When you mention a five-star facility, people only think about hotels. However, things have changed, and five-star hospitals are now in place. While the concept may be new to some people, others have embraced the idea. One such hospital offering five-star services is the Copa Star Hospital in Rio de Janeiro and is owned by the D’Or Networks. With the D’OR Networks, the hospital is not the first of its kind as it has managed to establish other 22 hospitals offering such services in the Rio de Janeiro region. Other than Rio, the owners of this facility are looking to expand these services to other parts of the country such as Sao Paolo.
The idea of a five-star hospital in Brazil came after the conclusion of the 2014 world cup. People around the area saw the need for specialized hospital services that provide an environment that is capable of providing comfort and hospitality. The unique thing about this hospital is the way at which it provides its employees with the best technology and services there is in the market. They are in dire need of exceptional talent which they are constantly recruiting. For the good services they offer, they are posing a threat to surrounding hospitals. One thing that is common within the facilities is the warm and accommodating environment.
If there is one thing the Copa Star hospital emphasizes on is privacy. This has been achieved by having entrances and exits that are designed to see that there is little movement from unauthorized people. According to the hospital’s website, their staff has been trained to ensure that they handle each case as a special case. With this kind of services, patients who would have flown abroad choose the services of this hospital. Needless to say, the hospital has been designed to handle complex cardiac and neurological conditions. This makes the hospital one of the most competitive hospitals in the country. To ensure that the hospital gains the trust of the public, it uses a marketing strategy of assuring the public that the primary aim of the institution is to offer quality healthcare. The comfort is just secondary considerations. Among the most notable facilities in the institution are 59 ICUS. The hospital has over 500 employees that have been put through extra training to handle the complex equipment. For instance, the diagnostic center with modern MRI machines must be operated with care and caution.
The ICUs are fixed with video conferencing technology that allows communication with the exterior world in case of an emergency. The patients are afforded with iPad that are used to control the environment they live in. They can control lights and curtains using the same technology.
