Copa Star Hospital in Rio de Janeiro recently celebrated its grand opening. The new 21-thousand-square-foot facility in the heart of Rio’s upscale south side is the brainchild of cardiologist and medical director Dr. Jorge Moll, who also heads up the D’or Sao Luiz hospital network. According to Dr. Moll, the goal of Copa Star is to bring five-star amenities to Rio de Janeiro. Before Copa Star, patients seeking this level of care would have to go to exclusive hospitals in Sao Paulo. Now Copa Star brings together the most advanced medical care with the highest standard of comfort possible.
Copa Star Hospital took three years to build at a cost of 400 million Brazilian reais. The hospital is located in the storied neighborhood of Copacabana on Figuereido Magalhaes Street. The centrally located and safe location make it easy to reach for local residents and visitors from other parts of the state and beyond. In addition to medical care, Copa Star and the D’Or Sao Luiz Network are committed to funding medical research which helps to maintain the high standard of care at the hospital and throughout the network.
