Ever since one hospital in Brazil opened doors, a higher standard was set for the rest of the medical institution to reach. The hospital is located on Figueiredo Magalhães Street in the city of Copacabana, hence the name of the hospital – Copa Star.
There are quite a few features that make the Hospital Copa Star unique. The interior design of the building was modelled after the design of a five-star hotel. Both the common areas and the patient’s rooms are elegantly furnished to add luxury and a smooth feeling to the experience. There are plush couches and armchairs instead of uncomfortable plastic chairs lining up the walls. The lighting and the smell in the Copa Star Hospital are also a lot more different than what people are used to experiencing in general hospitals. The light at Copa Star is designed to resemble a homey atmosphere, and the smell is of citrus and wood.
Another feature that is one of a kind is the way the corridors are organised and structured. There is a separate area for staff members to use in order to secure the safe and quick transit of doctors and nurses. The separate area has proven to be most important and useful when there is an emergency regarding a patient. The separate area also provides a better experience for visitors to the hospital and gets rid of traffic in the corridors. View the design at RafArquitetura.Com
The walls of the hospital are decorated with pieces of art. In fact, the hospital has its gallery. The gallery is open to all patients to visit and has over two hundred paintings by the famous Japanese artists Yutaka. Both the leaders and the staff of Copa Star understand the fact that a speedy recovery also requires something to smile about. Thus there is art provided in order to elevate the mood of the patients.
Another great feature of the buildings how it was built. The material that had been used is ecologically friendly and it the structure of the hospital allows for better energy conservation. The Copa star hospital has been able to cut down on energy expenses significantly and aims to inspire other institutions to do the same and be more conscious of the environment. The hospital has the mission of taking care not only of the patients but also of the world that surrounds it.
The Copa Star Hospital was built to try and inspire other hospitals to reach and strive for a higher standard. They should provide better services, to create the best team of doctors and nurses they possibly can, to show more care for the environment and along the way to create a new era of hospitals all around the world.
