreement due and
payable or to exercise any other right or remedy available to such
creditor or obligee shall be a Lease Default hereunder only if such
obligations, individually or in the aggregate, are in excess of ONE
HUNDRED THOUSAND and NO/100 DOLLARS ($100,000.00);

(l)  the occurrence of a Related Party Default, including, without

Meditrust Entities;

(m)  the occurrence of any default or breach of condition
continuing beyond the expiration of the applicable notice and grace
periods, if any, under any credit agreement, loan agreement or
other agreement establishing a major line of credit (or any

applicable creditor has elected to declare the indebtedness due and
payable under such line of credit or to exercise any other right or
remedy available to it.  For the purposes of this provision, (1)
a major line of credit shall mean and include any line of credit
established in an amount equal to or greater than FIVE HUNDRED
THOUSAND and NO/100 DOLLARS ($500,000.00) and (2) any such major
line of credit of Guarantor shall relate primarily to the Leased
Property; 

(n)  except as a result of Casualty or a partial or complete
Condemnation, if Lessee or any Sublessee ceases operation of the
Facility for a period in excess of thirty (30) days (a "Failure
to Operate"); 

(o)  if one or more judgments against Lessee or any Sublessee or
attachments against Lessee's interest or any Sublessee's interest
in the Leased Property, which in the aggregate exceed ONE HUNDRED
THOUSAND and NO/100 DOLLARS ($100,000.00) or which may materially
and adversely interfere with the operation of the Facility, remain
unpaid, unstayed on appeal, undischarged, unbonded or undismissed
for a period of thirty (30) days; 

(p)  if any malpractice award or judgment exceeding any applicable
professional liability insurance coverage by more than FIVE HUNDRED
THOUSAND and NO/100 DOLLARS ($500,000.00) shall be rendered against
any member of the Leasing Group and either (i) enforcement
proceedings shall have been commenced by any creditor upon such
award or judgment or (ii) such award or judgment shall continue
unsatisfied and in effect for a period of ten (10) consecutive days
without an insurance company satisfactory to Lessor (in its sole
and absolute discretion) having agreed to fund such award or
judgment in a manner satisfactory to Lessor (in its sole and
absolute discretion) and in either case such award or judgment
shall, in the reasonable opinion of Lessor, have a material adverse
affect on the ability of Lessee or any Sublessee to operate
the Facility; 

(q)  if any Provider Agreement material to the operation or
financial condition of any member of the Leasing Group shall be
terminated prior to the expiration of the term thereof or, without
the prior written consent of Lessor, in each instance, which
consent may be withheld in Lessor's reasonable discretion, shall
not be renewed or extended upon the expiration of the stated term
thereof; 

(r)  if, after Lessee or any Sublessee has obtained approval for
Medicare and/or Medicaid funding, a final unappealable
determination is made by the applicable Governmental Authority that
Lessee or any Sublessee shall have failed to comply with applicable
Medicare and/or Medicaid regulations in the operation of the
Facility, as a result of which failure Lessee or such Sublessee is
declared ineligible to receive reimbursements under the Medicare
and/or Medicaid programs and such reimbursements are material to
the operation or financial condition of any member of the Leasing
Group;

(s)  if Lessee or any Sublessee receives notice of a final
unappealable determination by applicable Governmental  Authorities
of the revocation of any Permit required for the lawful
construction or operation of the Facility in accordance with the
Primary Intended Use and, to the extent applicable, any of the
Other Permitted Uses or the loss of any Permit under any other
circumstances under which Lessee or such Sublessee is required to
cease the construction or operation of the Facility in accordance
with the Primary Intended Use; 

(t)  any failure to maintain the insurance required pursuant to
Section 12 of this Lease in force and effect at all times until the
Lease Obligations are fully paid and performed; or

(u)  the entry of a final unappealable order by a court with
jurisdiction over the Leased Property to close the Facility, to
transfer one or more residents from the Facility as a result of an
allegation of abuse or neglect or to take any action to eliminate
an emergency situation then existing at the Facility.

16.1  Remedies.

(a)  If any Lease Default shall have occurred, Lessor may at its
option terminate this Lease by giving Lessee not less than ten (10)
days' notice of such termination, or exercise any one or more of
its rights and remedies under this Lease, or the other Lease
Documents, or as available at law or in equity and upon the
expiration of the time fixed in such notice, the Term shall
terminate (but only if Lessor shall have specifically elected by a
written notice to so terminate the Lease) and all rights of Lessee
under this Lease shall cease.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, in
the event of Lessee's failure to pay Rent, if such Rent remains
unpaid beyond ten (10) days from the due date thereof, Lessor shall
not be obligated to give ten (10) days notice of such termination
or exercise of any of its other rights and remedies under this
Lease, or the other Lease Documents, or otherwise available at law
or in equity, and Lessor shall be at liberty to pursue any one or
more of such rights or remedies without further notice.  No taking
of possession of the Leased Property by or on behalf of  Lessor,
and no other act done by or on behalf of Lessor, shall constitute
an acceptance of surrender of the Leased Property by Lessee or
reduce Lessee's obligations under this Lease or the other Lease
Documents, unless otherwise expressly agreed to in a written
document signed by an authorized officer or agent of Lessor.

(b)  To the extent permitted under applicable law, Lessee shall pay
as Additional Charges all costs and expenses (including, without
limitation, attorneys' fee and expenses) reasonably  incurred by or
on behalf of Lessor as a result of any Lease Default.

(c)  If any Lease Default shall have occurred, whether or not this
Lease has been terminated pursuant to Paragraph (a) of this
Section, Lessee shall, to the extent permitted under applicable
law, if required by Lessor so to do, upon not less than ten (10)
days' prior notice from Lessor, immediately surrender to Lessor the
Leased Property pursuant to the provisions of Paragraph (a) of this
Section and quit the same, and Lessor may enter upon and repossess
the Leased Property by reasonable force, summary proceedings,
ejectment or otherwise, and may remove Lessee and all other Persons
and any and all of the Tangible Personal Property from the Leased
Property, subject to the rights of any residents of the Facility
and any Sublessees who are not Affiliates of any member of the
Leasing Group and to any requirements of applicable law, or Lessor
may claim ownership of the Tangible Personal Property as set forth
in Section 5.2.3 hereof or Lessor may exercise its rights as
secured party under the Security Agreement.  Lessor shall use
reasonable, good faith efforts to relet the Leased Property or
otherwise mitigate damages suffered by Lessor as a result of
Lessee's breach of this Lease.

