Following three years of building, the Hospital Copa Star was launched in October last year in the wonderful City of Rio in Brazil. The facility is built in the Southern region of Rio in Copacabana to provide the citizens with medical services. It incorporates sophisticated technology, luxury, comfort, and modern services from trained staff. The architectural design of the hospital is the same as that of a five-star hotel.
Hospital Copa Star covers 21,000 square meters and is seven storeys high, whereby it is built with technological refinement and innovation in mind. Its smart system permits patients to have extraordinary services that cannot be found in other medical institutions. Patients can have conversations with their doctors through a few commands using the available iPads, which they can also use to request for nurses’ attention. The hospital beds also feature the automation of modern technology as users can change the lighting settings in their rooms, close or open curtains, among other features. Besides, the same case applies to interns who can access their exams electronically. View the design at RAF Arquitetura.
The investment was commenced in 2013 and utilized more than R $ 400 million. Jorge Moll, the founder, cardiologist and the President of Rede D’Or São Luiz added that a facility is an option for Rio citizens who could not access similar services nearby. Jorge Moll added that they had combined all kinds of technologies, involving complex surgeries and qualified care in the hospital. Before the building of the facility, patients used to fly to Albert Einstein or Sao Paulo. Hospital Copa Star brings together professional staff and hotel accommodations, all to help in patients’ recovery. The facility has ensured a setting that combines comfort, technology, and human acceptance. Thus, it is an exclusive and personalized service. It also guarantees the availability of health professionals and equipment.
The team in the Copa Star Hospital was provided with professional training for two months with different simulations and tests. Its management has also put in place emergency services to ensure everything is planned to detail. The Copa Star Hospital team has more than 550 permanent employees, of which over 113 are doctors. Also, professionals have been coached on how to approach their patients with regards to equipment and medications to use.
Another thing about the Rio Copa Star facility concerns insurance cover. Health insurance ensures all patients seeking different kinds of treatments pay for their services easily without complications. The hospital has 105 apartments, 45 ICU facilities, and 150 beds. Its stellar unit comprises of a diagnostic park, nine operating rooms, and all the needed technological facilities. Other modern equipment includes; hybrid rooms, intelligent operating rooms, telemedicine & robotic medicine, and neurosurgery rooms (that come with integrated magnetic resonance apparatuses).
