Copa Star – One of Its Kind

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is back at it again with its state-of-the-art innovations and constant additions to improve the quality of life for many local residents as well as added touristic attract ability for outsiders. Its newest feats include an all-new hospital recently built in the very heart of Rio, one known as Copa Star. It offers the best in rapid response and patient care clinical services as well as a few outpatient resources. It also offers an exclusive, differentiated care package that is both new to the world of Brazilian health businesses and one of its kind. It combines top-notch luxury with quality technology for the best of both worlds in patient care. Visit the site Rede D’Or for more info.

As if such improvements were not enough, this unique medical facility’s staff have decided to resemble a five-star hotel with the look of this new building and have even allowed for current staff of Copa Star to grow and expand their interests within this highly-appealing, getaway resort medical facility. In fact, the staff have worked hard to earn the right to work there: They endured what some would describe as a brutal intensive training period that lasted for approximately two months and covered nearly every topic that they’ll often encounter – and even those that they’ll hopefully never face – to be more than prepared for the challenges ahead. It has now been nearly a year since the facility opened in 2016, and both it and the trained staff continue to work diligently to provide the best in patient care and quality networking with nearby facilities; the hospital officially opened in October 2016. It has not been an easy road, but it has been a good one as the needs for the hospital have grown and doctors have seen multiple patients every day.

The current staff comprises nearly 600 members from all around the world, and more than 110 of them are licensed doctors. Plus, even the higher-level employees have received top-notch training in preparation for the new facility’s grand opening: They were trained and even re-trained in the most exclusive of areas, details that even included when and where to approach certain patients as well as what clothing or makeup to use or not to use in any given scenario. Multiple practice scenarios were included in this rigorous training, and they occurred in the form of mock exercises, test runs, written and oral exams and even simulations with planned or unplanned emergencies. As with any top-notch training, there was plenty of room for error and learning mistakes so that, when the real emergency would present itself, every employee from the top down – even those serving as interns – would feel confident and prepared to act.
