It can be easily done with help of container - the Frame element.

You should put Frame with Position Type as Float and put to them both staticText (label) and textField.

For textField I've set Position Type as Float the Stretch With Overlfow as true.

The sample

The jrxml file:

To complete Alex K's solution : with Jaspersoft Studio, do not forget to set the property of the Static Text "stretch type" to "relative to tallest object".

In Jasper Reports 3.6 and later (including 5.2), there is a facility to use multiple details bands. You can put the first two blocks of Name and the text of "Sally Admison ..." in the first band. Below it would be your Patient ID and the "1234567890Blah..." and below that would be another details band with Date of Birth. This will give you the results that you want.

Do not refer to my post here as this is for the older 3.5 version of Jasper Reports. That version does not allow you to use multiple bands and I had to live with one single details band. This is not the case with 5.2. You can have fun with multiple details bands. Enjoy!

Just increase the width of your details pane, that sorted the alignment issues for me.
