Leave it to Rio to find a way to make illness more enjoyable. The home of Carnival also plays host to the newest hospital concept, the luxury hospital. Its flagship, the Copa Star, sets a new standard in health care and hospital stays. Its creators plan to locate similar hospitals in the cities of São Paulo and Brasilia.

If you fall ill while in Rio de Janeiro, simply head to Figueiredo Magalhães street in Copacabana.The brainchild of cardiologist Jorge Moll, also founder of its parent hospital, the Rede D Or São Luiz, the Copa Star puts providing the highest quality health care first. The new hospital specializes in cardiology and neurology. It boasts a support staff of 550 individuals and 113 doctors. The right setting also contributes to improved health though.

Its creators designed it as a five-star luxury hotel with a multitude of amenities to make a patient’s stay more comfortable and provide a more comforting experience for their family and friends. Patients and visitors may enjoy the amenities while weathering a difficult time:

  • corridors lined with 231 paintings by Japan’s Yutaka.
  • green space and beachfront – 21,000 meters of it.
  • tranquil natural light.
  • a restaurant helmed by Swiss chef Steve Moreillon.
  • an iPad for each patient to use during their stay.

The hospital’s amenities extend further into patient care. Its developers invested much of its R $ 400 million into structural quality and medical equipment in the seven story luxury hospital. Patients enjoy:

  • quiet hallways since Copa Star uses an annex for patient and employee entry and exit.
  • a pleasing aroma since it uses woody, citrusy cleaners
  • state-of-the-art medical equipment
  • iPad apps to request doctor or nurse attention or to change the room’s settings

Prior to its construction, Moll notes that to receive the level of care available at Copa Star, one would need to travel Sao Paulo or outside Brazil. The 2013 construction of Copa Star brings home high quality medical care in a serene environment.


“We create an environment that unites technology with comfort and human acceptance. It is a personalized and exclusive service,” Moll said in a statement.
