With the Supreme Court ruling in favor of President Obama’s health care law, many are now left wondering what the next step is.  Washington County Hospital and Clinics’ CEO Dennis Hunger says a lot of research and homework will need to be completed to find out how this will impact hospitals and providers.

He says in the end the issues are still the same of providing healthcare to more people at a lower rate and give better outcomes.

Hunger adds the biggest challenge will be getting to the point of helping people make wise choices regarding their healthcare.

He notes that he is attending a meeting today and will be able to provide more information on how this will impact the hospital and other providers in the area.