(d)  In addition to all of the rights and remedies of Lessor set
forth in this Lease and the other Lease Documents, if Lessee shall
fail to pay any rental or other charge due hereunder (whether
denominated as Base Rent or otherwise) within ten (10) days after
same shall have become due and payable, then and in such event
Lessee shall also pay to Lessor (i) a late payment service charge
(in order to partially defray Lessor's administrative and other
overhead expenses) equal to two hundred-fifty and NO/100 ($250.00)
dollars and (ii) to the extent permitted by applicable law,
interest on such unpaid sum at the Overdue Rate; it being
understood, however, that nothing herein shall be deemed to extend
the due date for payment of any sums required to be paid by Lessee
hereunder or to relieve Lessee of its obligation to pay such sums
at the time or times required by this Lease.

16.3  Damages.  None of (a) the termination of this Lease pursuant
to Section 16.2, (b) the eviction of Lessee or the repossession of
the Leased Property, (c) the failure of Lessor, notwithstanding
reasonable good faith efforts, to relet the Leased Property, (d)
the reletting of the Leased Property or (e) the failure of Lessor
to collect or receive any rentals due upon any such reletting,
shall relieve Lessee of its liability and obligations hereunder,
all of which shall survive any such termination, repossession or
reletting.  In any such event, Lessee shall forthwith pay to Lessor
all Rent due and payable with respect to the Leased Property to and
including the date of such termination, repossession or eviction. 
Thereafter, Lessee shall forthwith pay to Lessor, at Lessor's
option, either:

(i)  the sum of: (x) all Rent that is due and unpaid at later to
occur of termination, repossession or eviction, together with
interest thereon at the Overdue Rate to the date of payment, plus
(y) the worth (calculated in the manner stated below) of the amount
by which the unpaid Rent for the balance of the Term after the
later to occur of the termination, repossession or eviction exceeds
the fair market rental value of the Leased Property for the balance
of the Term, plus (z) any other amount necessary to compensate
Lessor for all damage proximately caused by Lessee's failure to
perform the Lease Obligations or which in the ordinary course would
be likely to result therefrom;
or

(ii)  each payment of Rent as the same would have become due and
payable if Lessee's right of possession or other rights under this
Lease had not been terminated, or if Lessee had not been evicted,
or if the Leased Property had not been repossessed which Rent, to
the extent permitted by law, shall bear interest at the Overdue
Rate from the date when due until paid, and Lessor may enforce, by
action or otherwise, any other term or covenant of this Lease. 
There shall be credited against Lessee's obligation under this
Clause (ii) amounts actually collected by Lessor from another
tenant to whom the Leased Property may have actually been leased
or, if Lessor is operating the Leased Property for its own account,
the actual Cash Flow of the Leased Property.

In making the determinations described in subparagraph (i) above,
the "worth" of unpaid Rent shall be determined by a court having
jurisdiction thereof using the lowest rate of capitalization
(highest present worth) reasonably applicable at the time of such
determination and allowed by applicable law.

For the purposes of this Lease, the use of the word "termination"
shall mean either "termination" or "cancellation" as such words are
defined in the UCC.

16.4  Lessee Waivers.  If this Lease is terminated pursuant to
Section 16.2, Lessee waives, to the extent not prohibited by
applicable law, (a) any right of redemption, re-entry or
repossession, (b) any right to a trial by jury in the event of
summary proceedings to enforce the remedies set forth in this
Article 16, and (c) the benefit of any laws now or hereafter in
force exempting property from liability for rent or for debt.

In the event Lessor may elect to regain possession of the Leased
Property by a forcible detainer proceeding, Lessee hereby
specifically waives any statutory notice which may be required

prior to any such proceeding, and agrees that Lessor's execution of
this Lease is, in part, consideration for this waiver.  Except as
otherwise set forth herein, Lessee further waives any demand for
Rent, notice of termination and any notice to quit required
pursuant to Oklahoma statutes, Kansas statutes or otherwise and
agrees that Lessor's execution of this Lease is, in part,
consideration for these waivers.

All claims for damages by reason of re-entry and/or repossession
and/or alteration of locks or other security devices are hereby
waived, as are all claims for damages by reason of any distress
warrant, forcible detainer proceedings, sequestration proceedings
or other legal process.  Lessee agrees that any re-entry by Lessor
may be pursuant to judgment obtained in forcible detainer
proceedings or other legal proceedings or without the necessity for
any legal proceedings, as Lessor may elect, and Lessor shall not be
liable in trespass or otherwise.

Lessee shall not interpose any counterclaim of any kind in any
action or proceeding commenced by Lessor to recover possession of
the Leased Property.  In the event Lessee violates this provision,
the parties stipulate that any such counterclaim shall be severed
and tried separately from the action for eviction pursuant to
Florida Rules of Civil Procedure 1.270(b) or other applicable law. 
The eviction action shall proceed pursuant to the summary
procedures set forth in Florida Statues 51.011.  Additionally,
Lessee shall comply with Florida Statutes 83.232.

In any distress for rent action filed by Lessor against Lessee,
Lessee waives all constitutional, statutory or common law bonding
requirements, including the requirement under Florida Statutes
83.12, that Lessor file a bond payable to Lessee in at least
double the sum demanded by Lessor.  Lessee specifically agrees that
no bond shall be required in any such action and Lessee further
waives the right under Florida Status 83.14, to replevin
distrained property.

16.5  Application of Funds.  Any payments otherwise payable to
Lessee which are received by Lessor under any of the provisions of
this Lease during the existence or continuance of any Lease Default
shall be applied to the Lease Obligations in the order which Lessor
may reasonably determine or as may be required by the laws of the
State.

16.6  [Intentionally Omitted].

16.7  [Intentionally Omitted].

16.8  Lessor's Right to Cure.  If Lessee shall fail to make any
payment, or to perform any act required to be made or performed
under this Lease or the other Lease Documents and to cure the same
within the relevant time periods provided in Section 16.1, Lessor,
after five (5) Business Days' prior notice to Lessee (except in an
emergency when such shorter notice shall be given as is reasonable
under the circumstances), and without waiving or releasing any
obligation or Lease Default, may (but shall be under no obligation
to) at any time thereafter make such payment or perform such act
for the account and at the expense of Lessee, and may, to the
extent permitted by law, enter upon the Leased Property for such
purpose and take all such action thereon as, in Lessor's opinion,
may be necessary or appropriate therefor.  No such entry shall be
deemed an eviction of Lessee.  All sums so paid by Lessor and all
costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable
attorneys' fees and expenses, in each case, to the extent permitted
by law) so incurred shall be paid by Lessee to Lessor on demand as
an Additional Charge.  The obligations of Lessee and rights of
Lessor contained in this Article shall survive the expiration or
earlier termination of this Lease.

