Copa Star Is the Newest Luxury Hospital on the Beach

Copa Star, on Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana beach, is the newest addition to the resort area. The important thing about it is that it is not a resort hotel, though it looks like one. It is a hospital. It is a hospital like no other.

When you walk into the lobby, the first thing you will notice is the grand piano. Also, there is artwork by the famed Japanese Artist, Yakuta Toyota. His artwork can be seen throughout the hospital.

In the lobby you will find cozy overstuffed sofas and chairs. This is not a regular hospital lobby for sure. Visit their profile page on Facebook.Com

The patients’ rooms are called suites. The patient controls the drapes, the lighting, and the temperature with an Ipad on the patient’s bed. With the Ipad, he can contact the nurse’s station, the staff, and even his doctor. The doctor can hold a video conference with the patient and even go over and display the results of the last tests that were done.

The intensive care unit is unique, also. Every patient in the ICU has a large video screen in the room. On the screen, the patient can control the view. They can watch a view of the hospital corridors, the street below, or even a live scene on the beach. This is done to combat the sudden effects of isolation and loneliness with being in ICU.

The hospital does not have a cafeteria. They have a restaurant. It is a five-star restaurant designed by a world renowned chef. The menu is not cafeteria food, either.

When this brain child of Jorge Moll, the president of D’Or, the company that built and operated Copa Star, was built, a new type of concrete design was used that saves up to 50% of the energy costs of comparable hospitals.

The hospital has a number of high-tech, state of the art operating rooms. With robot assistance, the doctors have access to testing equipment in the same room as the operation in order to test the patient right after an operation or even during it.

The hospital plans to specialize in cardiology and neurology.

D’Or operates a number of hospitals in Brazil, and plan to open several more along the same lines as the Copa Star. They plan one in Brasilia and one in Sao Paulo. Read more at Scoopnest.com about Copa Star.
