In this context, I think "mempunyai" would be a more appropriate word than "memiliki". "They have twenty doctors" not "They own twenty doctors". Hence, "Mereka mempunyai dua puluh dokter" is a better translation of "They have twenty doctors". But, an even better English sentece would be: "They employ twenty doctors", "they" could be a hospital, a clinic, etc.

Yes, but the contex may make a difference, no?