16.9  No Waiver By Lessor.  Lessor shall not by any act, delay,
omission or otherwise (including, without limitation, the exercise
of any right or remedy hereunder) be deemed to have waived any of
its right or remedies hereunder or under any of the other Lease
Documents unless such waiver is in writing and signed by Lessor,
and then, only to the extent specifically set forth therein. 
No waiver at any time of any of the terms, conditions, covenants,
representations or warranties set forth in any of the Lease
Documents (including, without limitation, any of the time periods
set forth therein for the performance of the Lease Obligations)
shall be construed as a waiver of any other term, condition,
covenant, representation or warranty of any of the Lease Documents,
nor shall such a waiver in any one instance or circumstances be
construed as a waiver of the same term, condition, covenant,
representation or warranty in any subsequent instance or
circumstance.  No such failure, delay or waiver shall be construed
as creating a requirement that Lessor must thereafter, as a result
of such failure, delay or waiver, give notice to Lessor or any
Guarantor, or any other Person that Lessor does not intend to, or
may not, give a further waiver or to refrain from insisting upon
the strict performance of the terms, conditions, covenants,
representations and warranties set forth in the Lease Documents
before Lessor can exercise any of its rights or remedies under any
of the Lease Documents or before any Lease Default can occur, or as
establishing a course of dealing for interpreting the conduct of
and agreements between Lessor and Lessee, the Guarantor or any
other Person.

The acceptance by Lessor of any payment that is less than payment
in full of all amounts then due under any of the Lease Documents at
the time of the making of such payment shall not: (a) constitute a
waiver of the right to exercise any of Lessor's remedies at that
time or at any subsequent time, (b) constitute an accord and
satisfaction or (c) nullify any prior exercise of any remedy,
without the express written consent of Lessor.  Any failure by
Lessor to take any action under this Lease or any of the other
Lease Documents by reason of a default hereunder or thereunder,
acceptance of a past due installment, or indulgences granted from
time to time shall not be construed as a novation of this Lease or
any of the other Lease Documents or as a waiver of such right or of
the right of Lessor thereafter to insist upon strict compliance
with the terms of this Lease or any of the other Lease Documents,
or (d) to prevent the exercise of such right of acceleration or any
other right granted hereunder or under applicable law; and to the
maximum extent not prohibited by applicable law, Lessor hereby
expressly waives the benefit of any statute or rule of law or
equity now provided, or which may hereafter be provided, which
would produce a result contrary to or in conflict with the
foregoing.

16.10  Right of Forbearance.  Whether or not for consideration paid
or payable to Lessor and, except as may be otherwise specifically
agreed to by Lessor in writing, no forbearance on the part of
Lessor, no extension of the time for the payment of the whole or
any part of the Obligations, and no other indulgence given by
Lessor to Lessee or any other Person, shall operate to release or
in any manner affect the original liability of Lessee or such other
Persons, or to limit, prejudice or impair any right of Lessor,
including, without limitation, the right to realize upon any
Collateral, or any part thereof, for any of the Obligations; notice
of any such extension, forbearance or indulgence being hereby
waived by Lessee and all those claiming by, through or under
Lessee. 

16.11  Cumulative Remedies.  The rights and remedies set forth
under this Lease are in addition to all other rights and remedies
afforded to Lessor under any of the other Lease Documents or at law
or in equity, all of which are hereby reserved by Lessor, and this
Lease is made and accepted without prejudice to any such rights and
remedies.  All of the rights and remedies of Lessor under each of
the Lease Documents shall be separate and cumulative and may be
exercised concurrently or successively in Lessor's sole and
absolute discretion.


ARTICLE 17

SURRENDER OF LEASED PROPERTY OR LEASE; HOLDING OVER

17.1  Surrender.  Lessee shall, upon the expiration or prior
termination of the Term, vacate and surrender the Leased Property
to Lessor in good repair and condition, in compliance with all
Legal Requirements, all Insurance Requirements, and in compliance
with the provisions of Article 8 except for: (a) ordinary wear and
tear (subject to the obligation of Lessee to maintain the Leased
Property in good order and repair during the entire Term of the
Lease); (b) damage caused by the gross negligence or willful acts
of Lessor; and (c) any damage or destruction resulting from a
Casualty or Taking that Lessee is not required by the terms of this
Lease to repair or restore. 

17.2  Transfer of Contracts and Permits.  In connection with the
expiration or earlier termination of this Lease, Lessee shall use
its best efforts to transfer and assign to Lessor or its designee,
and shall assist Lessor or its designee in obtaining, any Contracts
and Permits required for the operation of the Facility.  The
provisions of this Section 17.2 shall survive the expiration or
earlier termination of this Lease.

17.3  Management of Leased Property.  Upon the expiration or
earlier termination of the Term, Lessor or its designee, upon
written notice to Lessee, may elect to assume the responsibilities
and obligations for the management and operation of the Leased
Property and Lessee agrees to cooperate fully with Lessor or its
designee to accomplish the transfer of such management and
operation without interrupting the operation of the Leased
Property.  Lessee shall not commit an act or be remiss in the
undertaking of any act that would jeopardize the licensure or
certification of the Facility, and Lessee shall comply with all
requests by Lessor for possession of the Facility at the time of
any such surrender.  Upon the expiration or earlier termination of
the Term, Lessee shall promptly deliver copies of all of Lessee's
books and records relating to the Leased Property and its
operations to Lessor.

17.4  Correction of Deficiencies.  Upon termination or cancellation
of this Lease, Lessee hereby indemnifies Lessor for any loss,
damage, cost or expense incurred by Lessor to correct all
deficiencies of a physical nature identified by any applicable
Government Authorities in the course of the change of ownership,
inspection and audit, normal wear and tear excluded.

17.5  No Acceptance of Surrender.  Except at the expiration of the
Term in the ordinary course, no surrender to Lessor of this Lease
or of the Leased Property or any interest therein shall be valid or
effective unless agreed to and accepted in writing by Lessor and no
act by Lessor or any representative or agent of Lessor, other than
such a written acceptance by Lessor, shall constitute an acceptance
of any such surrender.

17.6  Holding Over.  If, for any reason, Lessee shall remain in
possession of the Leased Property after the expiration or any
earlier termination of the Term, such possession shall be as a
tenant at sufferance during which time Lessee shall pay as rental
each month, one and one-half times the aggregate of (i) one-twelfth
of the aggregate Base Rent payable with respect to the last
complete Fiscal Year prior to the expiration or earlier termination
of the Term; (ii) all Additional Charges accruing during the month
and (iii) all other sums, if any, payable by Lessee pursuant to the
provisions of this Lease with respect to the Leased Property.  
During such period of tenancy, Lessee shall be obligated to perform
and observe all of the terms, covenants and conditions of this
Lease, but shall have no rights hereunder other than the right, to
the extent given by law to tenants at sufferance, to continue its
occupancy and use of the Leased Property.  Nothing contained herein
shall constitute the consent, express or implied, of Lessor to the
holding over of Lessee after the expiration or earlier termination
of this Lease.

