The last thing that you are expecting to see in a hospital is an elegant and expensive architecture. Today, the concept of hospitals has changed, and there are luxurious hospitals. One elegant hospital was inaugurated in Rio de Janeiro- the Copa Star.
It took three years for Copa Star to be completed and that is why it stands out with elegance and class. The hospital has combined class, quality service, and an excellent customer service. The architectural design resembles a five-star hotel with quality service.
If you are familiar with the Rede D’Or Sao Luiz, then you know that the elegance is nothing new. Copa Star has followed the standard concept that has been used on other hospital owned by the network. Copa Star stands on a 21,000 sq.ft. and has 155 deluxe patient suites, 59 Intensive Care Unit, and the nine operating rooms. They have also included hybrid rooms and also introduced the robotic medicine.
The hospital features state-of-the-art artwork from the famous Japanese Yutaka Toyota. It also features a restaurant that offers different cuisines. It took an investment of R$ 400 million to design the hospital. The primary focus for the hospital will be cardiology and neurology. The main goal of the hospital is to surpass the different hospitals in the same field.
They have included different technological features the iPads. All the patient rooms are fitted with iPads that they can use to control the various functions. They can control the curtains and the lighting of the room. In addition, the patients can use iPads to communicate with the doctors. The doctors, in turn, can also share the patient’s results with them. This has been made possible by the app that the hospital designed.
The other improvement has been in the ICU units. Most times the patients tend to get lonely and depressed when they are in these rooms. The hospital has therefore taken measures to makes sure that they are entertained. They have installed cameras at the tallest buildings. These cameras will then relay images on the big screens installed in the rooms.
Copa Star has qualified staff, and they undergo two-month training. They are trained to handle different situations that they face on a daily basis.
