Copa Star Hospital, which had been under construction since 2013, was finally opened in October 2016 in Rio de Janeiro. The hospital is located in Copacabana on Figueiredo Magalhaes Street. It is a project of Rede D’Or Sao Luiz, which is headed by Jorge Moll, a renowned cardiologist. Copa Star Hospital is a state-of-the-art facility that offers something totally different from what the people of Rio are used to. It is built like a five-star hotel, ensuring that patients are very comfortable when being attended to.
The hospital has made things better for the people of Rio who lacked proper health facilities, and had to travel to Sao Paolo to get the health services they needed. It is equipped to handle everything from the most basic illnesses such as flues to the most complicated surgeries. The luxurious accommodation enables patients to recuperate faster and makes the hospital experience more bearable for them.
Copa Star hospital has all the latest technology in the health industry to ensure that patients receive the high-quality care that they deserve. Patients admitted in the hospital are able to communicate with doctors and nurses through iPads which they are provided with on admission. This is unlike the conventional system where patients have to ring a bell or wait until the doctors go forward rounds to be able to tell them their concerns or ask any pressing questions.
Patients are also able to be more independent since they can use the iPads to open and close windows or adjust blinds, adjust the lighting to their preferred brightness, and even adjust their beds to whatever makes them comfortable. They do not have to keep calling the nurses to do these things for them. This gives them a unique experience and makes their hospital stay much more comfortable.
Copa Star Hospital provides specialized care for patients. It has employed professional staffs who are well trained on how to provide personalized care to patients to ensure that they get value for their money. In fact, before the hospital was opened, all the 550 staff employed at the hospital underwent intensive training for two months to ensure that they were ready for the job.
Hospital Copa Star has totally redefined the meaning of a hospital from a drab-looking facility that people dread visiting to a beautiful and comfortable place that is no longer depressing to visit. What this means for other hospitals is that they have to raise their standards to be at par with such state-of-the-art facilities. Rede D’Or Sao Luiz has been lauded for its commitment to improving the healthcare industry in Brazil. Jorge Moll said that they plan to do the same in other places in Brazil including Sao Paulo and Brasilia. Visit the site Rede D’Or for more info.