ARTICLE 18

PURCHASE OF THE LEASED PROPERTY

18.1  Purchase of the Leased Property.  In the event Lessee
purchases all or a portion of the Leased Property from Lessor
pursuant to any of the terms of this Lease, Lessor shall, upon
receipt from Lessee of the applicable purchase price, together with
full payment of any unpaid Rent due and payable with respect to any
period ending on or before the date of the purchase, deliver to
Lessee an appropriate special warranty deed conveying the entire
interest of Lessor in and to the Leased Property or the applicable
portion thereof to Lessee subject to the Lease, all Legal
Requirements, all of the matters described in clauses (a), (b), (e)
and (g) of Section 11.5.2, Impositions, any Liens created by
Lessee, any Liens in accordance with the terms of this Lease or
consented to by Lessee, the claims of all Persons claiming by
through or under Lessee, any other matters assented to by Lessee
and all matters for which Lessee has responsibility under any of

the Lease Documents, but otherwise not subject to any other Lien
created by Lessor (other than an Encumbrance permitted under
Article 20 which Lessee elects to assume).  The applicable purchase
price shall be paid in cash to Lessor, or as Lessor may direct, in
federal or other immediately available funds except as otherwise
mutually agreed by Lessor and Lessee.  All expenses of such
conveyance, including, without limitation, the cost of title
examination or standard coverage title insurance, attorneys' fees
incurred by Lessor in connection with such conveyance, recording
and transfer taxes and recording fees and similar charges shall be
paid by Lessee.

18.2  Appraisal.

18.2.1  Designation of Appraisers.  In the event that it becomes
necessary to determine the Fair Market Value of all or a portion of
the Leased Property for any purpose of this Lease, the party
required or permitted to give notice of such required determination
shall include in the notice the name of a Person selected to act as
appraiser on its behalf.  Within ten (10) days after receipt of any
such notice, Lessor (or Lessee, as the case may be) shall by notice
to Lessee (or Lessor, as the case may be) appoint a second Person
as appraiser on its behalf.

18.2.2  Appraisal Process.  The appraisers thus appointed, each of
whom must be a member of the American Institute of Real Estate
Appraisers (or any successor organization thereto), shall, within
thirty (30) days after the date of the notice appointing the first
appraiser, proceed to appraise all or a portion of the Leased
Property, as applicable, to determine the Fair Market Value of the
Leased Property as of the relevant date (giving effect to the
impact, if any, of inflation from the date of their decision to the
relevant date); provided, however, that if only one appraiser shall
have been so appointed, or if two appraisers shall have been so
appointed but only one such appraiser shall have made such
determination within thirty-five (35) days after the making of
Lessee's or Lessor's request, then the determination of such
appraiser shall be final and binding upon the parties.  If two
appraisers shall have been appointed and shall have made their
determinations within the respective requisite periods set forth
above and if the difference between the amounts so determined shall
not exceed ten percent (10%) of the lesser of such amounts, then
the Fair Market Value of all or a portion of the Leased Property,
as applicable, shall be an amount equal to fifty percent (50%) of
the sum of the amounts so determined.  If the difference between
the amounts so determined shall exceed ten percent (10%) of the
lesser of such amounts, then such two appraisers shall have ten

(10) days to appoint a third appraiser, but if such appraisers fail
to do so, then either party may request the American Arbitration
Association or any successor organization thereto to appoint an
appraiser within ten (10) days of such request, and both parties
shall be bound by any appointment so made within such ten (10) day
period.  If no such appraiser shall have been appointed within such
ten (10) days or within sixty (60) days of the original request for
a determination of Fair Market Value of all or a portion of the
Leased Property, as applicable, whichever is earlier, either Lessor
or Lessee may apply to any court having jurisdiction to have such
appointment made by such court.  Any appraiser appointed by the
original appraisers, by the American Arbitration Association or by
such court shall be instructed to determine the Fair Market Value
of all or a portion of the Leased Property, as applicable, within
thirty (30) days after appointment of such appraiser.  The
determination of the appraiser which differs most in terms of
dollar amount from the determinations of the other two appraisers
shall be excluded, and fifty percent (50%) of the sum of the
remaining two determinations shall be final and binding upon Lessor
and Lessee as the Fair Market Value of all or a portion of the
Leased Property, as applicable.

18.2.3  Specific Enforcement and Costs.  This provision for
determination by appraisal shall be specifically enforceable to the
extent such remedy is available under applicable law, and any
determination hereunder shall be final and binding upon the parties
except as otherwise provided by applicable law.  Lessor and Lessee
shall each pay the fees and expenses of the appraiser appointed by
it and each shall pay one-half of the fees and expenses of the
third appraiser and one-half of all other cost and expenses
incurred in connection with each appraisal.

18.3  Lessee's Right of First Refusal.  During the Term of this
Lease, so long as there exists no Event of Default under this Lease
at the time of exercise and on the date of closing, and there is no
event or state of facts which, with the passage of time and/or the
giving of notice, would constitute an Event of Default if not cured
by Lessee, and Lessee has not effected such cure, Lessee shall have
a "Right of First Refusal" as hereinafter described.  If Lessor
receives a bona fide written offer to purchase the Facility (the
"Subject Property") from a Person unaffiliated with Lessee (the
"Offer"), acceptable to Lessor in Lessor's sole and absolute
discretion and Lessor elects, in Lessor's sole and absolute
discretion, to sell, ground lease or otherwise transfer the Subject
Property other than as permitted by Article 20 below in accordance
with the Offer, Lessor shall notify Lessee and Lessee shall have
thirty (30) days following Lessee's receipt of Lessor's notice of

the Offer to elect to purchase the Subject Property on the same
terms and conditions as specified in the Offer.  Unless Lessor
receives notice from Lessee within such thirty (30) day period
setting forth Lessee's election to so purchase the Subject Property
and unless thereafter Lessee completes the acquisition of the
Subject Property exactly as provided for, and by the date
specified, in the Offer, Lessor shall be at liberty, and shall have
the absolute and unconditional right, to sell the Subject Property
to any Person within the next twelve (12) months substantially on
the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer or on any other
terms and conditions more favorable to Lessor and such sale, if so
completed, shall extinguish Lessee's Right of First Refusal with
respect to the Subject Property.  Lessee's Right of First Refusal
shall not apply to and shall survive:  (a) any sale or transfer of
the Subject Property or any portion thereof to Meditrust or any
Affiliate of Lessor or of Meditrust; or (b) any foreclosure of
any Fee Mortgage.  The Right of Refusal shall in all events
terminate upon any termination of this Lease.

