In 2008, Normandy's healthcare facilities provided a total of 5,952 hospital beds. Normandy is better equipped than the French national average. This superior regional offer, compared to the national offer, essentially stems from a higher number of general medical care beds (2.53 beds for 1,000 inhabitants compared to a national average of 2.1).
