Copa star hospital was inaugurated in October after three years of waiting and anticipation. Touted as the most modern medical facility in Brazil. Copa Star is located in Copacabana, Figueiredo Magalhães Street, on the southern side of Rio.
In its construction, the hospital resembles a five-star hotel, coupled with luxury and comfort. State-of-the-art technology has been incorporated into the hospital’s services that operate seamlessly. The designs are reminiscent of the architectural structure- Rede D ‘Or Sao Luiz, known for such concepts.
Copa star hospital has seven floors, occupying 21 thousand square meters of space. On the technological aspect of the facility, it can only be considered a smart hospital as patients have a certain level of autonomy.

On top of that, the technology allows inpatients to automate their beds, alter the lighting of the room, close and open curtains, and a feature that is not available in other hospitals.