18.4  Lessee's Option to Purchase.  

18.4.1  Pursuant to Section 6 of the Agreement Regarding Related
Transactions, if each of Lessee and every other lessee under the
therein-defined Acquisition Facility Leases exercise the therein-
defined Purchase Options to purchase the therein-defined Purchase
Option Property, Lessee shall purchase the below-defined Purchase
Option Property in accordance with the provisions of this Section
18.4 (the "Purchase Option").  For the purposes of this Section
18.4, the "Purchase Option Property" shall include any four (4)
facilities designated by Lessor (in its sole and absolute
discretion) which are leased by Lessee or any other member of the
Leasing Group or any of their respective Affiliates from Lessor or
any of the other Meditrust Entities or any of their respective
Affiliates; provided, however, the number of facilities designated
by Lessor to comprise a portion of the Purchase Option Property
shall be reduced by one (1) if the Facility is purchased by Lessee
in accordance with Section 18.3.  

18.4.2  Exercise of Option.  This Purchase Option shall permit
Lessee to purchase the Purchase Option Property (a) on the
thirteenth (13th) anniversary of the Fixed Term Commencement Date,
or (b) on the last day of any Extended Term effectively exercised
by Lessee (each of such dates are referred to herein as a "Purchase
Option Date") and shall be exercised by notice given by Lessee to
Lessor (the "Lessee's Purchase Option Notice") at least one hundred
eighty (180) days (but not more than two hundred seventy (270)
days) prior to the relevant Purchase Option Date, which notice
shall be accompanied by a good faith deposit (the "Good Faith
Deposit") in the amount of ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND AND NO/100 DOLLARS
($100,000.00), which Good Faith Deposit shall be credited toward
the Purchase Option Purchase Price if the closing pursuant to this
Purchase Option actually occurs and retained by Lessor if Lessee
fails to purchase the Purchase Option Property for any reason
(other than Lessor's default) after giving Lessee's Purchase Option
Notice.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this
Lease, Lessee's right to purchase the Purchase Option Property is
subject to the further conditions that (i) concurrently with the
exercise of the option set forth under this Section 18.4, Lessee
shall have exercised its rights to purchase the premises demised
under or otherwise subject to the Purchase Option, as applicable,
under each of the Related Leases in accordance with the provisions
of Section 18.4 of each of the Related Leases, (ii) the conveyance
of the Purchase Option Property pursuant to the provisions of this
Section 18.4 shall occur simultaneously with the conveyance of the
premises demised under or otherwise subject to the Purchase Option,
as applicable, under each of the Related Leases pursuant to Section
18.4 of each of the Related Leases and (iii) all conditions
contained in the Agreement Regarding Related Transactions
pertaining to the Purchase Option are satisfied.  Notwithstanding
the foregoing, Lessor shall return the Good Faith Deposit to Lessee
if Lessor willingly fails or is unable to convey the Purchase
Option Property to Lessee in accordance with this Section 18.4,
unless, pursuant to Section 18.4.9, Lessee elects to accept title
to the Purchase Option Property as Lessor can deliver, or Lessee
notifies Lessor in writing of Lessee's decision not to purchase the
Purchase Option Property on or before the third (3rd) business day
after Lessee receives from Lessor written notice of the Purchase
Option Purchase Price of the Purchase Option Property.

18.4.3  Conveyance.  If the Purchase Option is exercised by Lessee
in accordance with the terms hereof, the Purchase Option Property
shall be conveyed by a good and sufficient special warranty deed
(the "Deed") running to Lessee or to such grantee as Lessee may
designate by notice to Lessor at least seven (7) days before the
Time of Closing.

18.4.4 Calculation of Purchase Option Purchase Price.  The price
(the "Purchase Option Purchase Price") for the Purchase Option
Property pursuant to this Purchase Option shall be equal to the
greater of (a) the Meditrust Investment made in connection with the
Purchase Option Property or (b) an amount equal to the then Fair
Market Value of the Purchase Option Property minus the Fair Market
Added Value of the Purchase Option Property.

18.4.5 Payment of Purchase Option Purchase Price.  The Purchase
Option Purchase Price shall be paid by Lessee at the Time of
Closing by certified, cashier's, treasurer's or bank check(s) or
wire transfer pursuant to instructions received from Lessor.

18.4.6  Place and Time of Closing.  If this Purchase Option is
exercised, the closing shall occur and the Deed shall be delivered
(the "Closing") at the office of Lessor at 12:00 o'clock noon
(E.S.T.) on the relevant Purchase Option Date (such time, as the
same may be extended by mutual written agreement of Lessor and
Lessee, being hereinafter referred to as the "Time of Closing"). 
It is agreed that time is of the essence of this Purchase Option.

18.4.7  Condition of Purchase Option Property.  The Purchase Option
Property is to be purchased "AS IS" and "WHERE IS" as of the Time
of Closing.

18.4.8  Quality of Title.  If Lessor shall be unable to give title
or to make conveyance, as stipulated in this Section 18.4, then
Lessor shall use reasonable efforts to remove all defects in title
and the Time of Closing shall be extended for period of thirty (30)
days.  Lessor shall not be required to expend more than TEN
THOUSAND and NO/100 DOLLARS ($10,000.00) (inclusive of attorney's
fees) in order to have used "reasonable efforts."

18.4.9  Lessor's Inability to Perform.  If at the expiration of the
extended time Lessor shall have failed so to remove any such
defects in title, then all other obligations of all parties hereto
under Section 18.4 shall cease and Section 18.4 shall be void and
without recourse to the parties hereto.  Notwithstanding the
foregoing, Lessee shall have the election, at either the original
or extended Time of Closing, to accept such title as Lessor can
deliver to the Purchase Option Property in its then condition and
to pay therefor the Purchase Option Purchase Price without
reduction, in which case Lessor shall convey such title; provided,
that, in the event of such conveyance, if any portion of the
Purchase Option Property shall have been taken by exercise of the
power of Condemnation prior to the Time of Closing, Lessor shall
pay over or assign to Lessee at the Time of Closing, all Awards

recovered on account of such Taking, less any amounts reasonably
expended by Lessor in obtaining such Award, or, to the extent such
Awards are not then recovered, Lessor shall assign to Lessee all
its rights with respect to any claim therefor.

18.4.10  Merger by Deed.  The acceptance of the Deed by Lessee or
the grantee designated by Lessee, as the case may be, shall be
deemed to be a full performance and discharge of every agreement
and obligation to be performed by Lessor contained or expressed in
this Lease.

18.4.11  Use of Purchase Option Purchase Price to Clear Title.  To
enable Lessor to make conveyance as provided in this Section,
Lessor may, at the Time of Closing, use the Purchase Option
Purchase Price or any portion thereof to clear the title of any or
all encumbrances or interests, provided that all instruments so
procured are recorded contemporaneously with the Closing or
reasonable arrangements are made for a recording subsequent to the
Time of Closing in accordance with customary conveyancing
practices.

