The stats are for the overall population and the beds available in all the hospitals available to that population, not a single hospital. But even taking into account the age of the Villages population the Villages Hospital wouldn't be that far off from the national average.

But there are a lot more than 300 hospital beds in the Villages area. For example Leesburg has 329 beds and for a lot of Villages residents it is closer than The Villages Hospital is. So that's over 600 beds for the Villages/Leesburg are. The population of Leesburg is around 23,000 so it doesn't change the overall population numbers much. And there are other hospitals in the general area of the Villages like Promise. And the new ER and "bedless" hospital coming to Brownwood will relieve some of the load on Villages and Leesburg hospital. And if Central Florida Health does end up building a hospital in Brownwood on the land they bought for that purpose that will relieve those hospitals even more.

So compared to the country as a whole we have a better beds/population ratio than the country as a whole even taking into account the age of the Villages population.

If a second hospital is built maybe it ought to have a maternity ward to accommodate the seemingly growing "underage" population.

Good grief I hope they don't build a maternity ward. Don't forget if you're under 19, you can't live in The Villages. That means all those newborns have to live - somewhere else.
