It became the nation's largest drug chain after taking over Longs Drug Stores last year in a contentious $2.7 billion deal. But the hook-up helped CVS Caremark move up five spots on the 500.

A profitable year didn't come without a struggle: The company scrambled to keep customers at its pharmacy benefit management unit, and a tough economy cut into doctor visits, which meant fewer prescriptions. It didn't help that the CVS Caremark got bad press for offering suppliers paid access to its executives at its charity golf tournament last year. - J.R.