18.4.12 Lessee's Default.  If Lessee delivers Lessee's Purchase
Option Notice and fails to consummate the purchase of the Purchase
Option Property in accordance with the terms hereof for any reason
other than Lessor's willful and unexcused refusal to deliver the
Deed, Lessee shall thereafter have no further right to purchase the
Purchase Option Property pursuant to this Section, although this
Lease shall otherwise continue in full force and effect.  If Lessee
delivers Lessee's Purchase Option Notice and fails to consummate
the purchase of the Purchase Option Property in accordance with the
terms hereof for any reason other (a) than Lessee notifying Lessor
in writing of Lessee's decision not to purchase the Purchase Option
Property on or before the third (3rd) business day after Lessee
receives from Lessor written notice of the Purchase Option Purchase
Price of the Purchase Option Property or (b) Lessor's willful and
unexcused refusal to deliver the Deed, Lessor shall have the right
to sue for the specific performance of Lessee's obligations to
purchase the Purchase Option Property provided such suit for
specific performance is commenced within one (1) year after the
relevant Purchase Option Date on which such sale was supposed to
occur.

18.4.13  [Intentionally Omitted].  


ARTICLE 19

SUBLETTING AND ASSIGNMENT

19.1  Subletting and Assignment.  Lessee may not, without the prior
written consent of Lessor, which consent may be withheld in
Lessor's sole and absolute discretion, assign or pledge all or any
portion of its interest in this Lease or any of the other Lease
Documents (whether by operation of law or otherwise) or sublet all
or any part of the Leased Property.  For purposes of this Section 19.1, 
the term "assign" shall be deemed to include, but not
be limited to, any one or more sales, pledges, hypothecations or
other transfers (including, without limitation, any transfer by
operation of law) of any of the capital stock of Lessee or sales,
pledges, hypothecations or other transfers (including, without
limitation, any transfer by operation of law) of the capital or the
assets of Lessee.  Any such assignment, pledge, sale, hypothecation
or other transfer made without Lessor's consent shall be void and
of no force and effect.

19.2  [INTENTIONALLY OMITTED]

19.3  Attornment.  Lessee shall insert in each Sublease approved by
Lessor, provisions to the effect that (a) such Sublease is subject
and subordinate to all of the terms and provisions of this Lease
and to the rights of Lessor hereunder, (b) in the event this Lease
shall terminate before the expiration of such Sublease, the
Sublessee thereunder will, at Lessor's option, attorn to Lessor
and waive any right the Sublessee may have to terminate the
Sublease or to surrender possession thereunder, as a result of the
termination of this Lease and (c) in the event the Sublessee
receives a written notice from Lessor stating that Lessee is in
default under this Lease, the Sublessee shall thereafter be
obligated to pay all rentals accruing under said Sublease directly
to Lessor or as Lessor may direct.  All rentals received from the
Sublessee by Lessor shall be credited against the amounts owing by
Lessee under this Lease.

19.4  [INTENTIONALLY OMITTED]


ARTICLE 20

TITLE TRANSFERS AND LIENS GRANTED BY LESSOR

20.1  No Merger of Title.  There shall be no merger of this Lease
or of the leasehold estate created hereby with the fee estate in
the Leased Property by reason of the fact that the same Person
may acquire, own or hold, directly or indirectly (a) this Lease or
the leasehold estate created hereby or any interest in this Lease
or such leasehold estate and (b) the fee estate in the Leased
Property. 

20.2  Transfers By Lessor.  If the original Lessor named herein or
any successor in interest shall convey the Leased Property in
accordance with the terms hereof, other than as security for a
debt, and the grantee or transferee of the Leased Property shall
expressly assume all obligations of Lessor hereunder arising or
accruing from and after the date of such conveyance or transfer,
the original Lessor named herein or the applicable successor in
interest so conveying the Leased Property shall thereupon be
released from all future liabilities and obligations of Lessor
under this Lease arising or accruing from and after the date of
such conveyance or other transfer as to the Leased Property and all
such future liabilities and obligations shall thereupon be binding
upon the new owner.  
20.3  Lessor May Grant Liens.  Without the consent of Lessee, but
subject to the terms and conditions set forth below in this Section
20.3, Lessor may, from time to time, directly or indirectly, create
or otherwise cause to exist any lien, encumbrance or title
retention agreement upon the Leased Property or any interest
therein ("Encumbrance"), whether to secure any borrowing or other
means of financing or refinancing, provided that Lessee shall have
no obligation to make payments under such Encumbrances.  Lessee
shall subordinate this Lease to the lien of any such Encumbrance,
on the condition that the beneficiary or holder of such Encumbrance
executes a non-disturbance agreement in conformity with the
provisions of Section 20.4.  To the extent that any such
Encumbrance consists of a mortgage or deed of trust on Lessor's
interest in the Leased Property the same shall be referred to
herein as a "Fee Mortgage" and the holder thereof shall be referred
to herein as a "Fee Mortgagee".

20.4  Subordination and Non-Disturbance.  Concurrently with the
execution and delivery of any Fee Mortgage entered into after the
date hereof, provided that the Lessee executes and delivers an
agreement of the type described in the following paragraph, Lessor
shall obtain and deliver to Lessee an agreement by the holder of

such Fee Mortgage, pursuant to which, (a) the applicable Fee
Mortgagee consents to this Lease and (b) agrees that,
notwithstanding the terms of the applicable Fee Mortgage held by
such Fee Mortgagee, or any default, expiration, termination,
foreclosure, sale, entry or other act or omission under or pursuant
to such Fee Mortgage or a transfer in lieu of foreclosure, (i)
Lessee shall not be disturbed in peaceful enjoyment of the Leased
Property nor shall this Lease be terminated or cancelled at any
time, except in the event that Lessor shall have the right to
terminate this Lease under the terms and provisions expressly set
forth herein, (ii) Lessee's option to purchase the Leased Property
shall remain in force and effect pursuant to the terms hereof and
(iii) in the event that Lessee elects its option to purchase the
Leased Property and performs all of its obligations hereunder in
connection with any such election, the holder of the Fee Mortgage
shall release its Fee Mortgage upon payment by Lessee of the
purchase price required hereunder, provided, that (1) such purchase
price is paid to the holder of the Fee Mortgage, in the event that
the Indebtedness secured by the applicable Fee Mortgage is equal to
or greater than the purchase price or (2) in the event that the
purchase price is greater than the Indebtedness secured by the Fee
Mortgage, a portion of the purchase price equal to the Indebtedness
secured by the Fee Mortgage is paid to the Fee Mortgagee and the
remainder of the purchase price is paid to Lessor.

