How The Copa Star Meets The Health Needs of Rio de Janeiro

The Hospital Copa Star opened its doors in October 2016. The hospital, which took three years to build, is the first hospital of its kind in Brazil. The Hospital Copa Star is a luxury hospital that combines all the personnel and functions of a cutting edge hospital with the amenities of a five-star hotel. It is located near the famed Copacabana Beach in the city of Rio de Janiero.

The Hospital Copa Star is part of the Rede D’Or São Luiz Brazilian chain of hospitals. The founder and President of Rede D’Or São Luiz, Dr. Jorge Moll, said that the Hospital Copa Star is a fantastic alternative for residents of the area because before the hospital was built many surgeries had to be performed in São Paulo or Rio instead. He said that the Hospital Copa Star has an environment that helps people recover from complex surgeries due to its hotel accommodations and experienced, professional staff of doctors and nurses.

While the hospital is meant to be very comfortable for patients that doesn’t mean that it also doesn’t focus on a highly trained team of doctors and nurses who are specialized in a variety of surgeries and medical disciplines. The team at Hospital Copa Star are held to the highest international standards of education, training, and care. Before the Hospital Copa Star opened the team slated to work there trained for two months which involved various emergency simulations. There is a total of 550 medical staff at the Hospital Copa Star which includes 113 doctors.

Incorporating the latest in technology, the surgery rooms at the Hospital Copa Star are equipped with the latest medical devices and equipment. The surgery rooms also incorporate robotics which are used by surgeons to assist in surgeries, especially during highly complex ones. The Hospital Copa Star was also designed with the latest in modern work flows which includes having separate hallways for the transportation of gurneys so that patients can be moved as efficiently as possible.

Each patient room also has incorporated autonomous technology. From their hospital bed, patients are able to control the lighting, entertainment options, the drapes, and the shape of their beds. All of this is controlled through the use of an iPad which patients are given when admitted to the Hospital Copa Star. The iPad also allows patients to summon a nurse or discuss their case with a doctor through a video conference feature.

The Hospital Copa Star concept has proven to be very popular in Rio de Janiero with those patients who have a premium flag on their health insurance plans. Dr Jorge Moll has said that he and his executive team are already planning on expanding similar hospitals into both Brasilia and São Paulo over the next few years. Read more at about Copa Star.
