Copa star is a hospital in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is one of the most modern medical facilities in Brazil. It is a $115 million project sitting on the 10,000-m² footprint. This great hospital contains 45ICUs, 105 rooms, 150 beds, a diagnostic center, and 9 operating rooms.
The materials used
The constructors of the hospital used PENETRON ADMIX throughout the hydrostatic slab concrete. They used the same material to ensure the concrete remained permanent and the whole structure remained durable. Another material used was the PENEBAR SW-55 at the concrete construction joints.
PENETRON crystalline technology was mostly used to build Copa stars underground structures. Robert Revera is the executive president and CEO of PENETRON. There were a few challenges during the construction of Hospital Copa star. One of the primary problems was the space. Not only was the specific height of the building limited, but space was also. The area where the project was to be constructed was very tight. But with the right material they were able to capitalize on the available space to fit the project.
Centrally located in the famous district of Copacabana, the state of the art hospital first looks like a 5-star hotel from a distance. However, it is an excellent hospital facility with all modern equipment such as hybrid rooms, bright operating rooms, a neurosurgery facility with robotic medicine and integrated MRI systems. The interior of the hospital is classier. It has features that help maximize energy efficiency by reducing power consumption by around 40%.
The Hospital Copa Star offers a serene environment that is suitable for the patient’s comfort. It has different decorative features that incorporate art and decorations, and they have been proven to reduce anxiety and nervousness to patients and their families. Just like most leading medical facilities in the world, Copa star also incorporated an internal aromatization by purchasing 231 kinetic artworks from a famous Japanese painter called Yutaka Toyota.
The doctors at the hospital are qualified and experienced. They are trained to handle different types of emergencies, all formal procedures, including core and complex ones. The hospital has more than 113 specialists.
Before it was opened, several countries had already chosen it as a reference hospital before the Olympics games in 2016. This shows how the hospital has met all the international standards.
