CONCORD —Today's decision by the United States Supreme Court upholding in large part the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will be applauded by its supporters and criticized by its detractors.

We will continue to analyze the Court's decision, but today's action will provide more clarity around the law as hospitals move forward in collaboration – with other health care providers, insurers and patients – to transform the health care system.

The New Hampshire Hospital Association is committed to working together with our members and other stakeholders to build a health care system that provides more coordinated, high quality and affordable care to the patients and communities who depend on us.
