This does it by brute force.

statNames={"N","Max","Min","Mean","Std.dev.","Median"};

statNumbers={40,103,2,56.8,22.5,59};

StyleForm[
  TableForm[
    Transpose[{statNames,
        If[IntegerQ[#],
              StringReplace[
                ToString[
                  NumberForm[#,{4,1},
                    NumberPadding->{" ","0"}]],
                ".0"->"  "],
              NumberForm[#,{4,1},
                NumberPadding->{" ","0"}]]&/@
          statNumbers}]],
  FontFamily->"Courier"]