At the request from time to time by any Fee Mortgagee, Lessee shall
(a) subordinate this Lease and all of Lessee's rights and estate
hereunder to the Fee Mortgage held by such Fee Mortgagee and (b)
agree that Lessee will attorn to and recognize such Fee Mortgagee
or the purchaser at any foreclosure sale or any sale under a power
of sale contained in any such Fee Mortgage as Lessor under this
Lease for the balance of the Term then remaining.  To effect the
intent and purpose of the immediately preceding sentence, Lessee
agrees to execute and deliver such instruments in recordable from
as are reasonably requested by Lessor or the applicable Fee
Mortgagee; provided, however, that such Fee Mortgagee
simultaneously executes, delivers and records a written agreement
of the type described in the preceding paragraph.


ARTICLE 21

LESSOR OBLIGATIONS

21.1  Quiet Enjoyment.  As long as Lessee shall pay all Rent and
all other sums due under any of the Lease Documents as the same
become due and shall fully comply with all of the terms of this
Lease and fully perform its obligations thereunder, Lessee shall
peaceably and quietly have, hold and enjoy the Leased Property
throughout the Term, free of any claim or other action by Lessor or
anyone claiming by, through or under Lessor, but subject to all the
Permitted Encumbrances and such Liens as may hereafter be consented
to by Lessee.  No failure by Lessor to comply with the foregoing
covenant shall give Lessee any right to cancel or terminate this
Lease, or to fail to perform any other sum payable under this
Lease, or to fail to perform any other obligation of Lessee
hereunder.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lessee shall have the 
right by separate and independent action to pursue any claim it may
have against Lessor as a result of a breach by Lessor of the
covenant of quiet enjoyment contained in this Article 21.

21.2  Memorandum of Lease.  Lessor and Lessee shall, promptly upon
the request of either, enter into a short form memorandum of this
Lease, in form suitable for recording under the laws of the State,
in which reference to this Lease and all options contained herein
shall be made.  Lessee shall pay all recording costs and taxes
associated therewith. 

21.3  Default by Lessor.  Lessor shall be in default of its
obligations under this Lease only if Lessor shall fail to observe
or perform any term, covenant or condition of this Lease on its
part to be performed and such failure shall continue for a period
of thirty (30) days after notice thereof from Lessee (or such
shorter time as may be necessary in order to protect the health or
welfare of any residents of the Facility), unless such failure
cannot with due diligence be cured within a period of thirty (30)
days, in which case such failure shall not be deemed to continue if
Lessor, within said thirty (30) day period, proceeds promptly and
with due diligence to cure the failure and diligently completes the
curing thereof.  The time within which Lessor shall be obligated to
cure any such failure shall also be subject to extension of time
due to the occurrence of any Unavoidable Delay.

21.4  Computer Disc.  In order to facilitate the electronic filing
of this Lease with the United States Securities and Exchange
Commission and other governmental agencies, Lessor shall provide or
cause to be provided to Guarantor a computer disc containing this
Lease, together with all exhibits, schedules and ancillary
documents related thereto, formatted in WordPerfect 5.1, Times New
Roman Font 12, upon Lessee's one-time request for same.

The Declaration of Trust establishing the sole shareholder of
Lessor, Meditrust, a Massachusetts business trust ("Meditrust"),
dated August 6, 1985 (the "Declaration"), as amended, a copy of
which is duly filed in the office of the Secretary of State of
the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, provides that the name
"Meditrust" refers to the trustees under the Declaration
collectively as trustees, but not individually or personally; and
that no trustee, officer, shareholder, employee or agent of
Meditrust or any of its Subsidiaries shall be held to any
personal liability, jointly, or severally, for any obligation of,
or claim against Meditrust or any of its Subsidiaries.  All
Persons dealing with Meditrust or Lessor, in any way, shall look
only to the assets of Meditrust or Lessor, as applicable, for the
payment of any sum or the performance of any obligation. 
Furthermore, in no event shall Meditrust or Lessor ever be liable
to Lessee or any other Person for any indirect or consequential
damages incurred by Lessee or such other Person resulting from
any cause whatsoever.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lessee
hereby acknowledges and agrees that Meditrust is not a party to
this Lease and that Lessee shall look only to the assets of
Lessor for the payment of any sum or performance of any
obligation due by or from Lessor pursuant to the terms and
provisions of the Lease Documents.

ARTICLE 24

MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS

24.1  Broker's Fee Indemnification.  Lessee shall and hereby agrees
to indemnify, defend (with counsel acceptable to Lessor) and hold
Lessor harmless from and against any and all claims for premiums or
other charges, finder's fees, taxes, brokerage fees or commissions
and other similar compensation due in connection with any of the
transactions contemplated by the Lease Documents.  Notwithstanding
the foregoing, Lessor shall have the option of conducting its own
defense against any such claims with counsel of Lessor's choice,
but at the expense of Lessee, as aforesaid.  This indemnification
shall include all attorneys' fees and expenses and court costs
reasonably incurred by Lessor in connection with the defense
against any such claims and the enforcement of this indemnification
agreement and shall survive the termination of this Lease.

24.2  No Joint Venture or Partnership.  Neither anything contained
in any of the Lease Documents, nor the acts of the parties hereto,
shall create, or be construed to create, a partnership or joint
venture between Lessor and Lessee.  Lessee is not the agent or
representative of Lessor and nothing contained herein or in any of
the other Lease Documents shall make, or be construed to make,
Lessor liable to any Person for goods delivered to Lessee, services
performed with respect to the Leased Property at the direction of
Lessee or for debts or claims accruing against Lessee.

24.3  Amendments, Waivers and Modifications.  None of the terms,
covenants, conditions, warranties or representations contained in
this Lease or in any of the other Lease Documents may be renewed,
replaced, amended, modified, extended, substituted, revised,
waived, consolidated or terminated except by an agreement in
writing signed by the Person against whom enforcement is sought or
except as otherwise expressly provided for herein or in any other
Lease Document.  The provisions of this Lease and the other Lease
Documents shall extend and be applicable to all renewals,
replacements, amendments, extensions, substitutions, revisions,
consolidations and modifications of any of the Lease Documents, the
Management Agreements, the Related Party Agreements, the Permits
and/or the Contracts.  References herein and in the other Lease
Documents to any of the Lease Documents, the Management Agreements,
the Related Party Agreements, the Permits and/or the Contracts
shall be deemed to include any renewals, replacements, amendments,
extensions, substitutions, revisions, consolidations or
modifications thereof.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, any reference contained in any of
the Lease Documents, whether express or implied, to any renewal,
replacement, amendment, extension, substitution, revisions,
consolidation or modification of any of the Lease Documents or any
Management Agreement, Related Party Agreement, Permit and/or the
Contract is not intended to constitute an agreement or consent by
Lessor to any such renewal, replacement, amendment, substitution,
revision, consolidation or modification; but, rather as a reference
only to those instances where Lessor may give, agree or consent to
any such renewal, replacement, amendment, extension, substitution,
revision, consolidation or modification as the same may be required
pursuant to the terms, covenants and conditions of any of the Lease
Documents.

