The five-to-four vote preserved the law's key provision, an individual mandate requiring everyone to buy health insurance.
The presidents of both the Lutheran Health Network and Parkview Hospital voiced their support for the controversial individual mandate. Both men said they are anticipating greater demand for their services because of this law.
Joe Dorko, CEO of Lutheran Health says he expects to hire more physicians, nurses and physicians' assistants. He says as more people buy insurance, the demand for primary care will increase because fewer people will be forced to go to the emergency room for routine check-ups.
The ruling could be a major boost to the Obama re-election campaign, as well. The President spent much of Thursday touting the Supreme Court's ruling as a victory for the nation.
Meanwhile, Mitt Romney said that if elected, he would repeal the law his first day in office.
