Is Copa Star The Best Hospital in Rio de Janeiro?

Rio de Janeiro is known for success in a lot of areas. However, for a long time, it had always been lagging behind in terms of luxurious healthcare services. But not anymore, not since Copa Star hospital was established in Rua Figueiredo Magalhães.

Copa Star is a five star hospital, occupying 7 floors and a basement. The hospital lies on 21,000 sq. meters of land. It is owned by Jorge Moll of the D’Or network, a network of luxury healthcare service providers. The network invested $400 million on the hospital to have a total of 115 private suites and 59 ICU units. The hospital has 9 hybrid rooms, which act as the operation rooms. These rooms utilize magnetic resonance and the most advanced technology. This way, surgeons can do tests on patients as they are undergoing surgery. Also, in the hybrid rooms, surgeons can have real time conversations with other surgeons allowing them to brainstorm and come up with the best treatment strategy for a particular patient.


If you haven’t been to the hospital before and happen to see it from a far, then I wouldn’t blame you if you confused this to be a five star hotel. The architectural design and the magnificent lighting might get you thinking that this is one heck of a hotel. But it isn’t. It is a Hospital Copa Star, built with luxury and comfort in mind. It is a dedication to the AAA class clientele of Rio de Janeiro and all other states in Brazil. Now, Brazilians don’t have to travel across the world in search for luxury healthcare services.

How is Copa Star a definition of Luxury? First, when you come to the hospital, the smell and surrounding will not alert you that you are in a medical facility. You are greeted by brightly lit corridors that are decorated with fine optical illusion works of art done by Toyota. You are further invited by a five star onsite restaurant that employs some of the best Swedish chefs. You and your guests can dine at the restaurant, and am calling them guests because they are treated as such. Your guests are allowed to sleep in your private suite, where they might not even notice the difference between these rooms and a fine hotel room. The rooms have a lobby with sofas and all you and your guest might need for comfort, while checking out the Copacabana beach. You also are allowed to customize your environment. By this I mean that you can play around with the lighting, adjust the position of your bed and draw the drapes as you please. All this is by thetouch of a few buttons on the iPads provided by the hospital. Visit the site to know more about Copa Star.

Possible future services were mentioned but due to the uncertainty of the current state of healthcare, the clinic’s staff will wait to see what’s on the horizon.The new clinic will have 11 staff members and two more will possibly be added in the future.

Renown chose the mall due to the town’s growing population, improved economy and greater access to health care facilities.

Renown become the first hospital in the area when Nevada reached statehood in 1864 and opened its first pediatric unit in 1949.