24.4  Further Assurances.  At any time and from time to time, upon
the written request by Lessor, Lessee (and any of its Affiliates)
and the Guarantor (and any of its Affiliates) shall promptly make,
execute and deliver, or cause to be made, executed and delivered,
to Lessor and, where appropriate, cause to be recorded or filed
(and, from time to time thereafter, to be re-recorded or refiled)
at such time and in such offices and places as shall be deemed
desirable by Lessor (in its reasonable discretion), any such
agreements, amendments, assignments, instruments of further
assurance, certificates and other documents as Lessor may, in its
reasonable discretion, deem desirable to (a) enable Lessor to
assign the Lease or any portion of its interest; (b) enable Lessor 
to enter into participation agreements with respect to all or any
portion of the Lease; or (c)effectuate, complete, perfect or
continue and preserve the rights, remedies and obligations under
the Lease; provided, however that, except as to the costs and
expenses of Lessor in connection with the items referred to in the
foregoing clause (c), no such additional document or other
instrument requested by Lessor hereunder shall (i) increase the
obligations of Lessee (or any of its Affiliates) or the Guarantor
(or any of its Affiliates), or (ii) require Lessee or the Guarantor
to incur any cost or expense (other than the fees and costs of any
attorney(s) either Lessee or the Guarantor may choose to retain in
connection with such transaction).  

Any failure by Lessee (or any of its Affiliates) or the Guarantor
(or any of its Affiliates) to comply with any request pursuant to
this Section 24.4 within twenty (20) days after such written
request is made by Lessor shall be an Event of Default hereunder
and upon such Event of Default, Lessor may make, execute, record,
file, re-record and refile any and all such amendments,
assignments, instruments, certificates and documents for and in the
name of Lessee (or any of its Affiliates) or the Guarantor (or any
of its Affiliates), and Lessee (or any of its Affiliates) or the
Guarantor (or any of its Affiliates) each hereby appoints Lessor as
its attorney-in-fact, with full power of substitution, to take such
actions (on behalf of and in the name of Lessee (or any of its
Affiliates) or the Guarantor (or any of its Affiliates) as the case
may be) as Lessor, in its sole and absolute discretion, may deem
necessary or desirable to effectuate the intent of this Section
24.4.

24.5  Invalidity.  If any provision of this Lease or any of the
other Lease Documents or the application thereof to any Person or
circumstance, for any reason and to any extent, shall be held to be
invalid or unenforceable, neither the remainder of this Lease or
other Lease Documents nor the application of such provision to any
other Person or circumstance shall be affected thereby, but rather
the same shall be enforced to the greatest extent permitted by
applicable law.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is the intention of the parties
hereto that if any provision of the Lease or the other Lease
Documents is capable of two (2) constructions, one of which would
render the provision void and the other of which would render the
provision valid, then such provision shall be construed in
accordance with the construction which renders such provision
valid.

24.6 Captions and Headings.  The captions and headings set forth in
this Lease and each of the other Lease Documents are included for
convenience and reference only, and the words contained therein
shall in no way be held or deemed to define, limit, describe,
explain, modify, amplify or add to the interpretation, construction
or meaning of, or the scope or intent of, this Lease, any of the
other Lease Documents or any parts hereof or thereof.

24.7  Time is of the Essence.  Time is of essence of each and every
term, condition, covenant and warranty set forth herein and in the
other Lease Documents.

24.8  Counterparts.  This Lease and the other Lease Documents may
be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which taken
together shall constitute an original and all of which shall
constitute one and the same instrument.

24.9  Entire Agreement.  This Lease and the other Lease Documents
set forth the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the
subject matter and shall supersede in all respect the Letter of
Intent, dated November 21, 1995 (and all prior iterations thereof),
from Meditrust to Guarantor.

24.10  WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL.  TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY
APPLICABLE LAW, LESSOR AND LESSEE HEREBY MUTUALLY, KNOWINGLY,
VOLUNTARILY AND INTENTIONALLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT WHICH ANY PARTY
HERETO MAY NOW OR HEREAFTER HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF
ANY SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE
LEASE OR ANY OF THE LEASE DOCUMENTS.  Lessee hereby certifies that
neither Lessor nor any of Lessor's representatives, agents or 
counsel has represented expressly or otherwise that Lessor would
not, in the event of any such suit, action or proceeding seek to
enforce this waiver to the right of trial by jury and acknowledges
that Lessor has been induced by this waiver (among other things) to
enter into the transactions evidenced by this Lease and the other
Lease Documents and further acknowledges that Lessee (a) has read
the provisions of this Lease, and in particular, the paragraph
containing this waiver, (b) has consulted legal counsel, (c) understands
the rights that it is granting in this Lease and
the rights that it is waiving in this paragraph in particular and
(d) makes the waivers set forth herein knowingly, voluntarily and
intentionally.

24.11  Successors and Assigns.  This Lease and the other Lease
Documents shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of (a)
upon Lessee and Lessee's legal representatives and permitted
successors and assigns and (b) Lessor and any other Person who may
now or hereafter hold the interest of Lessor under this Lease and
their respective successors and assigns.  Notwithstanding the
foregoing, except as may be permitted pursuant to Article 19,
Lessee shall not assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder
or under any of the other Lease Documents without the prior written
consent of Lessor, in each instance, which consent may be withheld
in Lessor's sole and absolute discretion.

24.12  No Third Party Beneficiaries.  This Lease and the other
Lease Documents are solely for the benefit of Lessor, its
successors, assigns and participants (if any), the Meditrust
Entities, Lessee, the Guarantor, the other members of the Leasing
Group and their respective permitted successors and assigns, and,
except as otherwise expressly set forth in any of the Lease
Documents, nothing contained therein shall confer upon any Person
other than such parties any right to insist upon or to enforce the
performance or observance of any of the obligations contained
therein.  All conditions to the obligations of Lessor to advance or
make available proceeds of insurance or Awards, or to release any
deposits held for Impositions or insurance premiums are imposed
solely and exclusively for the benefit of Lessor, its successors
and assigns.  No other Person shall have standing to require
satisfaction of such conditions in accordance with their terms, and
no other Person shall, under any circumstances, be a beneficiary of
such conditions, any or all of which may be freely waived in whole
or in part by Lessor at any time, if, in Lessor's sole and absolute
discretion, Lessor deems it advisable or desirable to do so.

24.13  Governing Law.  This Lease shall be construed and the rights
and obligations of Lessor and Lessee shall be determined in
accordance with the laws of the State.
