Yes there are always exceptions, and yes I'm sure everyone knows a guy or had an aunt who lived to be 106 without ever seeing a doctor. That's not typical though, and everyone knows it. All things being equal, 300 beds might be great for the "average 100,000 people". But it might not be great for "100,000 mostly seniors."

I don't know if it is great or not, but it doesn't seem the same statistics can be equally applied.
