A Hospital On The Beach?

You read that right. There is a hospital in Rio de Janiero, and it is right on Copa Cabana beach. It is called the Copa Star, and it is a hospital that deserves some closer inspection.

When a person enters the lobby, they are greeted by, not the usual seats and a desk with a receptionist or two. They are greeted by a grand piano. The seating is not the hard, uncomfortable airport-terminal type of chairs. The seating is on comfortable plush sofas and chairs. Added to that, there is artwork on display by the world renowned artist, Takuta Toyota. Those are things you do not normally find in a hospital lobby. You will find Mr. Toyota’s artwork throughout the hospital as well.

The hospital’s cafeteria is not a cafeteria. It is a restaurant, but not just some place to order hospital food. It is a five-star restaurant designed by a world renowned chef. The food is restaurant cuisine, not cafeteria food. Read more at Scoopnest about Copa Star.

Every patient in the hospital is giving a suite of rooms. In the suite, the patient is provided with an Ipad to use for their convenience. With the Ipad, the patient can control the drapes, the lighting, the room’s temperature, and other facets of the environment. They can contact the hospital staff or the nurse with the Ipad as well. The patient can even have video conferences with the doctor on the Ipad. The doctor can discuss and display the results of the patient’s tests on the Ipad.

There are a number of operating rooms in the hospital, each of them accommodating the latest, state of the art equipment. There is quite of lot of robotic equipment to help the doctors during tests and operations. The testing equipment is adjacent to the operating rooms. This is unique in that is most hospitals the testing areas are far from the operating rooms.

Patients in intensive care have a unique experience waiting for them. Instead of the dull, overbearing emptiness found in isolation, they are given a wide screen television. They can control scenery on the television, be it live video from the street below or the comings and goings in the hallways of the hospital. They can even get a live video of the scenes on the beach! This alleviates the isolation and the boredom of ICU patients. Visit the site Rede D’Or for more info.

The Hospital Copa Star is the brain child of the president of D’Or, Mr. Jorge Moll. He aspires to build more hospitals like the Copa Star, one in Brasilia, and one in Sao Paulo.

The Copa Star’s building structure is different than other hospitals as well. It uses 50% of the energy of like hospitals!

D’Or operates a number of hospitals throughout Brazil.
